Windows 10 update is causing major issues, but Microsoft is aware

Windows 10 update issues

Windows as a Service is updated frequently with various bug
fixes and improvements for Windows 10, but in recent times,
Windows 10 has been plagued by an alarming amount of bugs.

Windows 10 update is apparently causing a series of problems
for users still trying to install the May 2020 Update (version
2004) and recent cumulative updates.

At the start of September, we reported that some minor bugs
were fixed by a patch Microsoft issued for Windows 10 version
2004, but the same update has introduced several new bugs
causing a wide range of issues, including Blue Screen of Death.

Fortunately, Microsoft is aware of the reports and the company
is investigating at least two issues reported by users.

Bug kills app logins

Windows 10 has been causing issues with Google Chrome, Edge,
OneDrive, and other apps with users finding that the operating
system is logging them out of their websites every time they
restart their system.

Last month, a
Microsoft spokesperson told us that the company is aware of the
reports and now Microsoft’s Principal program manager has
officially confirmed that his team is
looking into the problem.

“I’ve heard back from Microsoft they can repro now, so an
official fix should be on the way,” noted a
user, who appears to be working at Google.

As we mentioned above, this critical bug is forcing users to
re-enter their credentials and it’s also hitting apps made by
Microsoft.

When you hit the issue, you will notice that Windows 10 has
killed your web sessions, which means that you need re-enter
your credentials for Google, Twitter, Facebook, etc every time
you restart Windows 10.

Windows 10 credential feature

The bug was first reported in May and more users have started
to report the same issue in the past few weeks. Fortunately,
Microsoft has finally acknowledged it on a public platform and
a fix is on the way.

Domain profile and offline folder triggers BSOD

If you’ve been getting Blue Screen of Death errors lately, but
you had no idea what might be wrong with your PC, we finally
have an answer for you.

According to user reports,
a bug in Windows 10 version 2004 and 20H2 is causing Blue
Screen of Death errors when the system detects a domain profile
or offline folder feature on your device.

“After upgrading to Windows 10 2004, we encounter many
workstations with BUG CHECKS caused by mrxsmb20.sys while
logging in to a domain network. To fix this issue, we must log
in to the network with no network attached to the devices. This
issue did not occur on Windows 10 version 1903,” a user noted
in the Feedback Hub.

Fortunately, Microsoft is aware of the reports and the company
appears to be working on a fix, but we don’t know when the fix
will be deployed.

Windows 10’s September update problems worsen

Windows 10 has apparently hit further problems after more users
installed the September update, which was published last month.

Microsoft hasn’t yet confirmed the problems in September 2020
cumulative updates.

Some users are reporting that they are
experiencing Blue Screen of Death, system crashes, and even a
bug where their devices are being put into a reboot loop.

“This update is a failure and should be recalled. It’s causing
reset / automatic repair loops on my desktop system,” one user
noted in the community forum.

These issues are happening to those who have installed
KB4571756 (version 2004) or
KB4574727 (version 1909/1903) update.

Here’s a list of issues reported by users after the September
patch:

  • Blue Screen of Death.
  • System crashes.
  • Temporary user profile.
  • Start Menu and Windows Search issues.

On the Feedback Hub, it has been widely reported by users that
they’re still unable to apply the cumulative updates.

“I can’t install update KB4571756. It just gives error
0x800f081f. I have gone through the automated help and feedback
responses and nothing has fixed it,” one user said.

Such devices are being put into an installation loop where
Windows 10 will keep nagging users with the error messages on
every reboot and every attempt to install the updates will
fail.
