    Windows 10 Update is telling me to uninstall 'VirtualBox' but I cannot find it anywhere...


    I have checked my files and searched in the over all File Explorer search page as well as searching through my Add or remove programs list in settings and the list in Control Panel.

    Any help on how I can delete/repair then delete this program to update to Windows 10, version 20H2?

    :)

    Thank you for trying to help , i did tried your suggestion but it did not work :/ , nothing seems to make it work on Windows 10 Fall Creators Update 1709. In the meantime i have bought a new SoundBlasterX AE-5 and it did installed flawlessly , no problems whatsoever. it is up to Creative ( drivers ) and Microsoft ( bug fix ) to fix this huge bugs with Audio.

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    Unable to uninstall windows update


    Thank you but when I executed all the steps at the end it says "There are no updates available to Hide"
    Here is what I did:
    Downloaded that software
    saved it in E:\ drive
    Ran it by double clicking
    Clicked on advance and selected the checkbox which says 'Apply the repairs automatically'
    Clicked on Next
    Clicked on "Hide Update" but after that it says there are no updates to hide.

    I am doing all this because two days ago my Windows 10 went through an updated related to Security and Microsoft Office but only after this my Oracle VirtualBox doesn't start. When I click on the program it doesn't respond at all and that's why I want to uninstall the updates.
    Then somebody suggested me that I should create another user account, login with that and then try running VirtualBox. So I created one but when I try to login with that I get the error - "User Profile Service Failed to Login, User Profile cannot be loaded".
