Microsoft Pulls Security Update Breaking Down Windows 10
KB4524244 was published by Microsoft on Patch Tuesday to resolve vulnerabilities in Windows 10 and other OS components. All Windows 10 versions received it, including version 1607, 1703, 1709, 1803, 1809, 1903 and 1909.
However, this update not only that fails to install on some devices, but also causes other issues, including breaking down the "Reset this PC" option on devices where it's successfully installed.
"Using the "Reset this PC" feature, also called "Push Button Reset" or PBR, might fail. You might restart into recovery with "Choose an option" at the top of the screen with various options or you might restart to desktop and receive the error 'There was a problem resetting your PC,'" Microsoft explains, adding that some may also "encounter issues trying to install or after installing" this update.
Update already removed
While Microsoft has now removed the update and devices can no longer install it, this decision doesn't affect computers where the update is already running, the company explains. If no issues are experienced on your computer with KB4524244 installed, then you're just good to go.
"This standalone security update has been removed due to an issue affecting a sub-set of devices. It will not be re-offered from Windows Update, Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) or Microsoft Update Catalog. Note: Removal of this standalone security update does not affect successful installation or any changes within any other February 11, 2020 security updates, including Latest Cumulative Update (LCU), Monthly Rollup or Security Only update," Microsoft says.
On the other hand, users whose devices encounter various issues after installing this security update are recommended to remove it from the Update history screen in Windows Update.
