Late last week, Microsoft rolled out an update to resolve a pesky (but reportedly rare) random reboot bug that occurred on some systems running Windows 10 October 2020 Update. A recent update resulted in issues with the Local Security Authority Process. This caused data loss for some users as they got a cryptic "Your PC will automatically restart in one minute" screen.

Besides fixing the reboot bug, Microsoft also lifted restrictions that prevented October 2020 Update (version 20H2) from installing on some PCs. These systems should now be compatible with the latest version of Windows. Lastly, Microsoft is also working on fixing a bug that deletes stored password. This bug manifests itself in Edge, Chrome, OneDrive, and other apps:
In addition to the forced reboot bug, Microsoft has also started rolling out a fix for an issue that deletes your passwords. When this happens, Windows will automatically delete your login sessions in apps and websites after rebooting your computer.

Anyone suffering from authentication and browser cookies problem will be hoping that the resolution comes soon. However, Microsoft has clarified that it’s still testing the fix with Windows Insiders and the patch will begin rolling out to the general public soon.
