Problem with Patch Tuesday Windows 10 Crashing Issues
Microsoft confirmed some “known issues” like “appearance of black screen during the first login on installation of updates”. This is not much to worry as it affects the users only by a small number. It appears only the first time they logon after the installation of an update.
Anything impacting a large number of users is a far more serious issue. And Microsoft confirms that this update Patch Tuesday does just that. Furthermore, on installing this update Visual Basic 6, Macros using Visual Basic for Application and scripts which uses VB Scripting Edition might stop responding. In addition, an “invalid procedure error” might pop up.

Warning by Microsoft for Windows 10 Update Crash
Windows 10 made the most remarkable change in history. But to write again the update rules is immaterial if Microsoft has to constantly apologize for the quality of the updates. And this has occurred once again.
Just 1 week after the non-functioning of Windows 10 PCs with a prior update, Microsoft warned its users of new serious problems. Microsoft affirmed update KB4493509 can freeze computers both while in operation and in booting.
After the Windows 10 May update, many complaints aroused on random system crashes, reboots, and freezes. This occurred on isolated systems.
The issue is mysterious as there is yet no confirmed pattern connecting the reboots and crashes to a particular cumulative updates or Windows versions. Also, there is no surety if the same might connect to any particular or unique driver that the users complaining are facing in common.
Windows 10 Crashing Issues
Freezes in operation will impact more business computers as it affects Cluster Shared Volumes. Also, the lock-ups might lead the system to act uselessly on restarting after installation of the update. This is caused as a result of conflicts with antivirus software.
The best part is that things will change in the near future. Microsoft’s all versions of Windows 10 are about to dealy with both major and minor updates. Finally, this will allow users the control and enables them to block buggy software.
It has also come into the picture that many users when trying to install the updates for Windows 10 are getting an error message with the error code 0x8007370. Some PCs are unable to install the update with the code KB4512508 that have installed Windows 10 update. Microsoft is yet to notify its users of the solution to the issue.
Security Problems Associated with the Issue
Microsoft, with the abundance of resources, should have market-oriented quality testing processes. This leads to a security concern as it makes users think twice before installing such updates from the security point of view. Both business continuity and the hundreds of Windows ordinary users, who will see these bugs and instantly switch them off wheresoever possible.
These are those users who are most at risk from the flaws that get sorted in those updates. Also, they are those for whom security and safety is not front and center when the question of using computers arises, getting any job done is all that matters.
Roll Back Windows 10 Crashing Issues
Windows 10 allows you a 10-day window to return to the previous Windows versions. This feature is useful and offers you sufficient time to judge whether the update is problematic or not.
To do this go to the Settings of Windows 10 > Update Security> Recovery. Below the “Reset this PC”, you will see the “go back” option to go back to the previous version of Windows 10. Tap on “Get started” and follow the procedure to return to Windows 10.
Also, note that this option is only available for 10 days after a build update of Windows 10.
Microsoft’s latest features in Windows 10 update crash May 2019 rolls back the version of Windows to a constant working one. If any bug causes a PC to completely non-functioning from booting, manual recovery is the ultimate solution.
Thus, it is worth to say that the maximum of users go through these updates without any hassles but the majority is not sufficient when the results of many can be so severe.
Hopefully, with the given frequency of problems Microsoft is dealing with its updates at present taking necessary steps to get away from these roadblocks is to be seen.
