I'm not really sure why when you uninstall an update it's not immediately pending, but that appears to be the case. You may check windows update and see what all is there.
I knew what pending meant, I was just confused and thought it must mean something else because I was sure
I had no pending updates.
When you say "searching for all updates that are not installed" it's searching WinSxS right?
What if some have been tampered with? It's possible to uninstall updates you're not using. I think I may have uninstalled
deleted a few packages the other day. Why leave them hanging around? It's like cleaning a downloads folder really.
EDIT: WAIT A SECOND!
KB2976978 says it's installed in the installed updates list, but hidden in the uninstalled updates list!
Which could it be? I guess I'll unhide it and see if that changes anything...Edited by cookieboyeli - 9/9/15 at 12:31am
