Don’t overlook this crucial Windows 11 update if you utilize a VPN.

It is not your doing; the current situation is due to Windows. If your VPN on your Windows 11 or Windows 10 device is struggling to connect, it is likely due to Microsoft’s April security updates for Windows 11 (KB5036893) and Windows 10 (KB5036892), which have been identified as the root cause of the issues.

Fortunately, there is positive news. Microsoft has revealed that a solution is now accessible to address the VPN issues that users are facing.

The security updates KB5037771 for Windows 11 and KB5037768 for Windows 10 are now accessible and should be awaiting installation on your Windows device.

As always, to update Windows, you can search for available updates by navigating to Settings > Windows update > Check updates. Alternatively, you can use the Windows + I shortcut. Microsoft recommends that Windows users download and install the latest security update for all their devices.

This issue does not appear to be widespread, affecting specific versions for Windows 11 users: 23H2, 22H2, and 21H2. For Windows 10 users, the impacted versions are limited to 22H2 and 21H2. This situation could have escalated, but fortunately, it did not.

In the Microsoft release notes, a resolution for a Bitlocker KB5034204 error is listed, as well as a forthcoming fix for updates to Microsoft Edge mistakenly causing the Copilot app to appear in the list of installed apps within the settings menu. Given all the discussions on the impact of AI, we can only hope that a resolution for this Copilot issue is currently being developed.
