Problems with the Latest Windows 10 Update
Microsoft confirmed a number of issues with the August update for Windows. There are issues like the black screen at the time of logging in to your PC.
It impacted millions of users in many other serious things. Microsoft said that after the installation of the updates, the applications which were using Visual Basic 6 (VB6), scripts and apps which were using Visual Basic Scripting, and macros which were using Visual Basic for Applications (VBA), can stop to respond and you may encounter a message saying “invalid procedure call error”.
You shouldn’t think that VB6 is something which will not concern you since you are not a programmer, then you are wrong. It will definitely concern you if you or your company use Microsoft Office. To power the Office scripts, VBA needs to work with VB6. These also help to power macros and many other processes that are important to many organizations.

Steps Taken by Microsoft Regarding This Problem
Microsoft said that they are working on the fix for this problem. They also said that it will be coming soon. For the people who are finding that their WIndows experience has broken, they can check for updates manually.
Fix for the problems of Visual Basic are being rolled out. However, these fixes are only for the Windows 10 version 1709.
It is expected that the next update to be made available will be for the Windows 10 version 1809 and version 1903. These fixes will be first checked by the Windows insider before its release.
The Security Problems it Produces
Security is a major factor while using a computer. You should always update your Windows to the latest updates as soon as they are made available. However, security is becoming less due to the updates which make Windows freeze and sometimes even crash. There have been times where an update has broken the security features.
It is a major carelessness at the side of Microsoft as the problems with the Visual Basics due to the updates should have been exposed at the time of testing. With a big organization like Microsoft, they have access to resources for efficient testing methods.
This type of problem will discourage users from updating software which might be crucial for their WIndows security. This will make the users vulnerable to the risk which could have been solved by these updates. According to these users, security is no at the forefront of their concern, they concern more about doing the work they have in hand.
