        WU History App recent results …. Can someone make a guess as to the What-Why of these Failed Installs via my Imgur Link?

        Amazon, McAfee, MS Skpe App are suspect and Games I Never Use are moreso.
        .Net Framework & Runtime infer “Real” but ???
        ESET Security + Mbam Prem Logs show Nothing ref Malware triggers.

        Any thoughts are appreciated.

        Those are all Windows Store updates, so try:

        1) The troubleshooter at Settings, Update & Security, Troubleshoot, Additional troubleshooter, Windows Store Apps (right at the bottom of the list).

        2) Windows Store app, … more, Downloads and updates, Get updates.

        Disable store downloads either by going to Microsoft Store or by editing with GPEdit.

        Better still, uninstall Microsoft Store apps using a tool like Debonet or Portable Windows 10 Apps Manager…

        Thanks to you Both.

        I signed-in to my MS Acct But THEN found an article & did the following …..  I typed – Microsoft Store  — into Start Search and after APP Open Clk’d the 3-Dot Bar Top Rt / Settings … the 1st Slide-bar is App Updates (Auto Update) and I Clk’d to Off.

        Not sure IF it would have worked without Acct Sign-in BUT it’s done. Thanks again!!
