Microsoft releases KB4134661 and KB4134660 for Windows 10

Wednesday, 16 May, 2018

THE WINDOWS 10 APRIL UPDATE is continuing to mess with solid state hard drives as it's also incompatible with SSDs from Toshiba.

It is also worth noting that not all systems are getting the update right now, and there are no known issues or bugs hitting these two updates at the time of writing this story. So in the meantime, people with Windows 10 devices and Toshiba SSDs might want to hold fire on installing the April Update.

KB4134660 and KB4134661 update releases are privacy related.

As to the timeframe for a solution for these Toshiba SSDs, Microsoft believes that a fix will be ready in early June; so hopefully within a month.

This Windows update provides a notification of an improved privacy experience on upgrade to the Windows 10 April 2018 release.

The company also asked the users to ensure that mitigation against Spectre Variant 2 is enabled in the registry settings according to the recommended documentation.

Meanwhile, if you have one of these Toshiba drives, and you've already upgraded to the Windows 10 April 2018 Update, then subsequently noticed a drop in your battery life, you may want to revert back to the previous version of Windows 10 (Fall Creators Update).

Only users who are running the Windows 10 April 2018 Update (version 1803) will be seeing the first security update. Both KB4134660 and KB4134661 updates are targeted at Windows 10 Version 1703 and Windows 10 version 1709 users. Microsoft hasn't provided any more information on the two updates for Windows 10 but we'll update the article if and when new information is available.
