I have KB5000802 installed but didn't get offered KB5000808 and doesn't appear in my installed updates.

I have done a few prints and no issue with my Epson Stylus Office BX635FWD, but I don't know what the "when printing in win32kfull.sys" bit is about, or if my printer even uses this driver.

Amazing to see so many posts about a printer problem caused by MS
It's also amazing that I really haven't seen any complaints on the forum about this "problem"
I know I'm not having any problems with my printer.

Given all of the other comments about issues in this link, not to mention being optional:

Microsoft has released the KB5000842 non-security preview update for all editions of Windows 10, version 20H2, and Windows 10, version 2004, with fixes for system freezing and activation issues.

After installing this cumulative update, you may experience issues with the system and user certificates getting lost if updating from Windows 10 1809 or later versions using outdated install media.

Not to mention it is considered a preview (doest this mean pre-release, I don't know):

With the KB5000842 monthly release preview update, Microsoft addresses an issue that might cause systems running Windows 10 2004 to stop responding during hybrid shutdowns.

This is enough for me NOT to install this optional update.

For me the two words optional and preview were enough for me to wait until the time it isn't optional nor a preview. 

I will let others test drive it and find the problems (if any) and wait for them to be fixed and released as a normal WU.

More details Direct download
You don't have to be an Insider to use this. You do need to use a 64 bit OS
This can be installed directly over the existing 32 bit installation if you're currently using OneDrive 32 bit.

Anyone else finding System is using a lot of CPU since the last win10 cumulative update - April 13, 2021—KB5001330 (OS Builds 19041.928 and 19042.928)

I'm seeing it high 20 to low 30% CPU usage, I can't recall it ever being this high unless there was an update or something going on in the background.

I checked Windows Update and last check earlier today, but nothing installed or pending installation, I will keep monitoring and see if it stops.
