Next Windows 10 update to fix memory leaks, slow copying and app crashes

Microsoft is in the final steps of releasing update previews for supported versions of Windows 10. The update will fix several key issues in the company’s operating system, including app and game crashes, memory leaks, and slow file copying.

The update is already available in the Release Preview Ring of the Windows 10 Insider Program. Microsoft releases preview updates for its Windows 10 and 11 operating systems after each month’s patch day. Patch Tuesday occurs on the second Tuesday of every month, and the preview updates are typically released around the third or fourth week of the month.

The company highlights all changes in a blog entry on the official Windows Insider Blog. The update fixes several long-standing issues in Windows 10, including a DirectX issue with d3d9.dll that was causing some apps and games to crash on affected systems.

Some of the issues have not been officially confirmed by Microsoft; Such is the case with the issue that slowed down file copy jobs on Windows. Windows 10 users can use third-party programs such as Fast Copy, TeraCopy or UltraCopier, which promise more convenience and performance improvements when copying files.

Microsoft also plans to fix two memory issues in the next update. The first affected systems are running 24/7, the second was caused by a bug in the deduplication driver that exhausted all physical memory on the affected machines.

The main ones are listed below for your convenience:

  • We fixed an issue that could affect some apps using d3d9.dll with certain graphics cards and could cause those apps to close unexpectedly.
  • We fixed a rare issue preventing Microsoft Excel or Microsoft Outlook from opening.
  • We fixed a memory leak issue affecting Windows systems used 24 hours a day, every day of the week.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in Microsoft’s deduplication driver consuming large amounts of non-paged pool memory. This exhausts all physical memory on the computer, causing the server to become unresponsive.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in slower file copying.
  • We fixed an issue that could cause a system to become unresponsive when a user signs out when using Microsoft OneDrive.

Windows users affected by the issues should consider installing the upcoming preview updates for the stable versions of Windows 10 to fix these issues. The fixes will be officially released on Patch Tuesday in June 2022.

Now you: Have you encountered any of these problems while using Windows?
