Do you always think twice before installing Windows updates worrying that it could crash your system or leave it non-working the day after Patch Tuesdays?

Don’t worry.

Microsoft has addressed this issue by adding a safety measure that would from now onwards automatically uninstall buggy software updates installed on your system if Windows 10 detects a startup failure, which could be due to incompatibility or issues in new software.

A new document published by Microsoft on Monday, a day before this month’s Patch Tuesday, says just like Windows “automatically installs updates to keep your device secure and running at peak efficiency,” the OS will now run another automatic process to uninstall problematic updates.

From now on, if you receive the following notification on your device, that means your Windows 10 computer has recently been recovered from a startup failure,first sighted by Windows Latest blog.

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

If Windows 10 detects this, the operating system will try to resolve the failure by uninstalling recently installed Windows updates, which is only done when all automatic recovery attempts fail.
