It has been a while now since Microsoft has started pushing cumulative updates to its supported operating systems on the second Tuesdays of every month.

What’s wrong with KB4457128?

Well, people are reporting that this update gets installed twice on their machines. Well, there is not much of major harm that this update causes to the computer, but it is a matter of concern as it is not normal at all.

One user created a Microsoft Answers Community thread, and people have posted their opinion about this over there. A Windows Insider wrote,

“This is what happens with MS not giving these CU to Insiders on Just Fixes as they once did prior to releasing. This could have been prevented. Now the whole world has to deal with this.”

William Hartman from the Windows team responded in the thread as the users to post on the Feedback Hub,

“Can I get one of you to make a FBH post about it and share it? Then whoever else is experiencing it as well upvote and update it if you could.

I’ll take that link and share it with the engineers who will check into it further.”

What makes this weirder is that Windows 10 prompts for the installation of this update only once. You can read the post on Answers.

What about you? Do you see two entries for KB4457128 in your Windows 10 Update History?
