Unable to uninstall Value Added Package

Question: Unable to uninstall Value Added Package

The newest version of the Value Added Package asks you to uninstall the old one. But when attempting to uninstall it gives "error reading setup init. file".
Is there any way to force uninstall?

Preferred Solution: Unable to uninstall Value Added Package

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Unable to uninstall Value Added Package

Hi there,

unfortunately there is no way to force uninstall. But when thinking logically you could try the following:

Try to open and to exctract the VAP and copy the *.ini files into the VAP folder on your harddisk. If this does not work then the only chance would be to recover your machine and install the newest VAP. This should work then...

ı didnt find value added package for vista x64... could you help me? my notebook is toshiba a200 ah.. thank you

Answer:value added package for x64 vista

The closest thing I can think of to a "value added" package is Ultimate Extras. I didn't find a 'valueadd' folder on the Vista DVD. What's usually in there anyway? Some extra cursors and a Weezer video?

I'm having issues (the media buttons won't work anymore) with the Toshiba Added Value Package (TAVP) on my M800 Portege.
I want to update it but I can't without first removing the old version of the TAVP. When I try to install the new TAVP, I get an error message saying that I have to remove the old version first.

Trouble is, I can't find the TAVP on my 'add/remove programs' list. The internet said it should be on the list but it's not. The program(s) are on my computer.

They just don't seem to be listed as "Added Value Package" programs. How do I remove the TAVP?

Answer:Re: How do you delete the Added Value Package?

You can clean the uninstall information using various software tools. One is CCleaner (Tools -> Uninstall). Google search "CCleaner"

Having read [here |] that there is a problem with the hot-keys not working after upgrading the "Toshiba Value Added Package" in *Qosmio F45* models, let me ask you if someone have succesfully installed the latest version of the software (1.1.7) and have no problems with the keys.

I have just installed SP1 on my Vista Premius system. Should I expect problems with VAP?

Answer:Need Value Added Package for Vista 64bit

Could you please post some info?s about your notebook model?

Usually all drivers, tools and Toshiba software should be released on the Toshiba European page.

If you cannot find the compatible software, in your case VAP then this would mean that this software has not been released by Toshiba.

PS; I doubt that VAP is needed for BIOS update?
The BIOS should be update from running Windows system?

Does anybody know whether toshiba are going to release x64 compatible tools. I need them because I'm planing to purchase vista for x64.

Answer:Toshiba Value Added Package for Vista x64

As far as I know Toshiba will publish only the 32bit driver. 64bit are not available.
In the past Toshiba did not publish the 64bit XP drivers and I think it?s the same with Vista drivers.

Just for info: Toshiba does not deliver any notebooks with 64bit Vista ;)

Hi i got a bit of a problem.

I've got Vista GamerEdition 64-bit OS. And a Toshiba - Satellite Pro U400-13G, system specs:

Core 2 duo P8400, 2.26 ghz
Intel HD 4500 Graphics
Conexant HD Audio

Now, when i try to install Toshiba Value Added Package, i get this error in the very end of the installation:


... and the setup fails.

But the install has copied the files to my "C:\Program Files (x86)\TOSHIBA" folder, iv'e got:

Bluetooth Monitor
Power Saver

... in my Toshiba folder, containing a total of 52,4mb. In the utility folder, i try to run "TACSPROP.exe" and is told that "Registry is missing or may be broken".

now... i know this problem most likely because i have a modded version of Vista, but does anyone have an idea as to how i can make Value Added Package run on my system?.

Answer:Value Added Package install failed...

I agree with you. You have modified Vista version. I presume that Toshiba software department create each tool and utility for Vista and of course test it properly.
None of offered versions is not designed to run with version you use.

VAP cannot be modified by everyone and there is nothing you can do. If you use some ?exotic? OS version either it works or not. Sorry but there is nothing you can do with VAP.

I want to install the pilot vap 200801091. But when I try to do it after the ZIP I have this message : "An other version of this product is installed so desinstalled it before in the configuration".

So is it necessary to deinstall Toshiba value added package and to reinstall the three programms : TVAP(V1.1.7) for 2button model, TVAP(V1.1.7) for 6button model and TVAP(V1.1.7) for no button model?


Answer:How to install Vista Value Added package

Well, as you already said the Toshiba Value added package must be removed firstly!
This can be done in the control panel -> software

After you have removed this Toshiba software and have rebooted the notebook you could start the installation of Toshiba Value added package.

Regarding your question about 2 or 6 button version;
Please check firstly how many Toshiba Controls button are supported on your notebook (without the power button)
If your notebook supports 2 Toshiba Controls buttons then install only the TVAP for 2 button model.

Best regards

Belatedly, for various reasons (primarily uncertainty and a concern that I would mess up the computer at an inconvenient moment), I've only got round to a second attempt at installing the Value Added Package update published on 9 Jan 2008 (with various other more recent driver updates to be installed when I've done that). I used 'Add and Remove Programs' to remove the existing Toshiba Value Added Package, cleaned the Registry with CCleaner (as advised) - and ultimately all the other Registry cleaners I had accumulated on the system! - but was still getting an error message that a version of the software was already installed and needed to be removed before installation could proceed.

Looking further at the description of the Package, and at the Toshiba software included in the 'All Programs' list, it looks as though I might be needing also to uninstal Toshiba Utilities. Is that correct? Is there any other software I will have to uninstal to allow January's Value Added Package to instal successfully?

And finally, I was confused when I unzipped the files and found there was both a "setup.exe" and "toshiba Value Added..." I wasn't sure which to click on - but found that both led to the same injunction that there was another version on the disk that I must first uninstal.

I guess what I really need is an "idiot's guide" to installing Toshiba's driver updates: can anybody point me in the direction of one?

Answer:Installing Value Added Package upgrade

Hi there,

if your system is still saying you have left over parts of the old VAP then first you must re-install the old version of TVAP so to make sure that the uninstall entry appears in the Add/Remove Programs List. then uninstall the old version and restart your computer. after restarting, install the new version making sure that you select the setup file and not toshiba VAP...the first setup file that you come across (the one i just stated you select) will determine the appropriate configuration of TVAP to install for your system. then after installing, restart your system and everything should be working just fine. you can try uninstalling toshiba utilities but really you should not need to.

I have Toshiba Qosmio F50-12J and have trouble with Value Added Package v 1.2.28.

I can't get the flash cards to work. When I press FN key nothing happens. BTW, I installed VAP on freshly installed Windows 7 64 bit. With the previuos version of VAP that I tried on Windows 7, KeNotify.exe was crashing. Now there is no apparent crash, but nothing happens.

Also, there is a problem with the Button Support utility (touch sensitive controls). Whenever I reboot my system, all the white illumiation LEDs on my laptop are lit although I turned them off.

So, could someone confirm that they have a working Value Added Package v 1.2.28 on Windows 7 64bit ?

Answer:Re: Qosmio F50-12J - FN key not working with new Value Added Package


I had the same problem on my Qosmio F50. The solution is that you only have to install ?Flash Cards Support Utility?. This tool is designed for Vista but I have noticed that it also works on Windows 7. Just check the Toshiba page where you can download it: > Support & Downloads > Download Drivers

Furthermore the illumination buttons are working fine on my F50. Can you use them properly or what happens exactly if you press one of them?

By the way: There are two different BIOS version on the Toshiba website. Are you using the BIOS for Windows 64bit? Check this!!!

Toshiba Tempo alert shows an upgrade is available for the VAP.
Downloading this upgrade gives three packages which are options for 'nobutton', '2button' or '6button' -what exactly are these references to?
Has anyone tried this upgrade which indicates the prior version of VAP needs to be uninstalled before the new one is installed, is there a way back if it fails?

Answer:Sat Pro A200 Value Added Package upgrade

Which version you download only depends on the machine and not on the previous version. So, the version depends on the multimedia buttons which are installed on your machine on the (right/left/top) on your machine.

So if you don?t have any buttons then choose the "nobutton" version and so on....

The upgrade is OK, there won?t be any situation to fall back. This upgrade was intended to make the system work better and I don?t think that toshiba releases some programs just for fun.

Install it and be happy.

Hello Technician,

could someone explain me, how to install the vap on the Satellite Pro C70-B-12C.
I have installed Windows 7 on the new Machine and would like to use the Function-Key-Utility.

I have downloaded the compatible vap on the driver download site. In the next Step I tried to install the vap over the Toshiba Archive Extractor. If I let Install it automatically, I?m only get the Windows ODBC Driver-Installation. So I canceled the ODBC Driver-Installation and start up the Setup from the extracted archive.

After the Installation complete, the Function Keys and the Flash Card Utility can be used. But the Flash Card Utilty displays wrong functions on the assigned Keys. e.g. on the Keyboard the F11-Button shows the Function for on/off the Speaker.

The Flash Card Utility shows for the same Function (on/off speaker) the ESC-Button. After the Installation of the vap none of the called buttons are working.

I?ve tested the Function Key Utility for Windows 8.1. But this test was useless.

Thank you for your Help!

Answer:Satellite Pro C70-B-12C - Value Added Package installation


The VAP installation is not very complicated.
You need to download the package.
Save it on the HDD (desktop) and to unzip the package (right click unzip)

I?m wondering what you mean by ?install over????

As I said above, after clean Windows 7 installation, you could install the VAP. But firstly this package has to be unzipped. To unzip the package you could use a software like WinRAR or WinZip

Tosiba Tecra A8 PTA83E
Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate X64

I've been unable to install the Toshiba Value Added Pack (vap-vista-1011btn-en) or any version before it. I have spoke to Tosh tech support on numerous occasions and they always promise Customer Support will respond to the query, they never do.

Toward the end of the installation, whilst it is running the "Computing space requirements" process an error dialogue box pops containing "ID_ERR_NOTINSTALLVALZ_MESSAGE". The only option available is "ok" and when this is selected the install rolls back and the finish screen says "The wizard was interrupted before TOSHIBA Value Added Package could be completely installed".

I am, as I am sure you can understand, VERY frustrated with this problem. I purchased (the very expensive) Vista Ultimate as Toshiba claim this Laptop is Vista ready, and it may well be, but the drivers and software provided are not. I am also having problems with:

I?m not very surprised that you are not able to install the Toshiba Vista Value Added Package.

In my knowledge the 32bit drivers don?t run on the 64bit Vista OS!

But from my experience Toshiba VAP contains some applications which control some notebook features like FN keys for example.

I wonder if anyone noticed this. They are offering an update of the value added package dated 08/01/2008 form my Qosmio G30 HD-DVD (PQ31). The file reference is I downloaded and installed the utilities contained in the zipped file, but now when I startup my laptop with Vista Ultimate, the following are reported as incompatible with my system version: Toshiba Power Saver, Toshiba Zooming Utility, Toshiba Wireless Hotkeys Utility, Toshiba Raid Utility, Toshiba Controls, Toshiba Touchpad Utility, Toshiba Utilities & lastly Intel ProSet Wireless Driver.

After checking the zipped file I noticed that the setup files are designated for the PQ-32 not my PQ-31!

Could that be the problem or is it that Toshiba does not support Vista Ultimate? Feedback would be greatly appreciated

P.S. I guess this question should be addressed to Toshiba direct but they strangely omit to give an address for feedback.


Answer:Qosmio G30 HD-DVD (PQ31): Updated Value Added Package

Hello Zaki

Please do not be mad on me but what you wrote is noting but absolute nonsense. There is no difference between Vista versions and all Toshiba designed tools, utilities or packages are ?universal? and can be installed on every Vista version.

Qosmio G30 is pretty long on the market and you are the first one who reports something like this. I am really asking myself why?

VAP is the same for both Qosmio models and there is no difference. PAxxx number is different but the platform is the same and there is no reason for making two different VAPs.

To be honest one thing is interesting for me: how you got message ?the following are reported as incompatible with my system version??

Before you try to install VAP already preinstalled must be removed at first. If you make clean Vista Ultimate installation there should not be problems at all, just follow installations order.

Called Toshiba who advised I download the VAP folder via which I have done. Its now sitting on my desktop.

Normally you can disable or enable the touchpad in the Synaptics driver.
Go to the control panel => Mouse => device settings => settings
Furthermore for disable/enable the Touch pad you need the Touch pad utility. You can download this package on the Toshiba website.

Make also an update of the Hot Key Utilities.

While waiting for solution you can try to reinstall both ?not working? tools.

I've had a problem with the flashcards crashing ever since I got my A100 about 2 years ago. Today I finally downloaded the update for the VAP and tried to install it. I received an error message telling me to remove the old VAP first. When I try to do that through the control panel, the installer (uninstaller?) seems to be working according the task manager but the progress bar never changes and the computer silence also hints that nothing is really happening. I've tried this twice already, leaving it running for 30 minutes each time.

I have 3 questions:

1. Can I update the VAP any other way?
2. Can I solve the flashcard crash problem any other way?
3. Can anyone explain the flashcards to me in simple terms? Why are they important (or useful)? I don't really understand them and never use them but have read about problems if they're removed.

Please answer in novice terms.

Answer:Satellite A100 - How to reinstall the Value Added Package?


As far as I know the Toshiba Value Added Package can only be updated if you remove the old version first. I also recommend this way.
But maybe you should try to remove the Value Added Package with CCleaner. This program cleans the registry and system. So install it and clean the system. After this try again to remove the VAP.

The VAP contains the following important tools:
- TOSHIBA Components Common Driver is an essential component of Windows Vista. It is required to make the other TOSHIBA original programs work properly.
- TOSHIBA Power Saver controls power consumption by switching to optimum power settings, based on whether the machine is plugged in or on battery power, and based on the remaining battery power.

When i'm installing the Value Added Package no my m100-164 running Windows Vista Business i get the following error: "ID-ERR-NOTINSTALLTVALTZ-MESSAGE" and the installation is rolling back the changes.
It happens even when during the installation i select to install the basic toshiba utility. Is there something with my software or did it happen also to someone else?

Answer:Cannot install Vista Value Added Package successful

What is the version of vista you are using? 32 or 64 bit? I get this error when installing on the x64 bit vista - no support for it. On the 32bit it works perfectly and is even very nice.

I recently bought a Satellite P755-103. In order to keep the drivers updated, I downloaded Toshiba Value Added Package from the downloads section of the Toshiba webpage. (2 times, I'm sure the driver is for my 64bit version of Windows 7).
When I was trying to install it, I had the repair and the remove options. Repair gave me this error: RegDBGetItem Failed (1). So I totally removed the driver so that I could properly install it again. During the installation of the driver I got the same error, so I couldn't install it, so now I'm unable to activate the hotkeys that TVAP gives me acess to.

If anyone know about something that could help with this problem please say something, it would be very apreciated.
Sorry about my english.


Answer:Satellite P755-103 - Can't install Value Added Package


Is the Value Added Package still listed in software list of Windows? If yes I would recommend removing it. Then restart your notebook and try installing VAP again.

If it doesn?t work I would try CCleaner. That?s a nice freeware tool to clean up the registry. You can find the tool using Google. Just run the registry cleaner and then you should be able to install VAP.

Generally speaking it?s not necessary updating drivers if everything is ok. If you don?t have any problems you can forget such updates. ;)

I?ve reinstalled VAP many times and have never seen something like this.
When VAP is removed from the system notebook must be restarted and then you can install latest VAP version.

I'm running a new Satellite A300, Vista Home Premium.
I wasn't able to run PC-Diagnose and the volume button wasn't working so I uninstalled the existing value added package, restarted the system and tried to reinstall with the latest version.

The install failed. I tried about four times with three newly downloaded files.

Is there anything I can do to get the install to complete?



Answer:Satellite A300 - Value Added Package install fails


I?m not quite sure why you are not able to install the VAP.
I was successful to install it.

As mentioned, you have to uninstall the old version, then download the new, right version from the Toshiba page and execute the exe file.
That?s all?

In many cases such issues is NOT related to the applications which you are trying to install but to the Windows OS?. mostly it?s muddled up and therefore such installation fails.

In your case I recommend cleaning the OS using the CCleaner and if necessary to reinstall the OS in order to fix this.

First I'd like to say, that I've used my Toshiba Portege R830 with all operating systems since win 7 and I have never installed fresh OS.
That said, I couldnt use Intel WiDi on Win10 and had to go back to Win8 (DVD of which I have luckily bought along with upgrading).

I have installed all toshiba software using upgrade assistant and for the first time since 2011' there was no Flash Cards available (dropdown menu shown with use of Fn keys). I have used it for like 2,5 years on Win 8/8.1 and now its gone and is not available to install...

WTF? After a week I found out that Flash Cards isnt present in VAP 1.6 (only in 1.5.X.X and earlier).
Unfortunately I cannot install only Flash Cards standalone (or can I?).

And here comes my question: If I install VAP 1.5 (with Flash Cards), can I (ANYHOW) upgrade some elements (like system driver) without uninstalling previous version of VAP?

From my experience when I run VAP 1.6 installer first thing it does is complete uninstall of previous versions.

Please help me! I cant imagine who thought that removing flash cards from 1.6 would be a good idea...

Answer:Portege R830 - Win 8.1 Value Added Package (Flash Cards)

Toshiba EU driver page provides the Toshiba Function Key Utility v1.00.6626.03 for Windows 8 Upgrade.

So if you installed Value Added Package 1.6.0130?. you have to install also the Toshiba Function Key Utility

As the name already said it?s a Vista package and was designed ONLY for Vista!!!

Usually the FN buttons are controller by Common Modules running Windows XP.

I have removed this checked and double checked in add and remove and it is no where to be found but still no success installing the new software.

Can anyone help me resolve this matter?


Answer:Satellite Pro L300 PSLB1E - How to install the Value added package?


Have you restarted your notebook after removing VAP from the system?

I have updated VAP on several notebooks and have never noticed something like this.
After removing VAP from the system new version was always installed properly.
I can imagine something is still in registry.
You can check it and try to remove manually.
Search all entries for ?Toshiba Value? and remove it.

If this will not work all you can do is to install OS again using recovery image. After clean installation remove VAP again, restart your notebook and install latest version.

I have a Portege R830-1DU and i'm very disappointed with Toshiba.

I have the Function Keys working on the first month of windows 8. wherever, an windows update broken that to me and after that the function kys doesn't work anymore.

I reformated the pc, i tryied everything i found on the web but the only thing i found its the Value Added Package or the Memory Card Controller is missing. i tryed to install and reinstall all the versions but it seems to be to 32bits and no 64bit version. So i have to wait for next version of TVAP

Windows 8 has been released a lot of months and i think the problem is not to hard to solve.

Is there any another way to get function keys back to live?

I've got a newly acquired A200-1YO (factory date 22 January, purchased Feb).

I registered for Tempo Alerts and was notified of several downloads available to me, including "vap- 20080109135106" TVAP(V1.1.7) for the Value Added Package.

I understand that in order to install it I would have to Uninstall the program already factory-loaded on to my machine and I don't want to do this (and risk something going wrong) unless its strictly necessary !

Is there a way of establishing whether the version on my machine (I can't see a version number but its shown as created on 10.10.07) is earlier or the same (later even !) than the available download ? (I've read on other forums that the release date of a download can often hide a much earlier date for some of the software it includes).

I downloaded it, and unzipped. It contains three options:
2 button, 6 button, no button yet there is no readme etc to tell me what version my P100-160 is.

I addition, attempting to install any of them gives me an error that there are older versions already installed which should be removed first.

Can someone please advise of which I should be using?

Answer:Question about Value Added Package update for Satellite P100-160

I got the same message,downloaded the file, guessed that my P100-160 was 2 button and got the same response. I looked at the Control Panel to see that the Toshiba VAP was indeed already installed, in my case dated 30/12/06 BUT with zero size shown against it. I tried to uninstall which started and then the wizard stopped saying interrupted (by whom??).

So I'm puzzled like you. I think I need this update because power options are not working properly but seem unable to install it. I've been advised to reformat the disc and start again but this would just give me the original image and presumably same uninstall problems.

Did you already tried to install an older version of the function button software on your system? I think maybe the new version is buggy and if not already a newer version is out, you should have the older version till a newer will be released.

Please check if the older version works, it shouldn?t be a big deal to download the single application from the Toshiba driver download site.

So as you can see the button support is included in this package. I don't know what is wrong on your notebook but when the VAP is installed properly the multimedia buttons and Flash cards should work properly.

Try please again to remove VAP from the system, restart the notebook and install latest offered version. This latest version works well on different notebook models (on my Satellite P200D too) and it must work on your too.

After a virus infection, I was able to recover and fix most issues.
SFC was not able to fix all files due to system catalog corruption.
I ran CheckSUR and fixed the missing files except for the two below.
I was unable to find these on a donor machine.

Unavailable repair files:

This is from a 64-bit Windows 7 Home SP1 installation.

Does anyone know where I can get these two files? Thanks

After upgrading to Windows 8.1, the extended settings for the camera (resolution and the like) disappeared from the Lenovo Settings app. The app correctly points out that I do not have the settings dependency package installed, but I have yet to find an installer for it that actually installs it (it points out that it's not a Thinkpad system). So, is there any way to return my camera to its former higher-quality resolution? If it helps, I'm running the latest drivers, and the lenovo settings app is v2.2~.

I've added a Windows 7 64 bit to my Vista 32 bit in a LAN network. Even though I have given everyone full access at the Vista, the 7 is unable to modify shared documents from the Vista. It can view them, but cannot modify.

Thank you.

I set up a local user account on a company laptop that was to be used for employees who needed a lap top temporarily. I later added the laptop to the domain so that users could also use their company credentials. However after putting the computer on the domain, the local guest user account doesn't work. I went in as an admin and played with the account, it is still there and nothing has been disabled. When logging in I insert the computer-name/guest and it claims the password or domain is wrong? I just set the password and the local computer domain name is right here in front of me nothing has been inserted wrong. Is this an issue that need's to be addressed in group policy (which I need to go to someone else for) or can I solve this on the local machine? Microsoft really needs to patch these domain issues or they need to give Windows Seven log in options the flexibility XP had. Just saying

Answer:Laptop unable to log into local user after I added it to the domain

Hi there,

To log on locally try Computer Name\User Name. If still didn't help try creating a new User Name from Computer Management (see attached image) and see if it helps. I have switched back and forth many times between domain and local and I never experienced an issue logging on either way.

After imaging (Win 7) a new X1 Carbon type 20FB-CTO1WW, I'm unable to use the USB ports nor am I able to connect to Internet (wifi or USB to Ethernet) due to missing drivers. Is there any way to enable the USBs in Windows without online access to drivers?


Go to Solution.

Answer:X1 Carbon - Unable to load drivers after custom image is added

Windows 7 does not have native support for the USB or networking hardware that is in the 20FB.
So you need to add the drivers for these devices into your Windows 7 install media.  Typically you would use MDT or SCCM for this, with the SCCM driver packs that we provide on the lenovo support website.  If you aren't experienced with these things, then my advice is to use the Lenovo Win7 factory preload which already includes all the drivers you need.

Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem' & 'iTunes was not installed properly. Please reinstall iTunes. Error 7 (Windows error 126)'.

When I try to uninstall iTunes I get this message 'The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable. Click OK to to try again or enter an alternate path to a folder containing the installation package 'iTunes6464.msi in the box below'

I have no idea what to do to resolve either problem. I'm not very technical so very simple language would be greatly appreciated.

Let's start with I'm a complete noob, but I'm smart and I know how to Google stuff...

I've tried SO many threads and techniques to fix this, but I'm unable to, this has been a VERY deep rabbit hole I've traversed and can't find my way back out.

Let's start at the beginning...

I stopped auto installing updates because I had issues with doing so in the past, so my windows updates stacked up for a bit. (I know, I suck!)

I started installing them all last month and found 4 that would not install, a couple of them seem to be serious and my friend recommend I get them fixed.

I've run sfc /scannow it NOW shows no validation errors. But there were errors the first time.Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.

Hi, I'm trying to add the November, 2016 Security Monthly Quality Rollup for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB3197868) to out install.wim using DISM offline because the same install is failing using the Scheduled Updates process in Config Manager.
Some pertinent (I think) lines from the DISM.log include:
DISM Package Manager: PID=2868 Failed while processing command add-package. - CPackageManagerCLIHandler::ExecuteCmdLine(hr:0x8000ffff)
DISM.EXE: DISM Package Manager processed the command line but failed. HRESULT=8000FFFF
Anyone seen this problem before or had success adding the Security Monthly Quality Rollup updates either via DISM or Scheduled Updates?
