Windows 10 Will Automatically Uninstall Problematic Updates


Microsoft have added a new safety measure which will automatically uninstall any kinds of buggy software updates installed on your system if Windows 10 detects a startup failure either due to incompatibility or any issues in the software.

A new document published by Microsoft says that like Windows “automatically installs updates to keep your device secure and running at peak efficiency,” the OS will now run another automatic process to uninstall problematic updates.

In case you receive the following notification on your device it indicates that your Windows 10 computer has recently been recovered from a startup failure.

“We removed some recently installed updates to recover your device from a startup failure.”

When Windows 10 detects this, the operating system will try to resolve the failure by uninstalling recently installed Windows updates, which is only done when all automatic recovery attempts fail.

Besides this, if such issues happen, Windows 10 will automatically block installing any problematic updates for the next 30 days to ensure that your system can start up and continue running well.

Meanwhile, Microsoft and its partners can investigate regarding the issue and fix it before the update is again made available to the user after 30 days.

Those Windows 10 users who believe that the updates in question should not have been uninstalled, have the option to manually install driver or quality updates.

If those updates stop your system even after installing it automatically or manually then Windows will uninstall them again.

Microsoft asked Windows users to provide their feedbacks using the Feedback Hub which will help the company to diagnose and rectify the issues with these updates and fix it.

This new safety measure, is sure to help several Windows users to deal with problematic updates and the related issues.
