    Windows 10 KB4540673 causes BSOD and other issues


    The major and monthly updates to Windows 10 can be a headache for some people. From the infamous blue screen of death errors, installation issues, reduced performance, and data deletion bugs, installing Windows update isn’t a seamless process for everyone.

    Windows 10 KB4540673 is the latest update and it was released on March 10 with security fixes. The March Patch Tuesday update is a low-key release and there are not too many changes, but it appears that the patch is still causing a series of problems for some people.

    The most recent cumulative update for the Windows 10 version 1909 and 1903 is causing the blue screen of death on some devices, according to user reports. Only a small subset of consumers appear to be impacted, but the number of reports is growing.

    Concerns over Windows 10 KB4540673 cumulative update were documented in our comments section and other forums.

    “After installing it I started having BSOD every time I started my PC.
    Only solution I had was rolling back to a previous restore points of some days ago.,” explained post author in our comments.

    “This March update installed automatically on my devices and it leads to BSOD errors on my gaming PC and my work laptop,” another user wrote.

    These user reports suggest that the issue is only due to compatibility issues with KB4540673.

    As we noted, consumers in other forums also reported seeing the issue with Windows 10’s newest patch. A discussion on Reddit also confirms the issue happens on some devices. For example, as one Redditor notes:

    “Not sure if this is the same problem given mine auto-updated to KB4540673 (not KB4535996), but after the update my desktop PC was hanging on the BIOS/UEFI loading screen. I couldn’t get past POST to even attempt booting into Windows or Safe Mode”.

    “Installed KB4540673 today got blue screen while playing CS:GO,” another user noted.

    “In all fairness, as annoyed as I am that my laptop is completely crashed right now over this update,” one poster noted in Microsoft’s forums.

    Windows 10 KB4540673 problems


    Some users have also claimed that this update could take a really long time to install, while others have reported installation issues.

    “It doesn’t install here. It restarts and says that the update wasn’t installed,” a reader told us.

    “I have the same issue. Only mine doesn’t go far as 1% and it won’t allow the other updates to download so I really don’t know what to do. Like I’ve had my PC opened all day and is still 1% not gone up at all,” a user wrote.

    One user also claimed that this patch once again causes a temporary user profile bug.

    It is worth noting that only a subset of users with unknown PC configuration reported these problems and it’s unclear just how widespread this issue is.

    Microsoft has yet to officially acknowledge a comment on these user reports. It probably will be best to create a system restore point and backup in order to avoid getting troubled by any updates.

    You should only uninstall a patch if it broke something on your device. If the patch is installed and your PC is running smoothly, no actions are required from your end.

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

  3. New install Windows 10 (issue solved)

    It's good that you're not experiencing any issues. Unfortunately many folks are, a quick Google search will show the same info im offering the OP.

    Heres a couple examples:

    Here

    Here

    It's basically what I mentioned above, small issues here and there ,but nothing to end your day.. for the most part.

    I know it's anecdotal, but for my experience 95% of the time it's perfectly fine. The issues I've run into wouldn't be enough for me to roll back , but they would be enough (had I not installed it yet) ,to avoid it for another couple weeks which is why I'm suggesting it to the OP

    Windows 10 KB4540673 causes BSOD and other issues

    Random BSOD while browsing internet


    BitDefender is nothing special. mwac.sys causes BSODs anywhere.
    A tiny documentation can be found here: Solved Random BSODs - Windows 10 Forums
    In that very thread, the suggested action apparently worked.

    The storage and network filters of any third party antivirus can cause BSODs. Neither MBAM nor BitDefender is any special. For a regular antivirus, it may be shifted to an alternative; but MBAM has no alternative. So a clean install of the said program is the most feasible first step.
    As far as the first step is not failing, it is better to not think for the second step. Because the BSODs are not universal, failure at the first step is not universal; and success at the second step is also not universal.
    That is why I posted that my suggestion may work, or may not. Let us see where it goes.
