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.

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts.  Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.
