Some Windows 10 configurations are reporting problems after the recent update “KB5001330”. According to Windows Latests, users who are reporting these hiccups talk about installation issues, performance, temporary user profile error, and system crashes.
This has all started to happen since Microsoft released new updates earlier this week. In order to version 20H2 / 2004Microsoft released Windows 10 KB5001330, a mandatory security update intended to fix several vulnerabilities and issues that had been caused by the previous update, including printer issues that we reported a few weeks ago.

If your device is affected and you are trying to update directly to the April 2021 security patch, and it might fail with one of the following error messages:

In isolated cases, there also appears to be a reappearance of the infamous temporary user profile glitch. This bug was last reported in December and basically creates a new user profile when the operating system loads after applying the cumulative update. When this happens, files and user settings (such as wallpaper) may disappear.

Fortunately, there is a solution for the reported problem and that is to roll back the update or manually move user files.
