    If you're already running Version 1607, the language of Microsoft's Windows 10 Update Assistant web page suggests that you should be able to get rid of it:
    "To help keep all Windows 10 systems secure and provide the latest features and improvements, the Windows 10 Update Assistant downloads and starts the setup for Windows 10 Anniversary Update (version 1607). The Windows 10 Update Assistant will be deployed to Windows 10 PCs that have not yet had the latest update installed."
    I'm puzzled by the fact it's still around on your system, apparently: as I recall it runs through the Web and I can't find any local executables related to this facility.
