Microsoft released its traditional monthly Patch Tuesday update this week for the Windows 10 operating system. According to user feedback, the update has turned out to be a pretty big nuisance.
For Windows 10 versions 20H2 (October update) and 2004 (May), the update is labeled KB5001330. It brings fixes for more than a hundred security vulnerabilities, fixes an issue with printers, and replaces the Microsoft Edge Legacy browser with the newer Chromium-based Microsoft Edge.
Some users simply cannot install the update, receiving the error code 0x800f0984, 0x800f081f or 0x800f0922, which is not uncommon in recent months. Other users experience problems with games – video stutters, frames per second drop significantly, or even fatal crashes.
There are complaints about authorization failures and the “loss” of user files due to a failure with a temporary profile. For some users, it comes down to the “Blue Screen of Death” and the failure of the system to boot.
