  1. Silverlight won't update, won't uninstall, what next?


    It seems this is not a new issue, but it is to me. This relates to a Windows 10 Pro v1903 installation on a not so young Lenovo Thinkpad. Windows Update reports failure to install an update to Silverlight KB4481252 and returns error code 0x80070643. Ran the Troubleshooter, retried the update, same result.


    The fix listed by MS offers an autofix, as well as fix it yourself option. The autofix did not work and I'm reluctant to try the other option unless I absolutely have to. Two questions, for Microsoft only, however well meaning other contributors might be:


    1. I assume Silverlight has become corrupted on this machine. What is the safest and most certain way of removing its remains?

    2. Going forward, is Silverlight really necessary and why?


    Looking forward to your response, MS.


    Best to all,


    Starkers
