Windows 10 now automatically recovers from bollixed updates

New Windows patch might make some games perform worse

Microsoft recently added a new support page which details an interesting - if not critical - feature involving its software updates.

If a PC fails to start following a Windows 10 update and reboot, users may see a notification that reads: "We removed some recently installed updates to recover your device from a startup failure".

It will also delay reinstalling the updates for 30 days to give Microsoft time to diagnose the issues before trying again.

The company writes that these updates and patches "keep your device secure and running at peak efficiency", but they occasionally run into incompatibility issues.

As reported by Hexus, Microsoft is working on a fix for this issue, but suggests that anyone impacted too negatively by the update to uninstall it for now while a patch is developed.

Once the update has been uninstalled, Windows 10 will also prevent such problematic updates from re-installing automatically for the next 30 days - after which, it will again try to automatically install the update.

Durant injures ankle as Warriors stunned by Suns at home
The Phoenix Suns are averaging 106.2 points on 45.7 percent shooting and allowing 116.2 points on 48.4 percent shooting. Golden State struggled nearly across the board in this game, with a few single performances being the exception.


This new feature is welcome, as the general advice for people who are experiencing problems after installing an update is to uninstall the update to see if that fixes things. Many Windows 10 users will have experienced startup problems after installing an update to the operating system, and this is something that Microsoft is looking to address.

Uninstalling a buggy patch that has been automatically installed on a PC is something Windows 10 users should never have to do, and it seems Microsoft finally agrees.

The company will attempt to investigate and fix the issue alongside its partners within a 30-days period.

Gartner analyst Michael Ramsey called the move "startling" and said it undermines the credibility of Musk and Tesla's management. The company hasn't yet clarified why it partly reversed its initial decision, but Engadget has reached out for more information.


Automatic recovery is great if it works and the new update removal option is certainly a welcome addition to the automatic recovery process.
