    Windows Update 1809 will not stop trying to install...


    Hello,

    So my current problem (with an acer aspire which I have had for TWO WEEKS) is the 'windows feature update 1809' seems to have downloaded but will not stop trying to install it even after numerous failed attempts. I want to remove this update from my computer but I am not sure how to do this since it hasn't actually installed? Does that make any sense? The reason being that every time it starts trying to install, it puts my disk usage in the red (100% almost the entire time) and obviously that's not ideal. I ran the update troubleshooter and it wants me to delete and re-download all the updates? There has been about ten of those since I've owned this machine and I don't really want to spend the next eight hours re-doing something that should have been done already??? Currently the only way out of this hell is to open task manager and "end" the update. I know that won't work forever because when I have to update something else it'll start over again.


    I've also been reading all kinds of forums and have found no real answers. I can take it in to best buy in the morning but if there's something I can do myself I would greatly appreciate some pointers!


    Some people online are saying since so many users have had issues with this update microsoft was either supposed to not release it to anyone else (its the one from october, I bought this machine earlier in december. however I did have updates from as early as may that windows forced me to download and install, but those went fine) or they are telling people to wait until a new update is released and that should magically fix the problem?? and also who knows when that will be.


    Basically what I would like is a way to get rid of this file so I don't have to live in this perpetual update loop.

    Help a girl out. I appreciate it.

    (Quickly losing my mind)

    :)

    Windows Updates failed to instal

    I'm not sure how differant XP media center Edition is but you could clear the history \ cache if these folders are there.

    Step 1 Register DLL files.

    =================

    By trying this step, we can check if the update engines are working properly.



    1. Close all instances of Internet Explorer.

    2. Click Start and Run, type "Regsvr32 atl.dll" (without quotes) in the Open box and click OK.



    Note: There is a space between regsvr32 and atl.dll



    3. Similarly, one by one, register the files listed below:



    Regsvr32 msxml3.dll

    Regsvr32 wuapi.dll

    Regsvr32 wuaueng.dll

    Regsvr32 wuaueng1.dll

    Regsvr32 wups2.dll

    Regsvr32 wucltui.dll

    Regsvr32 wups.dll

    Regsvr32 wuweb.dll

    Regsvr32 qmgr.dll

    Regsvr32 qmgrprxy.dll

    Regsvr32 jscript.dll



    Note: If you encounter errors while registering any of these files then skip that file and continue with the next one.



    If the issue persists, let's move on to the steps below to verify Windows Update services and temporary folders.



    Step 2 Verify the relevant Windows Update services.

    =========================================

    1. Click Start->Run, type "services.msc" (without quotation marks) in the open box and click OK.

    2. Double click the service "Automatic Updates".

    3. Click on the Log On tab, please ensure the option "Local System account" is selected and the option "Allow service to interact with desktop" is unchecked.

    4. Check if this service has been enabled on the listed Hardware Profile. If not, please click the Enable button to enable it.

    5. Click on the tab "General "; make sure the "Startup Type" is "Automatic" or "Manual". Then please click the button "Stop" under "Service Status" to stop the service.

    6. Then please click the button "Start" under "Service Status" to start the service.

    7. Please repeat the above steps with the other services:



    Background Intelligent Transfer Service

    Event Log

    Remote Procedure Call (RPC)



    Note: Event log service is enabled on all of the hardware profiles; this service does not have an option to enable or disable on certain hardware profile.



    If it still does not help, let's proceed to step 3.



    Step 3 Reload the Update temporary folders.

    ===================================

    One possible cause is that the temporary folder for Windows Update is containing corrupted files. Let's erase all the files there to get the system clean.



    1. Click Start, Run, type: cmd and press Enter. Please run the following command in the opened window.



    Net stop WuAuServ



    2. Click Start, Run, type: %windir% and press Enter.

    3. In the opened folder, rename the folder SoftwareDistribution to Sdold.

    4. Click Start, Run, type: cmd and press Enter. Please run the following command in the opened window.



    Net start WuAuServ



    Please test the Windows Update website and let me know the result. If the issue persists, to clarify the issue and provide more accurate troubleshooting steps, please assist me in collecting the following information.
