Windows 10 Fall Update Removes Apps and Drivers At Will!

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.
