In a support page for Windows 10 update KB4482887 Microsoft has recommended that some users should uninstall the update if it is having a negative impact on their system. Users have reported authentication problems with Internet Explorer 11, issues with installing some types of MSI and MSP files, and freezing or FPS loss during gaming.
A growing number of games have been reportedly affected by KB4482887. Among those mentioned online are Destiny 2, Apex Legends, Call of Duty 4, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Sea of Thieves. Gamers have experienced frame-rate drops, lagging mouse performance, and specifically “broccoli” errors in Destiny 2 when the player’s GPU hasn’t been properly detected.
