Microsoft's phone-screen mirroring beta hits Windows 10 this week

If a PC fails to start following a Windows 10 update and reboot, users may see a notification that reads: "We removed some recently installed updates to recover your device from a startup failure". Microsoft's convoluted update program is infamous for botched implementations, and its massive user base has grown tired of every little automatically installed patch.

To ensure that your device can start up and continue running as expected, Windows will also prevent problematic updates from installing automatically for the next 30 days. If this happens to you, you'll be greeted by the message: "We removed some recently installed updates to recover your device from a startup failure". Indeed, in a support page published yesterday and discovered by Windows Latest, the company explains that if Windows 10 detects that a recently installed update is causing serious problems on a PC such as startup failures, the OS will try to resolve it by uninstalling this update, though this will only be done as a last resort.

The uninstallation only occurs when all other automated attempts at fixing things have failed.

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

KB4482887 nearly certainly won't be the last Windows 10 update with problems, though.

Since ditching its Windows 10 Mobile efforts, Microsoft has been trying to offer a similar (or even a better) ecosystem by enabling Android to work with Windows 10. Microsoft says that this will give time for software developers to investigate what may have been causing the problems and then issue a fix.

Automatic recovery is great if it works and the new update removal option is certainly a welcome addition to the automatic recovery process. It mentions that the company regularly and automatically installs updates to make sure that your device remains secure and speedy.
