Latest Windows 10 Update Causing Several Issues

This weak the latest Windows 10 cumulative update was released, and since its release several users have complained about having issues with DNS resolution. This update was supposed to have fixed security vulnerabilities and bugs.

Instead, there have been cases where corporate users have had issues with the DNS resolution that prevents them from accessing shared folders on servers when attempting to access those folders using the server’s name.

Gaming Issues

The next issue that has been complained about is many users reporting that their games were experiencing issues from graphical sutters, drops in frames or even crashes. After users uninstalled the latest update the issues ceased, confirming that the update is the source of the issues.

Another user responded to this tweet saying “This update was also giving me issues in the form of noticeable stutter / hitching in games where this normally never happened, with or without vsync on.” “Uninstalling fixed the problem for me as well, and I tested on a separate install to confirm that the update was indeed the culprit. Sounds like pretty much the same issue as yours. I’m hoping that Microsoft will look into the issue.”

Resurgence of past bugs

In 2020 there was a ‘temporary user’ bug which caused saved files to disappear and user’s would be forced to log in with a guest profile. So far this is a rare issue with the latest Windows 10 update, and fixing it is as simple as uninstalling the latest update.

If you are receiving an error saying “the User Profile Service service failed the sign in. User profile can not be loaded” then you can do this to fix it:

  • Open up the Settings app.
  • Click ‘Update & Security’.
  • Click ‘Windows Update’
  • Click ‘View update history’.
  • Click ‘Uninstall updates’ then select KB5001330 to uninstall it.
  • Reboot

It’s quickly becoming a trend that Windows 10 updates are adding new issues every time. Microsoft hasn’t said anything about this latest issue. To be on the safe side, try stay 1 update behind if possible, so that when you do move to a new update, any issues and bugs will have been patched by Microsoft.
