The Windows 10 May 2020 Update brought more problems than solutions. Users around the world are complaining about a new bug. A bug in Windows 10 that prevents you from using the internet. The error makes it impossible for some applications to connect to the internet. Therefore, the applications do not work. For example, Spotify.

Interestingly, the internet connection remains active. Users report two scenarios. In the first, the connectivity icon indicates no connection but they can browse. In the second, applications show connection failure but can browse.

The reason is that the link from Windows 10 to the server is broken. The link that indicates whether or not there is a connection at the system level. The Windows 10 software that asks for information about the computer’s connection. So it allows you to use certain browsers because there is an internet connection. But the apps linked to that API cannot connect. This causes some applications not to connect. However, the solution is simple:

  1. Search for ‘Registry Editor’, using the Windows taskbar search.
  2. Open the ‘Registry Editor’ and allow it to make changes.
  3. In the ‘Registry Editor’ go to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\SvcParameters
  4. Right click on ‘EnableActiveProbing’ and select ‘Edit’.
  5. Change the value from 0 to 1.
  6. Click ‘OK’ to close the menu and save the changes.
  7. Restart the computer.

Another alternative to open the registry editor is to type in Windows + R and type in Regedit. Then press ‘Enter’ and access the registry. Afterward, the user proceeds to look for the folder HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Internet. You then proceed to the next set of steps indicated in the first option.

Internet is not the only
Applications give out Internet connection error messages

Window in trouble: but that prevents using the Internet is not the only

As mentioned, the Windows 10 May 2020 Update brought more problems than solutions. In addition to the fact that the update prevents the use of the Internet, there are major problems. The main one is that, although we are finishing July, there are many users who have not been able to update. The difficulty arises because the service marks an unknown error and does not provide details to solve it.

The second is because both the Windows 10 2004 update (the May 2020 Update) and some subsequent patches have come with some errors. Consequently, the error mentioned in this post. And we’ll ask ourselves, why so many errors? Although the bugs in Windows 10 are not new.

The answer is that the source code of the operating system has many lines of code. This ensures a great compatibility with previous systems. However, the abundant lines of code complicate its manipulation. The process of upgrading or troubleshooting includes irremediably affecting another function. This is why the bug that prevents you from using the internet is the least of the problems. Microsoft responds to the passage of so many difficulties. While we wait for a solution to the multiple errors of this update, read our How to activate God mode in Windows 10.
