Windows 10 Fall Update Removes Apps and Drivers At Will!

/ 3 years ago

Updates are supposed to fix issues or add new features, but it looks like Microsoft is going the other way with their big Fall update for Windows 10. Okay, this is probably not intended but it is what’s happening. The thread about it on Reddit is growing steadily with users reporting not only apps disappearing, but also important drivers such as Intel RST that effectively can render your installation useless.

Among the applications being reported automatically uninstalled are popular monitor tools such as CPU-Z and HW-Monitor, but Piriform’s Speccy is also affected and being uninstalled just as Spybot and several VPN-Clients. These tools, except the VPN client, are minor and can quickly be reinstalled, but something as important as RAID drivers should never ever just be uninstalled by an update.

I’m pretty sure that this is a temporary issue, but Microsoft has yet to officially acknowledge the issues with Windows 10 version 1511. This also means that you might want to hold off updating your system with the latest patches if you’re one of the millions that already made the switch to Windows 10.

Have you experienced any trouble yourself with the newest update or are you happy with Microsoft latest operating system. Let us know in the comments.

    Problem with Intel based tablets front camera/internal audio speakers. Problem with rotating display (display upside down on rotating tablet). “Settings -> System” randomly freezes after pressing. These are my first problems after upgrade from Win 10 10240 and after clean installation on Intel based tablets exam. GoClever Insignia 800 Win.

    I have win 10 build:10586, Never had issues except one, the File Permissions & ownership which changes all my files & folders into “Read-Only” Mode and disabling authorization even though your the Administrator of the PC. Such headaches.

      That would explain why I couldn’t drop some files into my C drive… Looks like I’m going to have to fight for permissions on my PC again! x_x

    Yeah the Cisco legacy VPN (Yellow Lock) client is a big issue. Tons of companies have been too lazy to replace it even after it’s been EOL for years.
