    Microsoft pulled the Windows 10 November Update due to privacy setting


    Microsoft has today detailed why they chose to pull the Windows 10 November Update from Windows Update and the Media Creation Tool over the weekend. Their initial comment regarding the situation claimed the company decided that all users needed to update via Windows Update, but it appears that was not the entire story.

    Microsoft told WinBeta the update was pulled due to issues with privacy concerns. More specifically, upon installing the update, Windows would not remember the users had set privacy settings, meaning Windows would simply default them. While not a huge bug, it did raise a few privacy concerns amongst those upgrading.

    The update was only pulled from Windows Update for Windows 10 users, as those users are the ones who were affected by this bug. Users upgrading from Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 were unaffected.

    You couldn't even write comedy like this, why wasn't Microsoft simply honest about why they pulled the update, the initial reason given made no sense to everyone, and it was so clearly nonsense !
