Problem

Microsoft Windows 10 latest update 1803 is causing Remote APP to work slow. It also affects right mouse click.

Microsoft is aware of this problem, and is working on a fix, with an approximate ETA of End of June 2018, and will tentatively be under the following KB: KB4284848

Turn Off Windows Updates (Temporarily)

Until Microsoft releases a working patch to resolve this problem, you can turn off Windows updates on your workstations, or block the 1803 from installing.

If your organization is not domain joined, and patching cannot be controlled centrally, you can install a small utility on your workstations, which will allow the workstation to prevent updating until further action. Please see and download the Rizonesoft Windows 10 Update Switch
