    KB4016252 problem


    I'm having a problem with KB4016252
    Last weekend i did a clean install of Creators Update and set it to the Insiders Fast Ring, it proceeded to update and KB4016252 was installed. Last night I decided to change from the Fast Ring to the Slow Ring, after changing I rebooted the PC. Then shut it down and wenty to bed.
    This morning I booted up the PC then got notified there was an update avilable which was once again KB4016252. It has done the same four times today with this result:-

    The only way I can stop it doing this is by going back on the fast ring.

    Any ideas anyone ?

    Looks like that KB was released to the slow ring and maybe that is why you are getting the windows update notification:

    That's my problem though, as I said the update is already installed so I can't understand why updater keeps trying to install it again.

    Well, if it does show up as an installed update, why not just uninstall it and let your current ring update it?

    This problem is Confusing me more and more. I uninstalled KB4016252, moved back to the Slow Ring againand rebooted. Checked for updates and KB4016251 downloaded and installed fine. After the reboot I checked for updates again and KB4016252 downloaded then failed to install. I once again moved to the Fast Ring and checked for updates, KB4016252 downloaded and installed fine. However if I move back to either the Slow or Release Preview Rings and check for updates it once again starts downloading KB4016252 which fails to install. So why is Windows thinking that I need that CU when it's already installed.

    Andy, have you tried to reset the Windows Update database? Going back and forth, it may have gotten corrupt with pieces of things it thinks it needs. (never happened before, right? :)). Take a look at Shawn's tut. You may need to run it in safe mode, not sure. Try this for now.

    Thanks for the reply TC, I tried that yesterday but it didn't solve anything. I wouldn't mind but I did a clean install only last weekend.
