unpuxworker wants to install as apparently (maybe) a part of Windows 10 update. No clue as to what this is, what it does, or what it's for.

A few minutes later, "we bumped into a problem". This sounds like a typical Microsoft vaguely worded reference to gawd knows what.

Wow! How does anyone put up with MS anymore?

'Unpuxworker'.  This had me going as well as I have never heard the word, so I Googled it. The only reference Google gave was as a word used once as the solution to a clue in the New York Times crossword, apparently meaning 'An unpaid factory worker'. Remind me not to try their crossword, it's above my pay grade !

 

I am no wiser than you about what this could possibly have to do with a Windows update. Unless it raises its ugly head again I wouldn't worry about it.

This came up on one of the blind technology forums I participate on as well.  While this thing has been identified as a MS file no one has, as yet, been able to give any detailed information regarding what it does.

So maybe this is a clue to a new crossword that MS is comin out with? What a deal! ;-()

After reading all the cryptic google results and some here, It's still a mystery.
