New Windows 10 KB5006670 update breaks network printing

  • October 15, 2021


Windows 10 users and administrators report widescale network printing issues after installing the KB5006670 cumulative update and other updates released this week.

On Tuesday, Microsoft released Windows updates to fix bugs and security vulnerabilities as part of the October 2021 Patch Tuesday.

These updates include KB5006674 for Windows 11, KB5006670 for Windows 10 2004, 20H1, and 21H1, KB5006667 for Windows 10 1909, and KB5006714 for Windows 8.

Since installing the KB5006670 update, users are reporting that they cannot print to network print servers, with some users receiving 0x00000709 or 'Element not found' errors when attempting to print.

In an eight-page forum topic at BleepingComputer, Windows administrators recounted their frustration with the printing bugs and came to the same conclusion — uninstalling this week's updates resolves the problem.

Since July, Microsoft has been releasing a constant stream of security updates to fix the PrintNightmare vulnerabilities in the Windows Print Spooler.
