Affected Builds

This issue affects Windows 10 2004 with build 19041.610 and 19042.610.

Workaround

The only workaround currently is to remove this update.

Caveat

Although this is a “preview” update and an optional installation, it is important to know that preview updates are released in the next “patch Tuesday” release. Administrators are advised to carefully consider delaying the implementation until additional testing has been completed.
