April Patch Tuesday sparked complaints from some users about performance issues and even the dreaded BSOD

Two days ago, we saw how Microsoft released the April patch corresponding to the corresponding patch on Tuesday. An update with various improvements (it fixed printing errors with some printers) and additions which, among other things, confirm the elimination of Edge with the HTML engine. And with all these improvements, users are complaining about various issues.

According to the information provided by Windows Latest, while installing the KB5001330 hotfix, some users have different issues. Performance, user profile errors, or system crashes that begin to appear are reflected in the forums.

Defects of all kinds

These are versions 19041.928 and 19042.928 for Windows 10 on branches 20H2 and 2004 respectively. A mandatory patch which nevertheless poses problems again on some computers after its installation. Flaws of various types that we will now experience in case you see yourself reflected in any of them.

A first type of problem concerns the fact that some users cannot install this latest update on their computers. When you try, some of these error messages appear on the screen:

0x800f081f 0x800f0984 0x800f0922

One of the users complains on the Microsoft forums that the latest update could not be installed and claims that it offers the same flaw as the KB5000842 patch that was already suffering from.

“Hello everyone! I am getting an error while installing KB5001330 Windows 10 version 20H2 update. I don’t know how to fix the problem. I have fixed Windows update issues, but it didn’t was not helpful. I have made 4 consecutive attempts to install KB5001330, but failed each time. I am looking for your kind help. The latest update has the same issue that we have been facing with KB5000842 over the past few years. last two weeks. “

Error 0x800f0984 is one of the most common when downloading update KB5001330. This is another comment regarding this decision.

“I am getting a constant KP5001330 install error with error code 0x800f0984. This is happening on Surface Studio 2 and Pro 7. This is the second month in a row that Microsoft is unable to perform the cumulative update on my computers. The installation was successful. Stops at 20%, then again at 73% (different from 40% last month), then at 100%, then fails “

These are installation related issues, but they also complain in other instances of profile related failures. An error which seemed to have been corrected at the beginning of the year and which causes the operating system to load with a new user profile after installation.

“I cannot access my computer since the update. It indicates that the User Profile Service could not log in. The user profile cannot be loaded.”

Other bugs refer to the drop in onscreen FPS when playing certain games, making them unplayable. This user on Reddit complains about this issue in Windows 10 20H2:

“With an RTX 3080 and a Ryzen 9 5900X … Call of Duty Cold War and Warzone were both 1 fps (yes one, not 100) and cannot be played in full. When I run other games in the display window, the Chrome performance on my secondary monitor is also very successful. Probably avoid that as it does something very messed up for gaming performance. “

One of the premise of this update is that it would completely uninstall Edge Legacy from computers, but apparently some users are complaining that it only deleted the icon and the corresponding files are still there.

“This update was supposed to remove the old Edge, but it clearly doesn’t completely do that. You still have a shell shortcut: AppsFolder and a folder installed on C: Windows SystemApps. The only difference seems to be that the icon has been removed “.

Until the blue screen

In some cases, they’ve even encountered the hated blue screen of death while updating with errors related to a driver incompatibility or lack of it.

At this time, Microsoft is not reporting any bugs of this type on the Patch Tueday page. However, if you have already downloaded the update and find any of these bugs, you can eliminate them in the most drastic way that we have seen on other occasions.

If this is your case and your computer has been affected by one of these issues, an effective solution is to eliminate the update that is causing the failures: a process that goes through the route “Setup”, “Upgrade”. update and security ”and within it, click on“ View update history ”. The next step is to use the “Uninstall updates” option by marking the corresponding update and then clicking on the “Uninstall” button. And if you haven’t updated yet and are not sure about these complaints, you can temporarily pause the update.
