You can't uninstall an update if it hasn't been installed yet - lol

✔ Best Answer
Restart the computer.
Download Tweaking.com to repair your computer (either required system files or Windows Update Engine need repair).
Run (download if necessary) Malwarebytes - free version and remove anything it finds.
The same with ADWCleaner and Junk Ware Removal Tool
Restart in Safe Mode.
Run Tweaking.com (Important! Run all pre-scan items recommended). This may take a while but well worth it.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

There is a chance that this will unstick it and allow it to move forward:

Turn off computer and remove power cord. If it's a laptop remove the main battery too. Finally discharge the motherboard components by holding the Power Off/On button in for at least 20 seconds (keep the power removed for this).

See if it does any better when you put things back to normal and power on.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
