This is an isolated update to a previous question I asked regarding the same issue

Ok, so I didn't take @syseng21 's advice(sry) and continued troubleshooting...

While trying to uninstall previous windows updates, I found that the Tiworker.exe(Windows Module Installer) that had been showing abnormal behaviour was located in the folder of a recent update...particularly, Servicing Stack 10.0.19041.1081(and funnily, its installation date roughly matches my comp break down date)

Control Panel Windows Updates Screen(try finding uninstall this update)

So, I tried uninstalling it, but guess what.....It doesnt uninstall :((

Now, wishfully thinking that I (by God's grace) have nearly identified the problem..Can anyone help me in uninstalling it or cleaning my pc of this..thing

Thanks again

EDIT1 (16/7/21) : So yeah, heeding @Ramhound and @syseng21, I reinstalled windows on my pc...and well, by god's grace, it is working..

So, only advice- just reinstall windows if it doesn't work..

Thanks to all for trying to answer this question

    You can't remove Service Stack updates they are required. You cannot remove the SSU from the system after installation.. The only way forward would be to perform an in-place repair with a Windows 10 ISO for 19041 (2004)

  • However, instead of reinstalling 2004 and having to upgrade to 20H2 with an enablement package, I would download an 21H1 ISO and upgrade to that. Of course this assumes your overall issue of being unable to delete any file off your SSD prevents that upgrade. If it does then a clean install is your only choice (which is a well documented procedure)

  • The update you are asking about in this question cannot be removed. I am happy to submit that as an answer, but this question, is specifically about removing an update that cannot be removed. There is no fixing this problem without reinstalling Windows due to your other issue of being unable to delete anything on your SSD.

  • About that....well...forgot to update this but after the removal of those sneaky malwares from my pc...the SSD has become surprisingly responsive compared to previous times(sometimes it throws some tantrums but restarting helps)...so, is there a solution considering my SSD supports read write commands??

So, I tried uninstalling it

You can't remove Service Stack updates they are required to receive future updates through Windows Update.

Running Windows Update Standalone Installer (wusa.exe) with the /uninstall switch on the combined package will not work because the combined package contains the SSU. You cannot remove the SSU from the system after installation.

Can anyone help me in uninstalling it

The Servicing Stack 10.0.19041.1081 cannot be uninstalled from your system. The only way forward would be to perform an in-place repair with a Windows 10 ISO for 19041 (2004). However, instead of reinstalling 2004 and having to upgrade to 20H2 with an enablement package, I would download an 21H1 ISO and upgrade to that. If the issue you describe with your SSD prevents you from performing an in-place upgrade then your only option is to do a clean install of Windows 10.

I found the solution!

Had the same problem as you've mentioned above. None of my programmes worked since the last update.

Found a site that helped me solve my problem! www.makeuseof.com

These instructions are also mentioned in the link that I listed above:

"Type Command Prompt (Admin) in the Start menu search bar, then right-click and select Run as administrator to open an elevated Command Prompt. Type the following command and press Enter: DISM /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth. Wait for the command to complete. The process can take up to 20 minutes, depending on your system's health. The process seems stuck at certain times, but wait for it to complete. When the process completes, type sfc /scannow and press Enter."

  • Hej! Nah, that solution was only temporary. What I just found out what happened to mine. I tried to uninstall my gpu overclock program and then it worked.

  • I was skeptical of this answer but after Servicing Stack 10.0.19041.1161 crippled my computer I was desperate and decided to try it. (Simple commands like git status were taking 8-10 seconds to complete.) Your answer restored my machine to its normal speed. Thank you!

Run this below command prompt with admin privileges.
which will remove your the installed servicing stack update.

Command: dism /Online /Remove-Package /PackageName:Package_for_RollupFix~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~~19041.1110.1.15
