Microsoft's latest Windows 10 update will be called the November 2019 Update, and the final build is available now to Windows Insiders in the Release Preview Ring.

"After installing KB4517389 today can't open Edge". As a temporary fix, Windows 10 1903 users could simply uninstall the KB4517211 update to resolve the Print Spooler issue.

Of course, nobody likes to try accessing the Start Menu and not being able to do so because of an error. Users on Answers.com forum are reporting the issue. It does not start anymore. Users further added saying that the "Edge start menu icon is grayed out" along with a white line across the bottom.

I asked them to play more with their heads [in the second half] and be stronger defensively, while keeping our concentration. Portugal were beaten 2-1 by Ukraine in the Group B match, a result which meant Ukraine qualified for next summer's finals.

Windows 10 KB4517389 was released on October 8 for all consumers as an automatic update. "Apart from VMware 14, which does not work any longer, too". But at the same time, the update also introduces new batch of issues in the form of broken Edge browser and Start Menu. Of course, such operation is not really recommended since the update has security features, and let's be serious: Microsoft Edge isn't an unreplaceable browser, so you can live happily without it. It is now doing the rounds of Release Preview Ring Insiders. The firm has said elsewhere that it's aware of problems though, at least in the case of the Start menu, and that this should be resolved later in October.

While that's sort of good news - of course, affected users would appreciate a faster fix - the recent run of issues following Microsoft's Windows updates is causing confusion even among Windows technical experts.

Microsoft has released a manual patch for its Windows 10 Update Assistant utility, earlier versions of which suffered from a local privilege escalation (LPE) vulnerability - but the researcher who discovered it says the flaw is not 'practical' to exploit.
