    Will reinstalling Windows 10 fix the problem I'm having with security updates?


    I have Windows 10 Home which was installed free from window 7. I no longer get any security updates. So if I install windows 10 again would I have the same problem as I think I have to install the same home version? Or do i have to buy another windows 10?

    [Solved] Windows 10 keeps reinstalling KB3119142

    I noticed quite some time ago that KB3119142 (Update for Microsoft Visual C++ 2012 Update 4 Redistributable Package) kept reinstalling itself for some reason. At least once daily. Sometimes up to several times a day. I just ignored it. It didn't seem to be doing any harm. And I figured they'd eventually fix it. Well...days turned into weeks, weeks into months, with no end to the problem in sight. It dragged on unsolved for at least the last few months. Literally reinstalling itself hundreds of(at least a hundred, felt like more) times in that period of time.

    So I finally googled it a couple days ago. And just got around to fixing it today. Which appears to have worked. And it couldn't have been easier to do. I feel so stupid to have let it intimidate me for so long.*Oops! Will reinstalling Windows 10 fix the problem I'm having with security updates? :oops:
    Below are links to the thread that I got the fix idea from, and the official MS support info page for KB3119142(from which I quoted the above).

    You have to reinstall the windows updater, then restart the updating service.
