The Windows 10 May 2020 Update is still a massive mess for some users. It has caused minor as well as major PC issues so far, from audio and Bluetooth bugs to install failure.

Also, it seems that the bug can affect your gaming experience by tampering with video frame rates, according to users’ concerns shared on Reddit.

The latest complaints about this bug are coming from users that recently updated to Windows 10 version 2004.

As for the internet connectivity issue, Microsoft acknowledged it on the TechNet forum. In addition, the Redmond-based company said it had launched an investigation.

 Customers are reporting “no internet” access in the Network Connectivity Status Indicator (NCSI) on Windows 10 2004 devices on devices that in fact can ping internet resources or browse web sites with internet browsers.

The no internet bug is a false alarm anyway, so affected Windows 10 users are still able to connect to the internet.
