It seems the latest round of Windows 10 updates causes the system to crash when printing.

According to reports from the field, the Windows 10 KB5000802 and KB5000808 cumulative updates released this week are causing crashes when printing to network printers.

Tuesday was Microsoft’s March 2021 update Tuesday. With that update, Microsoft fixed 82 vulnerabilities, with 10 classified as Critical and 72 as Important. The update patched two zero-day vulnerabilities that hackers were using in openly publicized attacks.

None of those fixes included the 7 Microsoft Exchange and 33 Chromium Edge vulnerabilities released earlier this month.

The Blue Screen of Death when printing on a network

The Windows 10 KB5000802 and KB5000808 cumulative updates released yesterday are causing Blue Screen of Death crashes when printing to network printers.

Since then, there has been a constant stream of complaints that printing is causing Windows 10 to crash with an “APC_INDEX_MISMATCH for win32kfull.sys” blue screen of death crash.

According to posts by system administrators on Reddit, the Windows 10 crashes began immediately when users tried to print after installing the KB5000802 and KB5000808 updates. Kyocera, Ricoh, and Dymo are some of the printer brands crashing.

Microsoft has pulled the updates from Windows Update while they look into the issues.
