Microsoft has released the Windows 11 KB5006674 cumulative update which includes security updates, performance enhancements and bug fixes for Windows 11 21H2.
Microsoft announced last week that compatibility issues prevent Windows 11 upgrades from working on devices with installed applications, but the new update will fix compatibility issues with the Intel “Killer” and Dell “SmartByte” network optimization software.
According to Microsoft, the new update fixes “Addresses known compatibility issues between some Intel “Killer” and “SmartByte” networking software and Windows 11 (original release). Devices with the affected software might drop User Datagram Protocol (UDP) packets under certain conditions. This creates performance and other issues for protocols based on UDP. For example, some websites might load slower than others on the affected devices, which might cause videos to stream slower in certain resolutions. VPN solutions based on UDP might also be slower.”
In addition, Microsoft stated that it has made some improvements to the service stack, which is used to fix bugs or problems that prevent Windows updates from being installed properly.
To install the update, users are advised to go to Start>Settings>Windows Update after which they click on ‘Check for Updates.’
