Windows 10 cumulative update KB5000842 fixes freezing issues

Microsoft has released the non-security preview update KB5000842 for all editions of Windows 10, version 20H2 and Windows 10, version 2004, with fixes for system freeze and activation issues.

After you install this cumulative update, you may experience issues with the system and lost user certificates when updating from Windows 10 1809 or later versions using outdated installation media.

More details about the types of updates Microsoft releases each month can be found in the Windows 10 update servicing cadence guide.

Highlights of the KB5000842 update

With the monthly preview update to KB5000842, Microsoft addresses an issue that could prevent systems running Windows 10 2004 from responding during hybrid shutdowns.

This cumulative update also fixes bugs that cause devices to stop functioning and generate error codes 0xC9, as well as a heap leak that causes high memory consumption in explorer.exe.

Microsoft also fixed a Windows activation issue affecting Windows 10, version 2004 systems after installing last month’s preview update KB4598291 that fixed device deactivation and freezing issues.

Finally, the update removes the unsupported Microsoft Edge Legacy and installs the new Microsoft Edge. Microsoft announced last month that Windows 10 April Updates will permanently remove Edge Legacy.

Other highlights included in this update:

  • We fixed an issue that could prevent the cluster network interface from functioning for a short time. Therefore, the network interface controller (NIC) is marked as failed.
