    Default How to skip an update

    For the past while update KB3194798 has been failing every time I turn on my PC. Is there anyway to stop windows 10 from incessantly trying to run this update?

    There appear to be some fixes available including a microsoft script for Windows Insiders that is said to work ,that can be downloaded here https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/down....aspx?id=53942

    Love the comments at the bottom of that Link.
    Global Warming is Mann made.

    Do not regret growing older. It is a privilege denied to many.

    The problems we face today are because the people who work for a living are now outnumbered by those who vote for a living.

    MILLIONS of others don't have any problems what so ever.

    Then again others make their own problems and are the actual cause.

    Show everyone a OS that's perfect ?

    By your own admission your W10 is damaged, and for what ever reason you wont fix it, and then your other half gets annoyed and turns it off because its taking to long causing even more problems.

    The latest update which I put through 5 computers yesterday, the longest took 20 minutes.
    If its taking a long time, its either very low powered or theres an underlying problem.

    I'm still trying to figure out why you wont do the right thing and fix it ?
