    How to Roll Back or Uninstall a Problematic Windows Update

    Barely a month had passed after we told you to let Windows Update automatically keep your PC updated before Microsoft decided to make us look bad by releasing a couple of really bad updates that broke people’s computers. So today we’re going to show you how to roll things back should an update break everything.

    We’re not backing off our opinion that keeping Windows updated automatically is the best policy, and it’s still very unlikely that you’re going to be affected by another bad update, but since lightning sometimes does strike twice, it’s better to know how to recover just in case.

    The First Step: Boot into Safe Mode


    Whenever you are making system changes to fix a problem, you’ll need to get into Safe Mode to make those changes happen. This is a special mode of Windows that doesn’t load anything extra other than what Windows needs to boot.

    Normally you can just use the F8 key to get into the boot menu and switch to Safe Mode, but Windows 8 and 10 make this more difficult, so you’ll need to hold the Shift key while clicking Restart to get to the boot menu, and then go through a bunch of other steps.
