Windows 10 will now automatically uninstall borked updates

Microsoft’s hated desktop notifications are coming back to Windows 7

According to a new document published by Microsoft (via Windows Latest), Windows will now automatically uninstall updates if a user runs into startup issues. If Windows detects this, it will try to resolve the failure by uninstalling recently installed updates. A new support article shows that Microsoft plans to implement the opposite feature: a tool that automatically deletes (some) updates. The notifications won't pollute your Action Center and dismissing them in the app will also dismiss them on the connected Windows 10 devices.

Windows users have a love-hate relationship with Windows Updates.

That seems like good timing on Microsoft's part.

If the uninstall process is triggered, the operating system will not attempt to reinstall the rogue update for at least 30 days, with Microsoft explaining that: "This will give Microsoft and our partners the opportunity to investigate the failure and fix any issues". We suspect that many people would prefer not to install this update until it's fixed.

Paul George fined $25K for criticizing officials
In the two games against Western Conference foes, Oklahoma City has sent their opponents to the line a whopping 93 times combined. This video got around to Beverley, who made a decision to use his Twitter account to rub George's rough night in one more time.

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

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. Of course, if you can't wait that long, you can manually force the updates to be installed.

In the ongoing saga of trying to mitigate the potential problems caused by speculative execution exploits like Spectre and Meltdown (and the fixes to those fixes) Microsoft has a new Windows patch called KB4482887. Better to find a way to remove those updates than just to let them lie.
