Windows 10 will start automatically removing problem-causing updates

March 2019 Patch Tuesday New Windows patch might make some games perform worse
Melba Vasquez | 12 March, 2019, 17:15

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.

In a recently published support document, Microsoft explains that Windows may attempt to roll back recently downloaded updates in the event of startup failure. "Occasionally, these updates can fail due to incompatibility or issues in new software", the document adds.

Rather than leaving it down to users to seek out the problematic update and uninstall it, Windows 10 could start to automatically uninstall updates that have caused issues. As a matter of fact, Microsoft acknowledged last week some gaming performance issues with the latest patch for Windows 10 version 1809, recommending users to uninstall it.

Windows 10 build 18351, which was originally released to Fast ring insiders on March 5, is now available for the Slow ring too, but this time it also comes with a cumulative update that brings one fix.

We've all been through this dejecting situation; and as it turns out, you could be experiencing it again if you update your system to the latest OS update from Microsoft. This will give Microsoft and our partners the opportunity to investigate the failure and fix any issues.

If you stopped Windows 10 from automatically install system updates on your PC, you're probably not alone.

Once the update has been uninstalled, Windows 10 will also prevent such problematic updates from re-installing automatically for the next 30 days - after which, it will again try to automatically install the update.

The update will bring several major changes, including Windows Sandbox to run applications in a secure environment similar to virtual machines.
