For Microsoft, the Windows 10 October Update did not really go down the way it was meant to be. Soon after Microsoft began roll out of the new version of Windows 10 on October 2, some users started reporting that the update ends up deleting some of their files. As a preventive measure, Microsoft decided to pull down that update before releasing a new version with a fix.

However, the new update turned out to bring a different kind of problem altogether. After installing the update, Windows 10 users started reporting that the update deletes their activation key. Now, since this issue came to light, Microsoft has stopped the update roll out and has not really confirmed when the October Update will be rolled out with all necessary fixes.
