Users can finally start to enjoy the full benefits of Windows 10 after Microsoft released an update to fix a major issue with Anniversary Update.

Since its release last month, many users have complained of experiencing problems after installing the blockbuster update.

One of the main complaints from users was that the update caused their machines to crash or freeze upon start up.

However, Microsoft has now said it has fixed the problem.

On Wednesday, the tech giant began rolling out the Windows 10 cumulative update KB3176938, that it says will fix the issue.

The company also announced that this new update will be included in all future downloads of the Anniversary Update.

This means that it should be the last of the issue with anyone downloading the Anniversary Update in the future automatically receiving the fix.

For users who experience problems after installing the Anniversary Update first time round, they should no be OK to re-install.

The Windows 10 Anniversary Update is the first major update since Microsoft launched its new operating system.

It is meant to bring with it a host of new features and improvements including a redesigned Start Menu, improved security and enhancements to the Cortana digital assistant.

However, since the update was launched, Microsoft has been inundated with complaints from users experiencing problems.

As well as the issue of it freezing machines, the update has also left many millions of webcams unuseable after Microsoft ended support for MJPEG and H264 encoding.

Last week users started reporting that they had been left with the infamous Blue Screen of Death and were forced to reboot their machine when trying to connect Kindle to their PCs.

And it’s not just users which have been critical of Microsoft in relation to Windows 10.

Civil rights group the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) hit out at the company over how it handles user data saying it made “choose between having privacy and security”.
