Microsoft Pulls Windows 10 October 2018 Update

The company has temporarily pulled the Windows 10 October 2018 Update after reports the new software deleted some users' files.

"We will provide an update when we resume rolling out the Windows 10 October 2018 Update to customers", the post added. The Malaysian contact number is 1 800 81 8798, or you could talk to the virtual assistant on the support page here.

According to several users, the new update for the tech giant Microsoft's latest operating system, of course, Windows 10 is causing problems.

However, the biggest problem has been with the deletion of user files located in the C:/Users/[username]/Documents/ folder.

Importantly users should use the Recuva software before trying to roll back or do anything else, as this may overwrite the deleted files.

Melania Trump ends Africa tour, says 'glad Kavanaugh accuser been heard'
As well as the national park, she visited an orphanage and watched a children's performance at the city's national theatre. She has faced a wellspring of criticism for that particular effort in light of the president's often vitriolic tweets.

And a complaint on Microsoft's support forum highlights an even worse scenario than that, with 220GB of files vanishing (over two decades worth).

The addition of a "clipboard history" will allow you to access multiple items from your clipboard instead of just the last item copied (Windows Logo key + V).

Microsoft has not commented on this bug publicly as of writing, but with any luck, they'll make a statement confirming the issue in the near future. In the meantime, Microsoft advises anyone who has manually downloaded the update, but hasn't yet installed it, to wait until the next update becomes available before installing. Since the Windows 10 October Update rolled out a handful of other bugs have also been discovered, including a compatibility issue with some Intel device drivers and inaccurate CPU usage numbers in the Task Manager. Here are some of the new capabilities you can expect in this surprisingly feature-packed release.

Personally, I've disabled Windows Update entirely until this issue gets resolved, and it's probably best for you to do the same; temporarily, of course.
