  1. Weird display issue following installation of KB4540673


    Two issues here: My PC started acting up today in an odd manner. Specifically, the bottom 20% or so of my display flickers in some modes. The best way to describe it is the bottom 20% or so of the screen randomly moves upward some amount before moving back into position. This only occurs in some modes; the desktop is fine, the logon screen is affected. PC was fine yesterday.

    Checked windows update history, and sure enough, KB4540673 installed this morning. Tried to uninstall the update, and it refuses to uninstall. I attempted to uninstall the update through the Windows "Installed Updates" panel, through the command prompt, and through the uninstall update menu you can access by holding shift as you restart. I attempted to reinstall the update (hoping I could then reinstall it again), but that failed as the update is detected as installed.

    So the first issue I want resolved is the probably borked install of KB4540673. Hopefully that fixes the initial issue with the display.

    EDIT

    As an update: I don't think KB4540673 ever installed right in the first place. If I go to C:\Windows\servicing\Packages, I see the packaged for other KB updated, but I don't see anything for KB4540673.
