Microsoft rushes out fix for critical Windows 10 bugs

Windows 10 critical bugs

Last year, Microsoft confirmed a frustrating bug that could
prevent some users from resetting Windows 10. The bug affected
“Reset this PC’ feature of Windows 10, which is located inside
the Settings app, and it basically allows users to restore
factory settings of the device.

Using the ‘Reset this PC’ feature, you can also remove all your
files from the device and reinstall the operating system when
something goes wrong after deploying Windows Updates.

However, a weird bug in a cumulative update disabled the
feature for some users running Windows 10 version 1809 or newer
with the following error message:

  • There was a problem when resetting your PC. No changes were
    made

In a support
document, Microsoft noted that only certain configurations
are affected and the tech giant is now rolling out a full fix
via the
January 2021 cumulative updates. If you’re still unable to
run the ‘Reset this PC’ feature, Microsoft recommends trying
Deployment Image Servicing Management (DISM) command.

Microsoft is fixing unexpected Blue Screen errors

After the
December 2020 cumulative updates, another critical bug
emerged in Windows 10, which crashes PCs with the dreaded

Blue of Death error when users run the Check Disk tool
(also known as chkdsk).

Microsoft noted that the
‘NTFS FILE SYSTEM’ error occurs under certain circumstances
only, and a fix is now rolling out with the January 2021
cumulative updates.

“Addresses an issue that might damage the file system of some
devices and prevent them from starting up after running chkdsk
/f,” the company said.

If you haven’t applied the update yet, you can do so by heading
to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update.

Once the patch is installed, you’ll be able to restart your PC
normally when you run the Check Disk command. The company is
also rolling out a fix for the error to enterprise customers,
which should reach them as part of the January update cycle,
and it’s an automatic update.

Data corruption bug

Microsoft has also confirmed that it has seen reports of a bug
that can corrupt users hard drives when they open a special
Windows shortcut or HTML file.

It’s a serious vulnerability and it could be abused to corrupt
your hard drive, but Microsoft is promising a fix in a future
update, which could arrive in February or March.
