UPDATE: Microsoft pulled KB4467682 from Windows Update and the Microsoft Update Catalog following numerous BSOD reports.

After installing this optional update some users have reported getting a blue or black screen with error code, “System thread exception not handled.” As a precaution, we have removed this optional update from Windows Update and Microsoft Update Catalog to protect customers.

You can read the original report below.


Windows 10 KB4467682 is an interesting update — to say the least. Microsoft has rolled it out four times up until now, and if we’re lucky, we may even get to see a fifth release.

If you haven’t installed this patch on your Windows 10 v1809 computer yet, consider yourself lucky. While this update packs many useful fixes, it also brings issues of its own. The most severe one includes the annoying Blue Screen of Death.

Unfortunately, this is not the only problem affecting users who downloaded KB4467682.

KB4467682 reported issues

BSOD errors

The good news is that Microsoft has officially acknowledged this bug. In other words, the BSOD issue caused by KB4467682  is now a top priority for Microsoft. The company’s engineers are working to develop a hotfix which will hopefully be ready by next week.

After installing this optional update some users may get a blue or black screen with error code, “System thread exception not handled.” For customers who are currently experiencing this issue, please follow these instructions Troubleshoot blue screen errors and uninstall KB4467682.

Microsoft also temporarily blocked this update for Surface Book 2 users. The patch will be available again for all Surface Book owners when Microsoft releases the December 2018 security update.

 Run as administrator doesn’t work

Launching a program or opening a file or folder as an administrator doesn’t work for some users. The only solution to fix this problem is to simply uninstall the update.

After the update, if you are logged in as a regular user and attempt running a file as an administrator by right-clicking on it, it does not prompt for admin credentials and does not allow running the file as an admin.
Uninstalling the KB4467682 update and rebooting returns “run as administrator” functionality.

KB4467682 bricks local user profile

There’s another issue that affected quite a few users. More specifically, the local user profile is completely broken.

I installed KB4467682 (OS Build 17134.441) and had to restore from backup, it destroyed my local user profile. I was unable to get it to allow a restore to last known good configuration

All in all, KB4467682 is not as buggy as other Windows 10 updates. Of course, Microsoft still needs to tweak the code a bit but we’re sure its engineers will get the job done by December Patch Tuesday.
