    Optional Feature that I don't want keeps trying to Install and failing


    https://media.giphy.com/media/xUPGch...p5HW/giphy.gif

    Hi, I have had this annoying problem always with Windows 10. I am from Finland, and I use English Windows. I have set-up my Windows so that I have Finnish Keyboard and English UI.

    However, for some reason this annoying Optional Feature keeps trying to install multiple times a day, and I can't find a way to fix it. I have never wanted to install it, and there is no way to select "I don't want this!". Worst part is, it always fails to install it... As you can see from the link, there are quite few pop-ups I have had to deal with.

    How can I fix this problem?

    :)

    Windows 10 optional features fail to install and installation loops

    I attempt to Add Russian, Czech, Slovak dictionaries, typing.

    MESSAGE: "We're installing new features"

    then

    MESSAGE:

    "Something happened and we couldn't install a feature. Tap for further information

    DEFAULTS TO: " Settings/See Optional Feature History"

    Tap and see that Windows tries over and over again to install features and fails. Further optional feature history shows Windows wants to install all kinds of things I don't want for these languages, like ocr and handwriting recognition.

    Settings offers no solution.

    What is the poor consumer to do?

  3. Windows 10, version 1607 keeps failing to install

    Hi Mahir, that didn't work either.

    Tried twice. Failed both times.

    Windows Update is still showing "Feature update to Windows 10, version 1607" as a pending update.

    It doesn't say why it failed. When I check "Windows Update > Advanced options > View your update history", it doesn't even show that it failed to update. The last update it mentions in the log is a Windows Defender update that was successful.

    I checked the Control Panel > Administrative > Event Log and it doesn't show up as failed in there either.

    Anyways..... I don't want to spend any more time on this. How can I block Windows from trying to install this update? I don't want to spend any more time on it. I just want to skip this update altogether, and I don't want to be prompted to install version
    1607 anymore.

  4. Optional Feature that I don't want keeps trying to Install and failing

    It is just a guess, but try to disable this task. Run CMD as admin and copy/paste:

    schtasks /Change /TN "Microsoft\Windows\LanguageComponentsInstaller\Installation" /Disable

    If it does not help, enable it back.

    schtasks /Change /TN "Microsoft\Windows\LanguageComponentsInstaller\Installation" /Enable

    Thank you!
    I'm not 100% sure at the moment if the problem is fixed, but I haven't received popups in a day. *Smile
