Windows 10 users are grumpy over forced updates and unwanted apps.
Previous versions of Windows 10 forced users to make updates immediately-oftentimes, interrupting their workflow. The newest update provides prompts to install or delay updates, which can appear while you’re away from your computer. The results are unplanned updates that can cause users to lose work or disrupt workflow.

There are steps to remove this file, or you can contact Bit Perfection to debug your computer.
