Issue with latest Windows 10 v1703 update

You may want to hold off on updating to the latest [patch Tuesday] monthly update released on October 10th if using the v1703 edition (Build 15063; “Creator Update”, Redstone 2) of Windows 10.

Systems with support enabled for USB Type-C Connector System Software Interface (UCSI) may experience a blue screen or stop responding with a black screen when a system shutdown is initiated.

Microsoft has yet to release a fix but the temporary solution is to disable UCSI in the computer system’s BIOS. This will also disable UCSI features in the Windows operating system.

Experience a black screen in Windows 10 v1703?

If you are experience a black screen after every reboot for anywhere from 5 minutes to 10 minutes after installing an application from the Windows Store and you are using a computer that came with Windows 10 v1703 [i.e. a computer made by Dell, HP, Acer, ASUS, etc.], there is an update to correct this here.

It seems that there are some registry keys in Windows 10 v1703 “…that conflict with the app readiness service”.
