I ran the norton removal 2 hours ago, my defender is up to date .. I just updated it right now. But it also updated this morning and again around 6 this evening. 

In this update there was adobe flash player, defender, windows malicious tool remover, a windows 10 update and the cumulative update.....all the other updates are gone the only one left is the cumulative update.  

I have Windows Defender & Malwarebytes 3.0 on my laptop and my desktop, and Windows firewall is my only firewall....so they aren't the problem.

I have the newest Google Chrome as a browser, but the Edge is still on here too. Everything on my laptop is running the same on my desktop. 

I only use the tools built into Windows to clean my PC's 

The KB4015438 updated on 3/22/17 

I have never had this problem with any Windows update, that's why I'm very frustrated.

I understand & empathize with your frustration.

1. I ran the norton removal 2 hours ago

2. KB4015438 updated on 3/22/17 

3a-c. [no answer]

4. Malwarebytes 3.0

5. [no answer]

6. I have the newest Google Chrome as a browser

7. [NO]

Please answer-by-number (like you see in the quote box above), not a run-on paragraph. THX

1. What Definitions versions are currently listed in Defender's Update tab?

2. What Definitions last updated date?

3. What happens when you click on the UPDATE button on that tab?

4. When & why was MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware (MBAM) 3.0 installed on the computer-in-question? Have you purchased MBAM or...? Has MBAM ever detected & quarantined anything since it's been installed?

5a. Open Edge (not Chrome!) to this page => http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/

5b. What Flash Player version is displayed in the VERSION INFORMATION box on that page?

6. Is Google Chrome version 57.0.2987.133 (or higher) installed? [Yes, I wanna know the version, not just "the newest."]

7. Have you run the Windows Update troubleshooter since you ran the Norton Removal Tool?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

COMMENT: Over the years we've learned that sometimes it's too late for the Norton (and/or McAfee) removal tool to "come to the rescue." This may be another one of those times. Ideally, you would have run the Norton Removal Tool when you were still running Win7 and well before you upgraded to Win10.

OPTION OF LAST RESORT: You may obtain third-party, Microsoft-sponsored - but not necessarily free - support via the Answer Desk => http://answerdesk.microsoftstore.com

That's all I got. Wish I'd had better news/other ideas. Good luck.
