    Must be the Supreme Court update First Monday in October... :D
    Its an out of band update (not on the second Tuesday of the month). Those are usually reserved for Zero day vulnerabilities and such.

    It seems to fix the Bluetooth issues related to the k810 keyboard. I don't see that the BT driver is revved which I would have expected. Either way, I'm happy.

    That would be awesome. Did you also check with the Setpoint utility installed?

    The updated drivers have solved my intermittent Arc Mouse SE issues. Scrolling is now smooth as silk!

    Thanks guys for this post. Just checked my device and I have an update (1.5MB) for System Hardware although it does not say what hardware. Not real helpful Microsoft.

    My wifi issues seems to be fixed...no limited connectively sign which is nice. Plus my connection doesn't throttle when downloading anything. But when I turn Bluetooth is turned on...It still cuts my connection speed in half. I don't think that will ever get fixed??? Its terrible...

    Sorry, I'm not a Setpoint user but would guess it's fixed.
