Windows 10’s KB5001330 Update is Problematic, Here’s how to uninstall it!

by Tushar

Although Windows 10 is the most used operating system, it’s not without its flaws. Windows 10 users often encounter severe problems after installing a new update. Recently, Microsoft released a new update, ‘KB5001330’, which seems to be more problematic than the previous one.

Many Windows 10 users have reported installation issues, performance issues, temporary user profile bugs, system crash issues after installing the KB5001330 update. The update was released only for Windows 10 version 20H2/2004, and it was a mandatory security update, claiming to fix several bugs, and vulnerabilities cause due to the previous update.

Details of Problematic Update

However, the problem with the KB5001330 update is that users are unable to install it on their hardware. During the automatic update, it’s triggering following error messages:

  • 0x800f081f
  • 0x800f0984
  • 0x800f0922

The problem is not only limited to the installation error. Few users on Reddit have reported that they are facing a Game Performace issue after installing the update. While playing games, users are experiencing BSOD errors (Blue Screen of Death).

What’s worst is that the update seems to bring back the infamous Temporary user profile bug. For those who don’t know, the temporary user profile bug has created lots of havoc the previous year, but Microsoft fixed it with a new update.

Now it looks like, with KB5001330, the profile bug is making a comeback. The profile bug creates a new user profile when the operating system loads up. When this happens, user files and settings could disappear.

The latest update from Microsoft for version 20H2/2004 looks problematic from all angles, but if you have already installed it and experiencing problems, then don’t worry; we have a solution for you.
