If your computer runs into Windows problems and automatic
recovery attempts are unsuccessful, Windows 10 will now
automatically remove the botched updates.
In a new support document, Microsoft has now detailed an
interesting functionality where Windows 10 will automatically
remove the installed updates to fix the startup issues and
other bugs preventing PC from booting.
The support document was
quietly published a couple of hours ago and for some
reasons, Microsoft has also blocked the search engines from
crawling or indexing the page. In the document, Microsoft
explains that Windows may automatically install updates in
order to keep your device secure and smooth.
Due to various reasons, including software and driver
compatibility issues, Windows Updates are vulnerable to
mistakes and hardware errors. In some cases, Windows Update may
fail to install.
After installing a recent update, if your PC experience startup
failures and automatic recovery attempts are unsuccessful,
Windows may try to resolve the failure by uninstalling
recently installed updates. In this case, users may receive a
notification with the following message:
“We removed some recently installed updates to recover your
device from a startup failure,” the message reads.
Microsoft says that Windows will also automatically block the
problematic updates from installing automatically for the next
30 days. During these 30 days, Microsoft and its partners will
investigate the failure and attempt to fix the issues. When the
issues are fixed, Windows will again try to install the
“To ensure that your device can start up and continue running
as expected, Windows will also prevent problematic updates from
installing automatically for the next 30 days. This will give
Microsoft and our partners the opportunity to investigate the
failure and fix any issues. After 30 days, Windows will again
try to install the updates,” Microsoft explains.
Users still have the freedom to reinstall the updates. If you
believe that the update should not be removed, you can manually
reinstall the driver or quality updates which were uninstalled
