Windows Update includes tasks to repair itself, because it's a critical part of Windows.

WaaS stands for 'Windows as a Service' - that's how Windows 10 is different from earlier versions of Windows. Windows 10 is delivered as a service, while earlier versions were discrete products.

Medic is just slang for healing. A medic, as you probably know, is another term for a doctor.

WaasMedic is one of the utilities that try to repair Windows Update when it gets damaged.

Searching the internet is a skill worth developing. With the right search term and a discerning eye there is a world of valuable information. Unfortunately, it takes practice to craft the right search term and time to develop a discerning eye.

Just a regular guy, with no fancy titles or boasts.
