Microsoft says it will fix Windows 10 bug that causes weird errors

Windows 10 May Update desktop

Microsoft has finally acknowledged an undocumented issue in
Windows 10 May 2020 Update (version 2004) where weird ESENT
warnings will be found under the hood in Event Viewer. Windows
Event Viewer is a built-in tool that shows a log of apps and
system messages, including errors and warnings with detailed
information.

In Windows 10 version 2004, when you access Event Viewer tool,
you’ll notice errors
linked to ESENT with the error code ‘642’. ESSENT is
basically a DLL component and it is used by ESE (or Extensible
Storage Engine) runtime, which is a data storage technology
that facilities search in Explorer and desktop.

In addition, ESE is also used for indexing media catalog on the
business computers and this process should be running in the
background to help Windows 10 with searches within the
operating system.

Event 642 warning

The problem with ‘ESENT 642’ has been widely reported by users
in several threads on Microsoft’s community forums and other
platforms, including Reddit. A Microsoft support staff
reportedly told one user that the warnings could be due to a
problem with the Windows.old folder.

“My Windows.old file is now gone and I have noticed a
considerable drop of the ESENT errors 642. I did a Disk Clean
up but I am seeing only “one group”  of 6 ESENT errors
containing these two below in that one group and they appear
right after a restart,” one user noted.

Event errors may also indicate synchronization issues with the
Extensible Storage Engine (ESE), but users fear that these
errors may lead to performance issues with apps, games and the
OS itself.

Fortunately, Microsoft has confirmed that they’ll fix the
problem with ESE and a future release of Windows will prevent
the system from logging Event ID 642.

“Based on feedback we’re turning off ESENT Warning Event ID
642,” Microsoft noted in
the changelog of Build 20197, which was released on August 21,
2020.

Microsoft offers a fix for WWAN LTE modems

In a new update to the Windows release dashboard, Microsoft
confirmed that they’re still blocking May 2020 Update on
computers with WWAN LTE modems drivers.

If you’ve already upgraded to version 2004 and you’ve issues
with your internet, Microsoft says you can enable then disable
Airplane mode to address the “no
internet” bug and other internet issues.
