I installed uBlock Origin for the Edge browser from the Windows Store, and then decided to uninstall it.


Now every time I start Windows, WindowsUpdateClient apparently tries to re-install it.  I consistently see 3 consecutive Event IDs related to this after each startup in the Windows System Log.


Event ID 44:  Windows Update started downloading an update.

Event ID 43:  Installation Started:  Windows has started installing the following update: uBlock Origin

Event ID 20:  Installation Failure:  Windows failed to install the following update with error 0x80073D05: uBlock Origin.


And then uBlock Origin again appears in the Start Menu under "U".  Although I can then select uninstall again in the Start menu [and the item will be deleted], as soon as I reboot, the process will start again with Event ID 20.


How can I prevent Windows from attempting to re-install uBlock Origin after each boot?  The event data appears below.


Thanks for any information!
