Having read your thread in the forum and other Google links on this error and if you have also tried those, should it be an Internet problem, open a Command Prompt (Admin) and enter these cmds then check after the the reboot.

netsh winsock reset

shutdown /r /t 00

Can you give us a list of the things you have tried ?

I misunderstood your post - thought it was because you couldn't find Silverlight and not an uninstalling problem.

Windows Repair isn't a tune up program, but designed to fix problems.

If you don't have any problems then there is no need to run it.

I'm still waiting for Shane to come back with a solution which will probably be in the form of another version, but it would appear to be difficult to nail down.

It doesn't affect Win 7 as it does Win 10, so there must have been something in 1803 which so far has remained undetectable - I assume.

The program ignores any repairs that don't apply to the version of Windows it is run on, so it is optional as to whether you uncheck those and yes, there is a portable version but it is universal, just like the installed version.

As you can see from this article, there can be a number of reasons for that error code.

It advocates running its own repair program which I don't but the manual steps are valid and I would advise creating a system image onto external media before proceeding with any changes.

Because of problems occurring with Win 10 after running Windows Repair, I would advise against running that program on Win 10 at the moment to resolve any permission problems.

As an alternative, you can perform a repair install which won't affect personal stuff or installed programs.

If you don't have Win 10 install media, you can create it after reading the instructions at

With the computer booted up, open Windows Explorer/This PC - insert the install disk or USB and double click on its drive.

This will start the process if using a disk but will open to its files if using an USB, where you would then double click on setup Application.

This takes about 3˝hrs on my Win 10 Home machines and you may have to reset any default changes you had made.

This is still under investigation.

What problems do you have that you need to run WR ?

If you do have problems that the dism and sfc /scannow cmds will not fix, then I would suggest that you perform a repair install which doesn't affect personal stuff or installed programs.

However, it's always best to perform at least a chkdsk /f first to see if it reports any KBs in bad sectors.

Adobe Flash Player can be found in Programs and Features but should also have an Adobe folder in C:\Program Files (x86) if using a 64bit system - otherwise it will be in Program Files.

Double clicking on that will expand to any Adobe products you have installed.

Silverlight is bundled with Windows Live Essentials.

MS used to have a Fix it button in an article to uninstall it prior to reinstalling but MS have since withdrawn all Fit its.

To get rid of Silverlight you will now have to uninstall Windows Live Essentials.

However, Windows Live Essentials also includes Windows Live Mail and Windows Live Hotmail - both of which use Silverlight.

If you use either of those emails then you will need to retain Silverlight.

This article lists what Windows Live Essentials included, but you can uninstall Windows Live Essentials then Google for any of the single items to download/install as required.

You're welcome :)

It may also be prudent to start creating system images onto external media should you not be able to get in to restore from those registry points.

This is the stand alone version and what it looks like now, although it is also available in the Windows Repair program.

Perhaps you should reinstall it.

That isn't something I've set up but it may not have fully survived the transition to Win 10.

I would suggest reinstalling the program, deleting the schedule and setting it up again and if it still doesn't work, let me know and I'll pass it on.

Well that's good news - I thought you got rid of the update minitool ?

Now that Windows Update is working again, you may get the update naturally to bring you up to the current version.

Yes you can but that is why the program auto creates a registry backup as soon as the repairs are selected, so if things don't work out, you can revert any changes.

You haven't answered if you ran the repair program in Safe Mode.

I was getting an admin had blocked mmc.exe to protect me when I tried to access services after running WR but got the same update error message with the error code as you.

I'd created a Macrium system image before running WR so was able to revert the changes.

Was your services update error message after trying the program's Registry Restore, or haven't you tried it yet ?

EDIT - When you ran WR, did you run it in Safe Mode With Networking ?
