New Windows 10 update is causing a whole world of pain
Some Windows 10 users are having serious issues recently after the ‘KB5001330’ update was released, with some reports even stating that the update itself cannot be installed on some machines.
Earlier this week, Microsoft released its new April 2021 update including Windows 10 KB5001330 for version 10H2 / 2004, a required download to fix issues caused by previous updates, including long-lasting with the printer.

The latest reports from Windows indicate that various posts on its own platform and social media sites indicate that this is a growing problem, many users cannot install the update.
Comments on the issue are also available on the Windows Insider Feedback Hub, where one user said, “I have to install with error code 0x800f0984 due to frequent failure of KP5001330.
This is happening on Surface Studio 2 and Surface Pro 7. This is the second month that Microsoft has failed to perform a cumulative update on my machines. The installation stops at 20%, then at 73% (different from the 40% of the previous month), at 100%, fails. ”
So far, the following error messages have been reported:
Game performance issues and “ blue screen of death ”
On the Reddit thread regarding this issue, users also report that video games suffer from various issues such as graphics stuttering, a significant drop in frame rate, and even outright crashes.
Rolling back the update returned their systems to a usable state after users discovered that the cause of the problem had been updated.
I was also having issues with this update in the form of stutters/bottlenecks noticeable in games where this usually never happened with or without sync on “User A Comment”. Uninstalling also fixed the issue for me and I tested a different install. To confirm that the update was the culprit. It seems to be too important for your problem. I hope Microsoft will take care of this problem. ”
The new appearance of the old bug
A real cause for concern is the re-emergence of a temporary user bug that was reported in late 2020 causing files and user settings to disappear and forcing users to enter the guest profile. Fortunately, this seems to be a rare issue with limited reports, and you can manually transfer user files if needed while reverting the update.
The latest version of Windows reported that a user said “I can’t access my computer since the update.” It says “Login to the User Profile service failed.” User profile cannot be loaded ”.
