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.
