    Windows 10 always updating/unable to properly update


    My Windows 10 Home won't stop updating the same things (or atleast always wants to update these things)...

    I'll restart the computer and they'll still be in the update history as (Requires a restart to finish installing)...

    They are:

    1. Security Update for Adobe Flash Player for Windows 10 Version 1709 for x86-based Systems (KB4093110)

    2. Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1709for x86-based Systems (KB4088776)

    3. Security Update for Adobe Flash Player (Windows 10 Version 1709)for x86-based Systems (KB4088785).

    And most recently (yesterday)
    4. Security Update for Windows (KB4088776).

    I've tried uninstalling these updates (doesn't work, they just come up again) as well as tracking them down and manually installing them...

    Whenever I go to shut down - always says, "update and shut down".

    I've considered a reset as an option -but I thought I'd ask around first.

    Any ideas would be much appreciated.

    Thanks very much,

    Hi Stuart.

    What build is your system reporting (Windows key + R, type winver, enter)

    I might first suggest just resetting windows update.

    So indeed it is not up to date. 16299.248 is February.

    I would try the Windows Update reset.

    I've now manually downloaded and successfully installed -- 2018-04 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1709 for x86-based Systems (KB4093112). It is in Control Panel.

    However, it still comes up on the Update Status and update.

    With cmd/reset...
    The system could not find...
