        Hi Team!

        Just to let you know. After updating about 20 Windows 10 computers with 20H2 update (KB4592438) two computers lost all its applications. So the failure rate is about 10%. The only way to fix it – roll back to the previous version via Settings\Recovery. Looks like this particular update has some issues.

        Do you have any third party security software installed? Also was it a missing/changed profile rather than true loss of applications?

        We use BitDefender as our endpoint security app. It feels like the registry is getting wiped/corrupted. I was unable to see any apps installed under any (user or admin) profile. The profile itself was ok, as a user was able to see all files and shortcuts, but nothing worked.
