Microsoft has addressed this issue by adding a safety measure that would from now onward automatically uninstall buggy software updates installed on your system if Windows 10 detects a startup failure.
A new document published by Microsoft, a day before this month’s Patch Tuesday, says just like Windows “automatically installs updates to keep your device secure and running at peak efficiency,” the OS will now run another automatic process to uninstall problematic updates.
From now on, if you receive the following notification on your device, that means your Windows 10 computer has recently been recovered from a startup failure.
“We removed some recently installed updates to recover your device from a startup failure.”
Besides this, if such issues happen, Windows 10 will automatically block installation of the problematic updates for the next 30 days to ensure that your system can start up and continue running just fine.
Also in the meantime, Microsoft and its partners can investigate the issue and fix it before the update is delivered to the user again after 30 days.
For Windows 10 users who believe that the updates in question should not have been uninstalled, Microsoft allows them to manually install driver or quality updates.
