Possibly a security software problem? For some reason blocking an update then windows update tries to update again.

lotvic , that's a good find on the other post. I thought it might have been Norton up to its old tricks. Possibly try SAS portable in safe mode without internet. It might clear or at least disable the bug so Malwarebytes can be installed and run in normal mode.
