    Hi, it didn’t work for me when i renamed the folder. here is the status :”the action can’t be completed because the folder or a file in it is open in another program”. I don’t know what another program is open.
    As per instruction from another site, Try to go to Windows Task Manager, then select Services tab. See if there is “wuauserv”, if yes, try to disable it by right click to the wuauserv process, then select Stop Service.
    I am unable to disable the service as it says operation not allowed.
    Please suggest.
