Microsoft has pushed update KB4523786 accidentally to Windows Home edition users

Along with an optional cumulative update for Windows 10 May 2019 Update, Microsoft also pushed Windows Autopilot Update KB4523786 for businesses and enterprises. Generally, Windows Autopilot is used in business organizations to set and configure new devices, recover and reset devices, and KB4523786 comes with fixes for these.

Many users have reported that the company accidentally released the Update KB4523786 to Windows 10 Home and Pro PCs. The patch downloads automatically and ask you to restart the PC. If you have switched off your Windows 10 automatic updates, the patch won’t download. The cumulative is for Autopilot-configured devices, not for regular Windows 10. Microsoft’s Intune team has also confirmed by replying to a user’s tweet that it was pushed accidentally.

Here is what the Intune Support Team tweeted in reply:

Sorry for your experience! An Intune Autopilot update, which was targeted as part of the out of box experience for new devices, was incorrectly offered to customers running Windows Home edition during a regularly scheduled Windows update scan. Once we became aware of the issue, we stopped distribution of the update. If you have already installed the update, it will not affect you. If not, there is further action required.

PaulSey, a Microsoft employee, has also validated that the update was incorrectly delivered to users running Windows 10 Home edition while regular Windows update scan.

As the Intune Support Team mentioned that if you install the update, it won’t affect but if you want to remove the update then follow the below steps:

  1. Use the shortcut WinKey + i from the keyboard to open the Windows Settings.
  2. Open Update & Securityupdate security
  3. Click View update historyWindows update
  4. Click Uninstall updates linkuninstall updates
  5. Now select the update from the list and click on Uninstall.
