A pair of Windows 10 updates are causing the BSOD to appear

Two separate Windows 10 updates are causing PCs to see the “Blue Screen of Death” and crashing apps. According to a Visual Studio forum from Microsoft (via BetaNews), the KB4598299 and KB4598301 updates to Windows 10 are causing issues.

Those updates have been released to Windows 10 versions 1909, 2004, and 20H2 and were meant to address issues in .NET Framework 3.5 and 4.8. Unfortunately, they also contain problems that cause the Blue Screen of Death to appear.

One of the apps affected by this bug is Visual Studio, which is why Microsoft confirmed that a fix is on the way in a Visual Studio forum:

A fix for this issue has been internally implemented and is being prepared for release. We’ll update you once it becomes available for download.

There are also problems in Windows Presentation Foundation, which affects several apps on Windows 10.

Since the fix for the issue has already been implemented internally, it probably won’t be long until it’s released to everyone.

Some people on the Visual Studio forum have found workarounds, though we have not verified if they work at this time. Your safest bet is probably to uninstall the updates from any affected devices or to wait for a fix from Microsoft if you can.

We have a complete guide on how to uninstall and reinstall updates on Windows 10, including screenshots and step-by-step instructions if you need to uninstall the KB4598299 or KB4598301 updates.
