KB4023057 Not Installing in Windows 10/11? How to Fix

Many Windows users have recently reported that they cannot install the KB4023057 after downloading it. For a variety of reasons, the update cannot be installed. Such as:

  • Difficulties with the internet connection
  • Damaged system files
  • Problems with the Windows Update service
  • Compatibility and update concerns are common with security software and VPN users
  • Version problems can often be caused by a prior update that was flawed and had viruses in it
  • Missing that was necessary for the installation operation

You need to find the root cause of the problem to fix the performance difficulties and install the updates on the system, which is why these issues prohibit Windows updates from downloading and installing.

Fix 1. Troubleshooting Windows Update

One of the first fixes on our list is troubleshooting Windows Update because most of them come with security updates. Security concerns are the most serious mistakes a company can make since viruses or hackers can exploit them. Follow the steps below to troubleshoot Windows Update:

Step 1. To access the Windows Settings, press the Windows key plus I.

Step 2. Choose "Troubleshoot" from the "Update & troubleshooting" drop-down menu.

Step 3. To see all the available troubleshooter lists, choose the "Additional troubleshooters" link from the drop-down menu.

Fix 2. Run the DISM and SFC Scans

The second fix on our list is the 'Run the DISM and SFC scans.' Now, why do you need to do so? DISM and SFC are responsible for identifying and correcting faulty files in the component store of the Windows system image, allowing SFC to function correctly. Follow the steps below to run the DISM, and SFC scans:

Step 1. Start the program using the command prompt as an administrator.

Step 2. The following command should be entered: DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /restorehealth.

run DISM commands

Step 3. After finishing the procedure, use the following command: sfc /scannow.

run sfc commands

Step 4. Allow the system file checker application to discover and restore any missing system files on your computer.

Step 5. Restart the computer if necessary.

Fix 3. Disable Unnecessary Programs in the Startup

If you are unable to solve your problem even after running the DISM and SFC scans, the next thing to do is to try and disable unnecessary programs in startups. Why? There can be programs running in the background that can slow down your installation. Some starting items do not have a shortcut in the Startup folder, which is a problem.

You can deactivate them by using either the Startup apps/tasks tool in Settings or the Task Manager to do the necessary actions. They are only available via registration if they are not already registered. If you are new or uncomfortable with registry modification, you should use these programs.

Step 1. Select "Task Manager" from the context menu by right-clicking on a space on the taskbar.

Step 2. When Task Manager appears, choose the "Startup" tab and go through the list of applications and apps enabled to run when the computer is first booted up.

Step 3. To prevent them from running, choose the program and click the "Disable" button or right-click on one and select "Disabled" from the context menu that appears.

Fix 4. Reset Windows Update Components

The last fix on our list is the 'Reset Windows Update Components' one. If the Windows Update agent-related services fail to work, a problem with the update cache or the specific components get destroyed, and it is common for customers to face this kind of problem.

In these situations, restarting Windows Update on Windows 10 will generally address most errors. Follow the steps below:

Step 1. Open the CMD by searching for it.

run CMD

Step 2. Make sure you're signed in as an administrator before going any further.

Step 3. Use the following command to end the Windows update service: net stop wuauserv to terminate the Windows update service.

Step 4. Enter net stop bits to bring the background intelligent transfer service to a close.

Step 5. Go to the following site if possible: C:\\Windows\\SoftwareDistribution\\Download.

Step 6. Delete whatever is included inside the folder's contents.

Step 7. To select all of the files on your computer, press CTRL + A on your keyboard, accompanied by Delete to remove the documents.

Step 8. Net start wuauserv and net start bits commands must be used to re-start the operations once they have been interrupted.
