Windows Update will now automatically uninstall problematic patches and drivers.
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 looks like Microsoft has also taken note of the issue and has added a safety measure for the same.
Windows 10 endures enjoys a near constant stream of updates and patches to, as Microsoft put it, "keep your device secure and running at peak efficiency". Microsoft says that this will give time for software developers to investigate what may have been causing the problems and then issue a fix. At the end of the period, Windows will try to install the updates again.
By the way, Microsoft will release new "Patch Tuesday" updates for all supported versions of Windows 10 later today, so stay tuned to OnMSFT if you want to get all the details about these new patches.
If you stopped Windows 10 from automatically install system updates on your PC, you're probably not alone. 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.
So, you've spent your life savings on a mammoth rig; everything runs butter-smooth; and bam, you're hit with a crippling Windows 10 update that brings your gaming performance to a crawl.
Automatic recovery is great if it works and the new update removal option is certainly a welcome addition to the automatic recovery process.
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".
