        W10 20H2

        Windows Update showed kb4023057 in the queue along with cum update kb5001330, cum net update kb4601050 and removal of Flash kb4577586.

        WuShowHide showed all the above and some driver updates available to hide. Following PKCano’s method I hid kb4023057 and the driver updates. I let Windows update check for updates, but kb4023057 is still listed in the queue. Tried unhiding kb4023057, restarting then turning off the pc. Then followed PKC’s method again and re-hid kb4023057. Windows Update checked again for updates and kb4023057 is still in the queue.

        I followed exactly the same method on two other systems (also updated to 20H2 in April and with the same WU settings) and kb4023057 diappeared from the queue after the first WU check.

        I would rather get kb4023057 out of the queue than instal and then remove afterwards.

        Any help gratefully received.

        Thanks

        Will

        Use WUmgr instead of wushowhide.
        You can run Windows update check from within WUmgr.

        Thanks for the suggestion, but I really want to know why wuShowHide is not working for me this time. I have followed PKCano’s method since moving to W10 and have always found it to be effective.

        Currently wuShowHide says kb4023057 is hidden and not available to be hidden , but after letting WU check twice it is still showing in the update queue. I am somewhat reluctant to try Matador’s pause and unpause method to which PKCano refers in akb2000013 as wu has already checked for updates twice and still 4023057 remains in the queue. So am I correct that just bringing forward a third wu check will not help?

        Thanks

          sometimes Microsoft issues a “revised” or new version of KB4023057 from time to time and that new version will have to be hidden again, either by Wumgr or Wushowhide

        It was the same version of kb4023057 – 2021-03 that I hid (and wushowhide showed as hidden)  and was still in the wu queue after letting windows check for updates twice. In the end I tried the pause, unpause method from akb2000013 with metered connection on which caused windows to check for updates again. This worked in removing kb4023057 from the update queue, no idea why the two previous checks did not remove it. Incidentally despite metered connections being on the Adobe Flash removal update which was in the queue immediately downloaded and installed without waiting for clicking to download, presumably because of its small size.
