    Windows 10 updates and Silverlight

    Oh yes! I've just noticed that with the last few Windows 10 updates, Silverlight updates has failed. I've just removed it and now my question is, since it has been removed, will Windows 10 stop trying to update it. If there is further advice with this, please let me know. Thanks!

    MS have or are in the process of dropping support for Silverlight since they were mostly the only ones who used it. I would not bother with it. Hopefully they will update WU and remove it from there too.

    So does this mean then, since I have removed it that it will not try to update it any longer? In other words, will I not see the "failed to update" with regards to Silverlight?
