Microsoft mistakenly pushes unwanted updates KB4532441 to users
On yesterday’s routine update day, Microsoft released new cumulative updates for various products. These cumulative updates are mainly used to fix errors and security issues. Under normal circumstances, each version will receive cumulative updates applicable only to this version, after all, Microsoft needs to make different cumulative updates according to different versions. However, sometimes Microsoft may mistakenly push unwanted updates to users. It is worth noting that the same error problem has already occurred in October.
At present, some users have received the update of KB4532441 in addition to the push of the routine cumulative update, but there is very little information about this update. Because this update is actually used by the Windows Autopilot configuration, for most users there is no need to install and configure this update. Microsoft said that this update is mainly applicable to devices in some corporate networks, and the company has withdrawn push updates because it was provided incorrectly. At the same time, Microsoft also said that the incorrect push of unwanted updates only affected Windows 10 Professional and Enterprise users, and home users would not receive the update.
Microsoft issued an announcement saying that this update will not have any negative impact on the operating system or unwanted features even if installed by users. At the same time, users who have already installed can also go to the update history to uninstall it. After uninstalling, there is no need to restart the system and the update will not be automatically installed again. Of course, at this time Microsoft has withdrawn this incorrect update, so users will not encounter this update again when they try to check for automatic updates after the update.
To uninstall this update: Control Panel —> Programs and Features —> View Installed Updates —> Find Update KB4532441 —> Right-click to uninstall the update.
