How to fix Windows 10 Update problems 2019

The Windows 10 May 2019 Update launched on May 22, and while Microsoft has gone to great lengths to try to make sure that this latest major update to Windows 10 is not plagued by the same level of problems that the October 2018 Update suffered, there have been some Windows 10 May 2019 Update problems spotted already.
So, we’ve gathered up all the Windows 10 2019 Update problems and fixes right here, so you don’t have to search the internet if your PC isn't behaving itself.

However, if you're suffering from a Windows 10 2019 Update problem that we haven’t covered, follow and tweet us and we’ll do what we can to find a solution. We’ll also continue to update this article with all the latest problems and fixes when we hear about them.




Fix Cortana (SearchUI.exe) high CPU usage in Windows 10 May 2019 Update

Microsoft recently released the Windows 10 KB4512941 update for the Windows 10 May 2019 Update, and while the update has brought a number of fixes, it appears it has also introduced a serious problem where some users are seeing incredibly high CPU usage after installing the update – which is caused by Cortana, Microsoft's voice assistant.

To fix the issue, open the Registry by pressing Windows + R on your keyboard and type in 'regedit'.

Open up 'HKEY_CURRENT_USER' then browse to \Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Search.


There, you’ll find a registry entry called 'BingSearchEnabled'. Select it, and set the 'Reg Value' to 0.

This will stop local search queries you perform on your PC being sent to Bing, Microsoft’s online search engine, which looks like the main cause of the high CPU usage issue.

You can also fix the issue by uninstalling the update by opening up Settings, clicking 'Update & Security', then click 'View update history'. Click 'Uninstall updates' then select the KB4512941 update and click 'Uninstall'.



Fix problems that stop Windows 10 May 2019 Update from finishing the install

There’s nothing more frustrating than seeing an update seemingly install without a problem, and then getting an error message at the last moment.
Some people are reporting that they're seeing ‘Error: We couldn't complete the updates. Undoing changes. Don't turn off your computer’ and ‘Error: Failure configuring Windows Updates. Reverting changes’ messages, which prevent Windows 10 2019 Update from finishing the install process.


You can check to see what went wrong by go to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update and clicking ‘Update history’.

This should show you any problems that were encountered. Make a note of these, then search the internet for a solution.


Fix corrupted ISO problems with Windows 10

If you're trying to install the Windows 10 2019 Update using an ISO file, and you've encountered an error numbered 0x8007025D - 0x2000C, then this means that the Windows 10 May 2019 Update might be corrupted.If this happens, try downloading the ISO file again, then run the Media Creation Tool again to create a bootable USB or DVD and try again.


Fix May 2019 Update 0x800F0922 error

If the Windows 10 2019 Update fails with an 0x800F0922 error, this may be because you have an active VPN connection that's interfering with Windows 10 contacting the update servers. To fix this issue, disconnect from the VPN server and try again.
If you don't know what a VPN (Virtual Private Network) is, then it means you probably don't have a connection, but check with your IT administrator.

This error can also occur if the System Reserved partition on your hard drive is full or not large enough. A third party software tool can help you resize your partition.


Disable anti-virus software

Antivirus software is certainly helpful to have, but it can sometimes cause problems when trying to install the Windows 10 2019 Update.

If you have antivirus software installed, try disabling that before trying to install the Windows 10 2019 Update, as that may fix the problem. You should then enable it and use it normally once the installation has completed.

You may even need to uninstall the software temporarily. Just make sure that you reinstall it once the update installs successfully.
