Microsoft is currently pushing the KB4023057 update to a small number of users. This update is a service channel update to solve compatibility issues.
Under normal circumstances, Microsoft will push this update before the major version is released. After installation, you can reset the registry, reset the network, reset the system update settings, and so on.
What is interesting is that the target version of this update is Windows 10 20H1/20H2, and there is no new major version update waiting to be released recently.
Therefore, the greatest possibility is that Microsoft is preparing for the push of Windows 10 20H2. Earlier, Microsoft has announced that it will suspend the push of this version.
The KB4023057 update is not a new non-security update. This update has been pushed many times before. Of course, this update will continue to be pushed repeatedly in the future.
Simply put, Microsoft uses this update to solve the problem that the system may prevent the update. Normally, this is to prepare in advance for the release of the new version.
Here’s a list of changes this patch could make to your system:
- Reset your network settings automatically if problems are detected.
- Reset your Windows Registry: Any keys that may be preventing updates from being installed will be clean up.
- Disable, repair or modify Windows components responsible for Windows Update.
- Compress files in your profile directory.
- Reset Windows Update database.
