@D3add3d I definitely could've spent some more time messing with the BIOS, but I'd have to reinstall eventually anyway, so I'm installing something I can control more easily.
@Nilsen02 I disabled everything that could possibly be related to it in Windows, but I think the update it's trying to apply has already been queued somehow so it's out of Windows Update's hands. The system is so old and broken, it always fails to apply it, so it keeps repeating.
