Windows 10 Will Automatically Remove Problematic Updates


 Why were recently installed updates removed?


If Windows Updates fail due to incompatibility with hardware or software, you may see: "We removed some recently installed updates to recover your device from a startup failure."

To ensure that a device can start and continue running as it should, Windows may prevent problematic updates from installing automatically so that engineers can work on fixes. If you would like to help Microsoft diagnose and correct issues with these updates, please submit a report via the Feedback Hub. The more details provided, the better.

In most cases these updates will be remediated and offered again in 30 days.
