Can't install KB3081455 Windows Update on Windows 10?

Recommended Posts

Can't install KB3081455 Windows Update on Windows 10?  There's probably a simple, stupid reason why.  Thankfully, there's a simple solution.



What most likely causes the problem is, believe it or not, moving or deleting default Windows shortcuts from the Start Menu.  Yes, believe it or not!  :rolleyes:



To fix, don't try any of those unnecessarily complicated steps Microsoft will uselessly put you through.  Try this first: simply run System File Checker.  Open an elevated Command Prompt and run SFC /SCANNOW  Then, try downloading and installing the update again.



If that doesn't work, you may need to delete your old Windows Update folder.  See my older post about stopping various services and deleting folders.
