    How do you remove the Autopilot update completely?


    At various times Microsoft has inadvertently delivered an Autopilot update to all W10 Pro machines, not just those enrolled in Autopilot. Here's the one from December...

    KB4532441 Cumulative update for Autopilot in Windows 10 1903 and 1909

    Back in October they even pushed it onto Home machines, despite saying Home should never have Autopilot!

    I have three W10 Pro 1909 machines that got the Autopilot update at various times. It can be uninstalled in Control Panel > Programs and Features > Installed Updates, but despite Microsoft's reassurance that "If you were offered this update and do not use Autopilot, installing this update will not affect you" there is one very visible after-effect of having had it installed, even after it has been uninstalled. Every time updates are installed Windows tells me that Your organisation manages your update settings.

    Now this may just be cosmetic, but I can't help worrying what else may be left behind after uninstalling the update. So much so that I have just spent an afternoon reverting one on my machines to a Macrium image from just after its clean install, then recreating all the configuration changes made since then. In particular, my thanks goes to Brink for this tutorial.

    So far two out of three machines have had to go back to an early image in order to remove this annoyance. But for the third that is impractical, there's just too much to reconfigure.


    My question: does anyone know where these left-over settings are hiding? I've been through the registry with a fine toothed comb and cannot find any significant differences between a machine that has had the autopilot update and one that has never seen it.

    Hi dalchina. Good news, I followed your suggestion and reinstalled the update and now it appears as "installed correctly" *Biggrin Maybe it was not necessary to run the Windows Update Troubleshooter or maybe if necessary. But using it I do not think it could have worsened something. The installation was very fast, unlike the first time it showed step 1 and step 2 completed.

    Thanks for the suggestions and for the time to respond How do you remove the Autopilot update completely? :) Best regards.


    And thanks for the tip of that program, I'll have it on my list.

    KB4532441 Cumulative update for Autopilot in Windows 10 1903 and 1909 Win Update

    No need now, the Autopilot update has been pulled and a check for updates no longer finds it. Not only that, but on machines where I had hidden it, it has disappeared from the list of hidden updates too.
