Microsoft pauses Windows 10 October update after users' complaints

Users who still use this application to clean and optimize Windows have started complaining that, after upgrading to Windows 10 October 2018 Update, Ccleaner has stopped working correctly. According to some reports, the system rollback did not help: the missing files were not recovered.

Roll back from Windows 10 version October 2018 Update to an earlier version does not help - the missing files are not restored back to great for many.

However, the biggest problem has been with the deletion of user files located in the C:/Users/[username]/Documents/ folder. Dubbed for October update, there are many new features that include tons of security enhancements for the entire operating system.

Apparently, such incidents had been reported by the testers of Windows 10 update (version 1809).

"I just updated (Windows - Approx.Ed.) and there is no problem". This bug is sure to raise new doubts about Microsoft's testing, pace of delivering updates, and dependence on the Insider Program to find and report such problems. The issue also doesn't seem to be affecting every user that upgrades to the October 2018 Update, making it increasingly hard for Microsoft to mitigate the problem. "This is unbelievable, I have been using Microsoft products since 1995 and nothing like that ever happened to me", a user wrote on Microsoft's support forum.

Microsoft has already rolled out the updated Windows 10 IoT solutions to customers including Rockwell Automation, Redback Technologies, and Johnson Controls, the post noted. Unfortunately, not every Windows 10 user is experiencing that kind of smooth sailing after the upgrade to build 1809.

Following widespread reporting of these issues, Microsoft has now pulled the Windows 10 October 2018 Update from circulation.
