KB4598299 and KB4598301 for Windows 10: Microsoft Admits the Disastrous Updates

Windows 10 users are used to faulty updates of Microsoft’s latest operating system, which is one of the reasons why so many people still prefer Windows 7. Neither of us is a fan of apps crashing or the spooky ‘Blue Screen of Death’ appearing and haunting our computers, and that’s precisely why we should avoid recent updates for Windows 10.

TomsGuide.com brings the terrible news about the faulty updates known as KB4598299 and KB4598301. Microsoft didn’t try to hide that by installing these updates, the users will run into very annoying stuff like apps crashing and blue screens appearing when they need them the least.

Avoid versions 1909, 2004, and 20H2 of Windows 10

1909, 2004, and 20H2 are the versions you should definitely avoid if you’re not a fan of blue screens and apps crashing. But the good news is that Microsoft is already working on a fix, which will probably arrive by the end of the first half of February.

One of the easiest methods of fixing the issues with KB4598299 or KB4598301 is to simply uninstall the updates. The process is simple, as you’ll only have to access your Control Panel > Uninstall a program > View installed updates. You’ll find the afore-mentioned updates on the next screen, and you’ll have to hit the uninstall option without hesitation.

One Windows 10 user wrote in a post via Feedback Hub, as cited by WindowsLatest:

In Visual Studio 2019, I performed the traditional window drag to relocate the Properties Window to be docked with the Solutions window [and] Visual Studio crashed. Uninstalling KB4598299 on both computers fixed the problem.

Whether people like to admit it or not, Windows 10 continues to have plenty of problems and faulty updates. Microsoft seems far from offering a perfect operating system, but of course, it’s never too late to change things.
