Windows users have a love-hate relationship with Windows Updates. This is mainly because they keep running into issues after installing updates. It looks like Microsoft has also taken note of the issue and has added a safety measure for the same.
According to a new document published by Microsoft (via Windows Latest), Windows will now automatically uninstall updates if a user runs into startup issues. Due to the sheer number of devices running on Windows, it’ important to have a safety mechanism in place for when things go wrong. If something does go wrong, Windows will boot up the device and uninstall Windows Update.
Not only that, if this happens, Windows will automatically block Updates for the next 30 days so Microsoft can investigate and fix the issue before the update is delivered to the user again.
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 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. Lastly, Microsoft also asked users to share Feedback using the Feedback Hub so the company can take a look at the diagnostic data and work on the fix accordingly.
