I've had Windows 10 for some time, and have the anniversary update.


So why is this on my desktop?   Control Panel>Programs indicates it was installed today??


I have update in my settings so what is this?


I searched but I only found a bunch of folks are stuck at 99%, I'm not.


The urge to uninstall is addictive.  Advice would be appreciated.

If you clicked Upgrade Now when trying to download Media Creation Tool, it will download the Windows 10 Upgrade Assistant instead. It "installs" itself and then tries to upgrade the system. Now that you have already upgraded to Windows 10, you can uninstall it :)
