Windows 10 will automatically uninstall problematic updates

The notifications are supposed to make you aware that the end of support is approaching

However, a new support document outlines the company's latest plan to have your PC remove troublesome updates all on its own.

The removal of updates is not something that Microsoft takes lightly. This will give Microsoft and our partners the opportunity to investigate the failure and fix any issues. If something does go wrong, Windows will boot up the device and uninstall Windows Update.

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".

If you run Windows 10 and love to install the latest updates as soon as they become available, you must be aware of the series of issues being caused by buggy Windows 10 updates.

Microsoft does allow users to manually install updates if they think that the rollback was a mistake or if Microsoft fixes the issue before the 30 day period is over. Cumulative update KB4482887 to the so-called Windows 10 October 2018 Update was found to cause frame rate issues, mouse input lag, and other problems in numerous games.

Microsoft has quietly updated a support document to let us know that Windows 10 will have a crack at uninstalling borked updates - just in time for patch Tuesday.

Once an update has been removed, Windows will not attempt to reinstall it for another 30 days.

The new option may resolve some issues automatically but it certainly is not a catch-all option that recovery any issue that is update related.

Microsoft are now working on a fix for the issue, so we suggest holding out on updating your system until we get the "all clear".

One thing Clark doesn't mention is any effort by Microsoft to ease the transition to Windows 10 by making the upgrade free again.
