If you have a Surface 2 or Surface RT and are uncomfortable uninstalling updates and blocking them, there is apparently a 3rd party web browser that might work for you called Sidekick Private Browser. I don't know anything about it, but here is the direct link https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/sidekick-private-browser/9wzdncrd2mtl

Please let us know your opinions of this third party browser if you decide to use it. 

This isn't a fix for the problem, and Microsoft still has not commented. 

If you want to uninstall this update:


Go to Start , and select Control Panel > Programs > View installed updates.

In the search box in the upper-right corner, enter kb4516067.

Select Update for Microsoft Windows (kb4516067) > Uninstall.


Then open Services and disable Windows Update for now. Just remember to re-enable WU after a reply is posted that Microsoft has issued a fix to insure you get future (hopefully TESTED) updates.
