But once you remove the offending KB update, how do you prevent Windows 10 from automatically installing it again surreptitiously andcausing the same problems all over again?

it would be useful if you could find out and post which kb number the update is that triggered this issue
With regard to this, here's the part of my "standard Windows 10 revival script" that will allow you to find out what your most recently installed updates are, whether you choose to uninstall them or not:

If you are experiencing unexpected issues immediately or very shortly after any Windows update has been applied, then the first thing you should do is use the Windows 10 built-in capability to uninstall the latest update that’s suspected of causing the issue:

1.         Open Settings, Update & Security.  This should take you to the Windows Update Pane by default.

2.       In the Windows Update Pane, locate the View update history control, and activate it.

3.        In the View Update History dialog, locate the Uninstall updates link and activate it.

4.       In the Installed Updates dialog, the updates will be listed in groupings, with the groups alphabetically ordered, and the items within each group ordered by date – most recently installed first (if no one has changed the defaults).  In most cases, you’ll be looking to uninstall a Microsoft Windows update, and those are generally the final group.  The number of updates available for uninstalling is shown in parentheses after the Microsoft Windows group name.

5.        Almost all Windows Updates will have a KB number associated with them, and if you know that use this as what you search on for the actual update.  Select it.

6.        Activate the Uninstall button located above the list of updates, and the selected update will be uninstalled.
