        Another Windows 10 2004 glitch I’ve noticed following my recent reinstall, is that despite the Group Policy for Windows Update Checking being set to “disabled” on the local computer policy section, updates are still checked for daily.

        I’ve looked for KB 4023057 in installed updates, and it’s not there, so I just wondered if anyone else is seeing this behaviour, and if so – any fixes?

         

        Best,

        Marc

        Look in the Settings App under Apps. I believe KB 4023057 installs as an App.

        Thanks PKCano – just checked, no luck. No apps listed beginning with KB or containing those digits.

        Best,

          I don’t think it is called “KB something”
          Look for a name implying MS helper.
          Try the Control Panel/Add Remove Programs

        Hm – nothing that implies a helper. Closest I’ve got to that is a Microsoft app called “App Installer”.

        In the event log I have several installer messages from “Windows update service”. One relates to a game update, and the others are all phone updates (I use the Xbox Gaming service, but I don’t use the phone service).

          Perhaps you didn’t get that on – you don’t want it!!
          I can’t tell you what it’s called. I have never let it on my machines 🙂

        Try the uninstall procedure given in the link already given by PKCano relevant to your OS bitness, it’ll do no harm if it’s not there and should remove the kb if it is:

        Sorry PKCano – not sure what you mean. App Installer?

          App Installer is not the right one.

        Nice thought Microfix :-). I just tried that and it popped up a dialog box asking first if I was sure I wanted to uninstall (I clicked “yes”) and then another one stating uninstall had failed, as only apps that are installed can be uninstalled. I’m guessing it’s not there.

        OK PKCano … well, there’s nothing else that looks even remotely suspicious.

        Thanks Alex5723. I just searched my apps list, and the only 2 programs I have with the word “update” in the description are “Apple Software Update” and “Microsoft Edge Update”.
