My desktop shows that KB4088776 was successfully installed EACH DAY from 3/22/2018 through today 4/29/2018.


Why does it continue to be reinstalled?


How do I stop this constant repeating?


Each time it installs, I cannot use my computer for ten to fifteen minutes at a time.

Try the following (this presumes you are on an account that has admin privileges and can open an elevated Command Prompt):


1.  Open Command Prompt with Admin privileges.


2.  Enter the commands below one at the time (pressing Enter after each and waiting for each to complete before doing the next):

  • net stop wuauserv
  • ren %SystemRoot%\SoftwareDistribution\Download DL.bak
  • net start wuauserv
  • wuauclt.exe /updatenow

The last command should trigger a Windows Update and, with any luck, it won't attempt to reinstall the one it's been insisting on trying to reinstall.


If things look good afterward, you can optionally also enter:  del %SystemRoot%\SoftwareDistribution\DL.bak


Note:  You can copy and paste each command above individually if you do not wish to type them out.
