How do you uninstall an update that appears wasn't optional.
I can't remember the specific KB # for that download......anyone know for sure?

I have just gone through the process of uninstalling this Autopilot P.O.S. that shouldn't have been offered to Win10 Home.

As I mentioned:
You can View Update History, there is an Uninstall Updates button at the top, that just lists them all it doesn't start deleting them all. I selected the Autopilot one KB4523786 and chose delete, it quickly flashed in front of my eyes and requested a restart to complete the process.

Note:  After I completed the uninstall, I felt I had to confirm for myself.  And got a bit of a shock, in the History it still shows Autopilot successfully installed.  So I stepped into the Uninstall Updates to view what was there and the Autopilot KB4523786 is no longer listed.

I would have thought that this View History entry might have been removed also or at least annotated as uninstalled.

Well, I'll link the Reddit thread for those who're interested in further info what we've got, what's not a lot, since this is Microsoft the enigma we're dealing with

Well add a mind blower to the mix, this just happened.
I went back to the 2 updates I was offered earlier ( KB4523786 and .Net update) that I paused for 7 days and "Resumed" the updates to find that the Auto Pilot update (KB4523786) that had accompanied the .Net update was now gone and only the >Net update was showing ???
I have no idea why this happened, and to add, I went back (as I always do) and checked for updates again......to find and a new optional Cumulative update KB4522355 and decided to install it.
Auto Pilot update appears to have just 'disapeared'

Yeah, I don't think anyone has stated the opposite. Besides, if it was substantially widespread then it'd be a hot topic already

That is the whole point, Win10 Home installations shouldn't have been offered it (and offered it was wrong, it was shoved down their throats) no offer, not optional, it installed.

I would guess that MS have finally pulled it based on the fact that it shouldn't have been 'offered' in the first place (I really do hate that word) and various complaints/publicity.

Maybe a little late on a reply but one thing you can do is revert to the older version automatically saved before updating to 1903.  Otherwise, sounds like a video driver issue or Windows setting involving putting your monitor display to sleep.
Windows 10 Home 64-bit 1809 Avast Premier Security version 19.8.2393 (build 19.8.4793.541) UI version 1.0.415.  Current version is back to Avast Internet Security.

I am honestly still crying because of the issue because i tried updating my video card driver but the issue still persisted... went to updates on my pc and i tried to uninstall but i my self failed to uninstall the update because when if it finished it never got removed
