Microsoft is fixing a Windows 10 bug that causes forced reboots

Windows 10 random reboot

Microsoft is finally fixing an annoying Windows 10 bug that
causes a random reboot on some devices running the October 2020
Update. The tech giant has also removed the ‘compatibility
hold’, which should allow more users to install the upcoming
feature updates.

In November 2020, Microsoft confirmed that some of Windows 10’s
most recent updates result in critical problems with the Local
Security Authority Process for some configurations.

If your device is affected, Windows will start to randomly
reboot with a cryptic error message that states your “PC will
automatically restart”. You’ll have less than one minute to
save your work. It could lead to data loss if you don’t quickly
save any work you’ve open in the background.

Windows forced reboot

The good news is that the issue is rare and a fix is now
available, according to a new message posted to the support
document.

The documentation states
that the fix is bundled with the latest updates and users won’t
encounter the critical error as long as they’re using the most
recent version of Windows 10 version 20H2.

Microsoft has also lifted the upgrade block, which prevented
the October 2020 Update (version 20H2) from being offered on
some PCs. This move will also allow the tech giant to deliver
the next update codenamed ’21H1′ to more users.

In addition to the forced reboot bug, Microsoft has also
started rolling out a
fix for an issue that deletes your passwords. When this
happens, Windows will automatically delete your login sessions
in apps and websites after rebooting your computer.

Anyone suffering from authentication and browser cookies
problem will be hoping that the resolution comes soon. However,
Microsoft has clarified that it’s still testing the fix with
Windows Insiders and the patch will begin rolling out to the
general public soon.
