Cannot install updates since Nov. "Bad Pool Error"

Copper Contributor

I'm on Windows 10 17025.1000 installed on 11/6/2017


Updates keep failing since then.


I have Last failed install attempt on ‎2/‎2/‎2018 - 0xc1900101

I got a "Bad Pool Error"  then Windows reverted to 17025.1000 again...


I've tried sfc /scannow then checked for new drivers for devices, and I uninstalled Avira... 


No dice...
