As you might have seen, Windows 10 has lately been quite buggy for some users and we have seen that Microsoft is hard at work updating the OS and releasing new patches to remove those bugs. A new bug has been found in the latest patch of Windows 10 which is named as the “user-profile” bug.
As per a report, this “user-profile” bug is something where a user is not able to find their data and apps when they have logged in with their profile. This means that you get something like a fresh install even if you have installed many apps and have stored data on your profile.
Now, you can see why this can get annoying since there are apps which you need on a daily basis. And if they are not available, it can get troublesome. However, this bug is not deleting your data or profiles but just not able to show it which means there is a way to solve it and retrieve the data.
How to fix the user-profile bug on Windows 10’s latest patch
So here is how you can solve this bug and get your user-profile data back:
- Open the Windows 10 Start menu which is on the bottom-left-most part of the screen.
- Go to “Settings > Update & Security > View Update History” and click on “Uninstall updates“.
- Now, you will be presented with a search box to find which update you want to uninstall. Type “Windows 10 Autopilot update KB4532441” and it will give you a result.
- Once the update is found, click on the “Uninstall” button at top of the list. If asked, click on “Yes” to confirm uninstalling the update.
- Now, your update will be uninstalled and your PC will reboot for changes to take effect.
Now that you have removed the update which had this bug from your PC, the problem will be solved. Also, make sure to not install any new update before Microsoft releases a patch regarding this bug.
