Using a desktop computer, as well as a laptop, involves having the right operating system. This is most often Windows. Manufacturers of such software often introduce various updates that are installed automatically by computers after they have been downloaded. Their purpose is to improve functionality and eliminate various bugs. Sometimes, however, such updates can cause additional faults.
There are various causes of problems caused by Windows updates. One of the simplest solutions for those with patience is to wait for further updates and patches to appear to fix such a bug. These are downloaded and installed automatically. Sometimes, however, you have to wait even for a few days for such a solution.
Another option is to look for a solution on the web. While waiting for a patch or update, it is a good idea to look for information and advice on the Internet. It may be possible to work around the problem temporarily so that you can use your computer while waiting for a permanent solution in the form of another update.
Remove the problematic update. In some (but unfortunately not all) cases, it is possible to undo an update. If you go to Control Panel – Programs – Programs and Features – View installed updates, you can view a list of currently used updates. Find the problematic update, right-click on it and select the “Uninstall” option.
Alternatively, select Start – Update and Security – Recovery – Go back to the previous version of Windows 10. Another recovery option is to restore the system to a suitable state before the update by using either a previously saved restore point or a backup.
There are many reasons why updates adversely affect the system, but Microsoft does not fully explain them. It is important to bear in mind that the number of hardware and software configurations of computers around the world is huge. This means that in one case an update will actually help, while on another computer it will cause problems. This is why it is important to have information about the hardware configuration and installed programmes when performing diagnostics.
Incorrect Windows updates can lead to the appearance of various problems. Here are some common examples:
If such problems arise, it is a good idea to check the information available on the web. The most sensible option, however, is to use the services of professional service providers who will effectively diagnose and solve specific problems.
