Microsoft to automatically remove botched updates

Windows 10 will start automatically removing problem-causing updates

Back when Windows XP was reaching the end of its life-cycle, Microsoft introduced the "nag" screen which was a popup that informed the user that the OS needed to be updated to Windows 7. "Occasionally, these updates can fail due to incompatibility or issues in new software", the document adds.

Why it matters: Microsoft puts out constant updates for Windows 10, and there's a good chance you've installed some that introduce problems to a system. Once you have your Android device set up, the Windows app will show a list of your installed Android apps. In addition to this action, Windows will prevent problematic updates from installing automatically for the next 30 days - giving time for Microsoft to update its updates...

As reported by Hexus, Microsoft is working on a fix for this issue, but suggests that anyone impacted too negatively by the update to uninstall it for now while a patch is developed.

You can download the Your Phone app now on Google Play and the Windows Store. In the future, Windows 10 users will also be able to enjoy Android apps on their laptops and desktops, as Microsoft has started testing the Your Phone feature it first teased a few months ago. Now Windows will go a step further to help users out of an update pickle. After this period the iffy update (or hopefully a revised version of it) will be feature among the recommended updates again.

"These notifications are created to help provide information only and if you would prefer not to receive them again, you'll be able to select an option for 'do not notify me again, ' and we will not send you any further reminders", Barlow wrote.
