Windows 10 Can Now Automatically Roll Back Faulty Updates

As described by Microsoft, the Windows Update Catalog is created to provide updates for all now supported operating systems, providing users with access to device drivers, hotfixes, updated system files, service packs, and new Windows features downloads.

We removed some recently installed updates to recover your device from a startup failure.

Microsoft has said that Windows 10 will start removing installed Windows Updates that cause problems in starting or running your device at peak efficiency.

Indeed, in a support page published yesterday and discovered by Windows Latest, the company explains that if Windows 10 detects that a recently installed update is causing serious problems on a PC such as startup failures, the OS will try to resolve it by uninstalling this update, though this will only be done as a last resort.

Users can also help Redmond fix issues with problematic Windows updates by submitting their feedback with the help of the Feedback Hub app.

Once an update has been removed, Windows 10 will prevent it from installing automatically for the next 30 days, giving Microsoft and its partners time to investigate and hopefully fix any issues.

This new feature is welcome, as the general advice for people who are experiencing problems after installing an update is to uninstall the update to see if that fixes things. The company explains that "this is only done when all other automatic recovery attempts have been unsuccessful". At the end of the period, Windows will try to install the updates again.

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.

In case you like living life on the edge, you can still download the updates manually by using the link given in the support document.
