    If a Windows Update fails should I just ignore it or try to update again? Usually I have just ignore it but it never seems to update again. This is the info n the one I was curious about today:

    Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool x64 - v5.90 (KB890830)

    Installation date: ‎6/‎8/‎2021 10:39 PM

    Installation status: Failed

    Error details: Code 800706BE

    Update type: Important

    After the download, this tool runs one time to check your computer for infection by specific, prevalent malicious software (including Blaster, Sasser, and Mydoom) and helps remove any infection that is found. If an infection is found, the tool will display a status report the next time that you start your computer. A new version of the tool will be offered every month. If you want to manually run the tool on your computer, you can download a copy from the Microsoft Download Center, or you can run an online version from microsoft.com. This tool is not a replacement for an antivirus product. To help protect your computer, you should use an antivirus product.

    I'd ignore that particular one. In all the years I downloaded that monthly update, it NEVER found anything. I don't consider it very useful so eventually I ignored that monthly update,

    Isn't that like saying you didn't bother putting new batteries in your smoke detectors because you never had a fire?

    Not even close.
    In MS's own words
    I run Malwarebytes Pro and MS Security Essentials so it isn't as if I have no software protecting me against malware.

    Just because it's not a replacement, doesn't mean that it needs to be ignored.
