    Update keeps trying to install, sort of


    Had a lot of updates on my laptop yesterday, and in the end this message pops up. "A current driver on your PC may be better than the driver we're trying to install. We'll keep trying to install" Then the box you click on RETRY is the only option I have. I have retried several times and of course the same message comes up. How can I make this go away?? My laptop is an Asus X555u, running Windows 10

    :)

    Sort by 'Date Modified' but keep folders at the top?

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I understand that after recent update when you sort the files by Date Modified, the folders are listed at the bottom. We would like to know which update was installed on the computer, to check go to
    Start >> Settings >> Update & Security >> Windows Update >> View update history.



    However, you can go ahead and try the following steps and see if that helps in listing the folders at top:



    1. Open File Explorer and navigate to the location where your files are stored.
    2. Sort files by Date Modified (Recent files first).
    3. Hold Shift key and click on the
      Name
      column. This will bring folders at the top with files sorted with Date Modified.


    Let us know the results.



    Regards,

    Insurgency wont install and run for me....

    I have played and have fully updated CS and Half life 2....
    I am using the newest client and installed the SDK.

    I am completely blown away, if i click the desktop icon it starts the sdk and then closes, and it doesn't show up in my game list...

    First mod attempt install here, followed the directions step by step on the mods website...

    Any ideas?

    Update keeps trying to install, sort of

    Windows Updated(16299.309).KB4088776 Restart is required to complete.

    Hi dalchina. Good news, I followed your suggestion and reinstalled the update and now it appears as "installed correctly" *Biggrin Maybe it was not necessary to run the Windows Update Troubleshooter or maybe if necessary. But using it I do not think it could have worsened something. The installation was very fast, unlike the first time it showed step 1 and step 2 completed.

    Thanks for the suggestions and for the time to respond Update keeps trying to install, sort of :) Best regards.


    And thanks for the tip of that program, I'll have it on my list.
