Microsoft has been having some “issues” of late. It’s April Windows 10 rollout had to be delayed on account of some mysterious BSOD (“Blue Screen of Death”) issues. This month’s rollout is plagued by similar problems, trading the BSOD issues for problems with both “Hey Cortana” and Google’s Chrome browser.
The problem is that when you try to navigate the web using Chrome with the latest Windows 10 update, the entire system will inexplicably hang. The company is hoping to have a fix ready for release in time for the next “Patch Tuesday” on May 8, but in the meantime, offered the following suggestions to users who are impacted by this issue:
If none of the above works for you, then your only other option is to simply reboot the system, which is beyond annoying. Fortunately, however, it’s only temporary. The company is currently working on a fix (although whether it’s ready by Patch Tuesday remains to be seen).
While this is by no means the kiss of death, it is troubling that the last two updates have had major issues. Unless the issue is identified and remedied, the company could be facing larger and more pervasive problems in the months ahead.
