Download KB4598298 Offline Installer for Windows 10

KB4598298 fixes the spontaneous system restarts and crashes. Use these links to download KB4598298 offline installer for Windows 10 v1909.

Out of the blue, Microsoft released another update for Windows 10 v1909 users. This is a non-security and optional update that mainly fixes the recent unwarranted crashes and system restarts caused by another bug in the recent update. Generally, the update should be auto download and install on all affected and supported machines. However, being an optional update, it will not be auto-installed. As such, if your system is encountering random crashes or auto restarts, I recommend you install the update manually as soon as possible to fix the issue.

You can still install the update by clicking on the “Check for updates” button in the Settings app and then clicking on the Download link under the Optional Updates section. Alternatively, you can also download the KB4598298 offline installer and install it like any other software. This is very useful if the Windows Update is not working or to install the update on an offline machine. Do keep in mind that this update is only applicable to Windows 10 v1909. If you try to install the update in another version, the installation will fail.

This issue occurs after installing Windows updates from September 2020 and later.

These updates were released between November 10, 2020 and December 8, 2020.

  • Addresses an issue with HTTP caching that interferes with kiosk mode that targets Azure AD groups.

  • Addresses an issue with using Windows Defender Application Control (WDAC) and running a file while Managed Installer (MI) or Intelligent Security Graph (ISG) is enabled. You can now use fsutil to look for the $KERNEL.SMARTLOCKER.ORIGINCLAIM extended-attribute (EA) on a file. If this EA is present, then MI or ISG can run the file. You can use fsutil in conjunction with Enabling ISG and MI diagnostic events.

  • Addresses an issue that allows an app that has been blocked from hydrating files to continue hydrating files in some cases.

  • Addresses an issue that prevents access to a Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) snapshot of Resilient File System (ReFS) volumes for 30 minutes.

  • Adds a notification that tells you when your device is close to end of service (EOS). At EOS, your device will stop receiving important quality and security updates.

  • Addresses an issue with Administrative Template settings you configure using a Group Policy Object (GPO). When you change the value of the policy settings to NOT CONFIGURED, the system fails to remove the previous settings. This issue is most noticeable with roaming user profiles.

  • Addresses an issue that fails to show Extract all on the shortcut menu when you right-click an online-only ZIP file.

  • Updates the process for enrolling in online speech recognition. If you are already enrolled, you will see a message that asks you to review the new settings. If you choose not to contribute your speech data for human review, you can still use online speech recognition. The new settings contain one button to turn on online speech recognition and another button that turns on the collection of your voice clips. If you turn on the collection of your voice clips, you can turn it off at any time using the same button in the new settings page.

That is it.
