Windows 10 April 2018 Update is available for manual download
and many users rushed to install the update, but it
appears that the newest version of the operating system is
causing BSODs for few users. It is worth noting that the issue
isn’t widespread and it appears to be affecting a wide
variety of hardware configurations.
The most common stop codes of BSODs
is CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED in some Windows 10 April 2018
Update systems. Not many users are pointing to BSODs after
upgrading devices to Windows 10 April 2018 Update (version
1803). The BSOD could be triggered on Windows 10 April 2018
Update devices anytime regardless of the tasks you’re
The BSOD could happen on any hardware and you can refer to the
general workaround to fix the issues. Judging from reports on
social media platform, there doesn’t seem to be a specific
pattern, and it’s hard to reproduce the bug. There’s a chance
that a driver compatibility is causing the BSOD on some
systems, or it could be the outdated programs.
Microsoft hasn’t acknowledged the problems yet but the bugs
could be addressed with the next cumulative update arriving on
Tuesday. You can also
clean install Windows 10 April 2018 Update to see if
it makes any difference.
At this point, it’s not really easy to speculate the
pattern. But by the looks of things, the culprit is a buggy
driver. You can reinstall the OS to address the
Critical_Process_Died error on Windows 10 April 2018 Update
2018 devices, and finally update the drivers or disable the
outdated programs. Again, if nothing works for you, it’s
better to temporarily roll back to the Windows 10 Fall Creators
Update until Microsoft fixes these issues.
It’s worth noting that the Windows 10 April 2018 Update is only
available as a manual download which means that the bugs could
be experienced due to drivers and programs compatibility
issues. As noted above, Windows 10 April 2018 Update with fixes
will be released to more users next week, and it could address
the reported BSOD errors.
Microsoft is also expected to push security updates for all
versions of Windows on Tuesday. The update will also address
most of the bugs reported in the current version of Windows 10
April 2018 Update, and on the basis of the feedback, the update
will be shipped to more users.
