Addressed issue with the token broker where it was leaking a token that caused sessions to stay allocated after logoff.

Using the exe/u tool to update Data Recovery Agent (DRA) encryption keys fails unless user certification encryption already exists on the machine. This issue has been resolved now.

An issue where USBHUB.SYS randomly causes memory corruption that results in random system crashes that are extremely difficult to diagnose, has been resolved in this update.
An issue has fixed that was affecting the download of some games from the Windows Store during the pre-order phase. Download fails with the error code 0x80070005, and the device attempts to restart the download from the beginning.
