Have you tried to uninstall Avira by the method in that article ?

How were you trying to access services and on another note, what logs were you referring to that snagged those two updates ?

Yes, that is an Avira file -

It's about 11.15pm here in the UK so I won't be around for much longer either.

See if you can uninstall Avira by this method -

If you can't get Safe Mode with Command Prompt, see if the cmd will execute from the RE Command Prompt.

EDIT - It doesn't work from the RE cmd prompt or from booting up with an install disk from the RE.

Is that the correct spelling for advprot as I can't find anything on that file/driver name.

Are you able to boot up into Safe Mode with Networking by selecting that from the advanced boot options ?

In that mode you can access Installed Updates by going Start - type installed then press enter when View installed updates comes up.

The search in the top right doesn't work but you can scroll down to those you want to uninstall by right clicking on them and selecting Uninstall.

EDIT - I'm unable to find KB4099633 on my Win 7 but KB4103718 was installed on the 20th June 2018 but after each month's updates I run Disk Cleanup as an admin which cleans out obsolete updates and that one may have been in those.

Let's see if this will work.

In the advanced boot options select Repair your computer and navigate to the Recovery Environment (RE) to select Command Prompt.

Enter wusa /uninstall /kb:44284867

repeat the cmd for KB4284826


then reboot to see if you are back to normal.

Note the space before each /

It may not find the first one as that is a security only update, but the second is the monthly rollup one.

When I ran it on my Win 10 to check it out and it took out the updates, I found that restoring with the auto registry backup reinstated Windows Update, but that wouldn't have fixed the problem(s) why WR was run in the first place.

However, thanks for posting your solution as having reinstalled those two services may help to resolve it in the repair program.

One of the repairs is to repair services damaged by infection - not sure if this is where the problem occurs, so I'll run the program again with that repair unchecked to see if it still takes out Windows Update.

I'll see if reinstalling those services will fix the mmc.exe problem it also causes on mine which the registry restore doesn't fix.

EDIT - My error - the repair is to remove policies set by infections and not anything to do with services, so I haven't run the program again.

The fact that you've done a repair install and troubleshooters haven't found anything amiss would suggest the problem could lay with what you have on the computer.

Had you downloaded/installed anything immediately or recently prior to this happening ?

I assume you have already tried a clean boot or your restore points ?

Unfortunately, the store doesn't fully open in Safe Mode with Networking which would isolate all 3rd party programs, so a clean boot is the next best option.

While you say you don't or rarely use those apps - it's annoying that something doesn't work as it should.

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.
