16. 00:00:56:67 / 00:01:01:26 - look at our update history ok we've
17. 00:00:59:15 / 00:01:02:00 - played around with this update quite a
18. 00:01:01:25 / 00:01:05:64 - few times
19. 00:01:02:00 / 00:01:08:00 - ok so we've got a good feeling of what
20. 00:01:05:64 / 00:01:11:96 - it's doing and how it's working
21. 00:01:08:00 / 00:01:15:81 - the first thing is we've actually paused
22. 00:01:11:95 / 00:01:17:87 - updates ok this is the very first thing
23. 00:01:15:81 / 00:01:20:43 - we need to do by clicking on Advanced
24. 00:01:17:87 / 00:01:24:98 - Options then pausing it once that is
25. 00:01:20:43 / 00:01:27:84 - pause it stops the update process shall
26. 00:01:24:98 / 00:01:30:65 - we say using the Internet network to
27. 00:01:27:84 / 00:01:33:35 - install new updates so now we're we can
28. 00:01:30:65 / 00:01:36:90 - can like operate in manual mode
29. 00:01:33:34 / 00:01:39:95 - we're gonna uninstall it so the first
30. 00:01:36:90 / 00:01:44:43 - thing is go to PowerShell type in power
31. 00:01:39:95 / 00:01:46:25 - show and then right click and then run
32. 00:01:44:43 / 00:01:50:04 - as administrator we've already done that
33. 00:01:46:25 / 00:01:55:72 - I'm just going to minimize this ok and
34. 00:01:50:04 / 00:01:55:72 - you want to run basically this command
35. 00:01:55:87 / 00:01:59:84 - this command should be there in the
36. 00:01:58:14 / 00:02:04:25 - description so you just copy and paste
37. 00:01:59:84 / 00:02:11:96 - it in there ok but it's basically WUSA
38. 00:02:04:25 / 00:02:14:46 - /on installed 4 / kb : 403 8 7 8 8 which
39. 00:02:11:96 / 00:02:17:50 - is the key beat the KB
40. 00:02:14:46 / 00:02:21:49 - so we'll just bring us out back in here
41. 00:02:17:50 / 00:02:25:12 - and we'll just press ENTER what this
42. 00:02:21:49 / 00:02:29:11 - will do it'll run the windows update
43. 00:02:25:12 / 00:02:31:24 - stand-alone installer which also is used
44. 00:02:29:11 / 00:02:36:07 - for uninstalling do you want to
45. 00:02:31:24 / 00:02:39:82 - uninstall yes we do and this will
46. 00:02:36:06 / 00:02:41:76 - uninstall just waltzes uninstalling and
47. 00:02:39:81 / 00:02:46:15 - getting on with tasks we'll just have a
48. 00:02:41:77 / 00:02:51:43 - quick little talk about why it may not
49. 00:02:46:15 / 00:02:53:92 - uninstall in our update history the
50. 00:02:51:43 / 00:02:56:37 - latest update was the one we're trying
51. 00:02:53:91 / 00:02:58:28 - to uninstall sometimes well quite
52. 00:02:56:37 / 00:03:03:15 - frequently in Windows 10
53. 00:02:58:28 / 00:03:08:13 - newer updates either replace this
54. 00:03:03:15 / 00:03:10:96 - superseded or change the shall we say
55. 00:03:08:13 / 00:03:14:51 - the history log of the updates and then
56. 00:03:10:96 / 00:03:17:20 - it becomes next to impossible to remove
57. 00:03:14:52 / 00:03:21:55 - unless you really really really want to
58. 00:03:17:19 / 00:03:24:03 - do the manual way ok after it is
59. 00:03:21:55 / 00:03:27:13 - finished that process it says restart
60. 00:03:24:03 / 00:03:33:57 - now ok you can close down all windows
61. 00:03:27:12 / 00:03:39:09 - etc first if you want to and then click
62. 00:03:33:58 / 00:03:41:83 - restart now this should restart
63. 00:03:39:09 / 00:03:46:15 - basically get everything ready and come
64. 00:03:41:83 / 00:03:51:22 - back with that kb uninstalled okay so
65. 00:03:46:15 / 00:03:54:48 - now we've restarted ok and let's assume
66. 00:03:51:21 / 00:03:55:90 - you want to block a certain update for
67. 00:03:54:48 / 00:03:59:05 - example the one that was causing us
68. 00:03:55:90 / 00:04:01:56 - problem we do have a video that the link
69. 00:03:59:05 / 00:04:03:51 - should be in the description but we'll
70. 00:04:01:56 / 00:04:06:90 - also just show you quickly what you need
71. 00:04:03:51 / 00:04:10:50 - to do ok basically open up a browser of
72. 00:04:06:90 / 00:04:14:01 - your choice and you need to basically
73. 00:04:10:50 / 00:04:16:50 - download this how to temporary
74. 00:04:14:01 / 00:04:20:28 - temporarily prevent a driver update from
75. 00:04:16:50 / 00:04:23:52 - reinstalling in Windows 10 okay so
76. 00:04:20:27 / 00:04:26:82 - that's the URL that should also be in
77. 00:04:23:52 / 00:04:28:35 - the description you then download this
78. 00:04:26:82 / 00:04:31:30 - ok
79. 00:04:28:36 / 00:04:34:81 - run it it'll scan your system and it
80. 00:04:31:30 / 00:04:36:18 - will show you a list of updates that can
81. 00:04:34:81 / 00:04:39:61 - be installed in the computer and then
82. 00:04:36:18 / 00:04:41:90 - you just click block on them next thing
83. 00:04:39:61 / 00:04:47:91 - we want to show you is basically how to
84. 00:04:41:90 / 00:04:50:81 - manually install this update okay
85. 00:04:47:91 / 00:04:54:43 - because in case you weren't able to
86. 00:04:50:81 / 00:04:58:28 - install it using the normal techniques
87. 00:04:54:43 / 00:05:02:31 - of automatically updates here we get
88. 00:04:58:28 / 00:05:09:24 - basically we need to go to the Microsoft
89. 00:05:02:31 / 00:05:14:80 - website and it's www.vodkacruise.com and
90. 00:05:09:24 / 00:05:18:43 - then within there you can type in the KB
91. 00:05:14:80 / 00:05:22:68 - that you're looking for in our instance
92. 00:05:18:43 / 00:05:26:34 - we want the 64-bit one the full version
93. 00:05:22:68 / 00:05:30:87 - okay which is the bigger one and that is
94. 00:05:26:34 / 00:05:35:70 - over there okay so 64 bit and it's 934
95. 00:05:30:87 / 00:05:38:11 - click download a pop-up will come and
96. 00:05:35:70 / 00:05:40:65 - now depending on your browser you might
97. 00:05:38:11 / 00:05:46:75 - need to right-click on it and then say
98. 00:05:40:65 / 00:05:51:72 - Save Link As or in case of edge what
99. 00:05:46:75 / 00:05:53:01 - happens is it just says click Save we're
100. 00:05:51:72 / 00:05:56:86 - gonna cancel this because I've already
101. 00:05:53:01 / 00:06:01:20 - downloaded it and normally where it goes
102. 00:05:56:86 / 00:06:03:75 - it goes to your downloads folder over
103. 00:06:01:20 / 00:06:06:37 - there we just took it from there and
104. 00:06:03:75 / 00:06:08:68 - brought it to our desktop once we do
105. 00:06:06:37 / 00:06:10:12 - have that file the technique should be
106. 00:06:08:68 / 00:06:11:80 - quite simple all you really need to do
107. 00:06:10:12 / 00:06:16:36 - is just double click on it and then
108. 00:06:11:80 / 00:06:19:36 - click OK or yes to install it sometimes
109. 00:06:16:36 / 00:06:23:28 - you will find a corruption and this
110. 00:06:19:36 / 00:06:27:62 - might be one of the reasons why you're
111. 00:06:23:28 / 00:06:31:12 - actually having issues with this update
112. 00:06:27:62 / 00:06:34:02 - so we're gonna go open up our file
113. 00:06:31:12 / 00:06:40:10 - explorer go to windows
114. 00:06:34:01 / 00:06:43:82 - scroll down to software distribution and
115. 00:06:40:10 / 00:06:48:84 - download what sometimes happens is there
116. 00:06:43:82 / 00:06:52:07 - might be a previous half download of an
117. 00:06:48:83 / 00:06:53:81 - update and that causes problems so what
118. 00:06:52:07 / 00:06:59:90 - I'm gonna do I'm just gonna select all
119. 00:06:53:81 / 00:07:03:62 - and delete it'll ask you to give admin
120. 00:06:59:91 / 00:07:06:93 - permissions you're lucky
121. 00:07:03:62 / 00:07:10:52 - everything went through sometimes you'll
122. 00:07:06:93 / 00:07:13:05 - find certain files or folders don't like
123. 00:07:10:52 / 00:07:17:81 - to be deleted no matter how many times
124. 00:07:13:05 / 00:07:20:24 - you say yes I accept it doesn't the
125. 00:07:17:81 / 00:07:26:31 - solution for that is very simple
126. 00:07:20:24 / 00:07:28:88 - properties security advanced in this

134. 00:07:47:87 / 00:07:55:25 - shall we say disable inheritance that
135. 00:07:51:36 / 00:07:58:59 - does help remove all inherited and we're
136. 00:07:55:25 / 00:08:01:74 - left with that and then just to make
137. 00:07:58:58 / 00:08:04:19 - sure it's full control you click Edit
138. 00:08:01:74 / 00:08:10:43 - and make sure you're giving it full

141. 00:08:21:53 / 00:08:33:26 - control as well and ok yes now we should
142. 00:08:31:28 / 00:08:36:62 - be able to delete it and there it goes
143. 00:08:33:26 / 00:08:38:30 - if it did come up with needs admin
144. 00:08:36:62 / 00:08:43:82 - permissions you just click yes it would
