Does Win10 Update Reinstall Uninstalled Updates?


[link to this post]
 
I suspect a recent W10 update may have affected browsing a certain site. It's just a pattern but coincides for a bunch of users. So considering a test of uninstalling the update to see if issue goes away.

So will the auto imposed W10 Update get round eventually to putting the uninstalled update back?

That tool only seems to come up with a few updates, mostly drivers, no Win 10 updates at all.

Which browser? Edge?

All browsers as far as I can tell: IE, FF, Chrome. I always steer peeps away from Edge (they might fall over) 1st thing grin.

It is not affecting me smile but there seem to be a fair no. on Win 10 that it is.

Weird, not sure why a Windows Update would affect anything other than Edge or IE.

Have you got a link to a discussion on this?

Nor am I but it is just a pattern I , & no other, have noticed. I might be barking up the wrong tree but there seems to be no other logical explanation. The ISP say they are looking into it but have been for about a week. If it were affecting me I could understand it as one of those server outages that happen from time to time.

There are 10s of separate threads about it on the EE Community, e.g https://community.ee.co.uk/t5/EE-Home-Broadband/I-am... .

The user there says they are using Windows 7 not Windows 10.

Yes, sorry, I linked you to the largest thread but it happens to be Win 7.The majority of the others are Win 10. I know it is not conclusive but something must be common to these users. The server is not down as I can always get to it. Yet I'm on Win 10 and am not affected. It's just a pattern I observe, but not a perfect pattern.
