Microsoft resumes the KB5039302 rollout for Windows 11 23H2/22H2

Microsoft is again rolling out the infamous KB5039302 for Windows 11, versions 22H2 and 23H2. The company notes that on devices that run virtual machines the patch can cause a reboot loop, so such devices will be no longer offered to receive this update.

The company noted:

vailability of this update via Windows Update and Windows Update for Business was paused for a couple of days, but is being resumed today for most devices. This update offering is now paused only for devices affected by the issue. As a result, this update might not be offered to Hyper-V virtual machines running on hosts that utilize certain processor types.

Another note is that KB5039302 can cause taskbar and File Explorer freezes. This issue only affects N editions and systems with Media Features disabled. Enabling the media components resolves the issue. See the updated official post.

The company previously paused the rollout of the KB5039302 update due to several reports on the endless reboots issue.
