A new feature will roll back the installation of an error occurs.
Let’s be honest: no one likes Windows Update. Unfortunately, it’s not something that you can easily ignore since this is one way Microsoft can keep your system secure from the millions of vulnerabilities that can infiltrate your computer. While that Windows Update pop-up is already annoying enough, sometimes your computer will randomly restart to install the patches and if you’re unlucky, that installation might even break your computer.
The good news is that Microsoft has introduced a new feature that can smartly roll back a previous working installation just in case your computer suffers a boot failure because of the update. Additionally, Windows Update can also block that particular update for 30 days which should be enough for Microsoft to issue a fix so that it can be installed without any hiccups.
While it doesn’t completely solve our annoyance with Windows Update, it’s good to know that even if Microsoft forces the update on your Windows 10 PC, there’s a good chance that will still work properly just in case an error occurs.
It wasn’t made clear though if the new Windows Update feature will be applicable to the weekly Tuesday patches or the major Windows 10 upgrades.
