Windows 10 now automatically recovers from bollixed updates

Whether you love or hate Microsoft's automatic updates for Windows 10, it's a given you'll run into a snag at some point. To deal with the inevitable botched installs before you start angry tweeting, Microsoft's added a new capability to Windows 10 that makes it automatically uninstall any update that's preceded a failed startup.

It will also delay reinstalling the updates for 30 days to give Microsoft time to diagnose the issues before trying again. The relevant updates include drivers, hotfixes, changes to system files, service packs and new features. Microsoft issued a brief support note to address this new behavior in case you experience it.
