A patch numbered KB5000802 resulted in crashes on some systems when users tried to use a network printer. The issue affected Windows 10 version 20H2 and also the Windows 10 version 1909 release (via the KB5000808 update). Affected printers included models from Kyocera, Ricoh, Zebra, and other companies.
