  • Uninstall Windows Update

    Does anyone know how to uninstall a Windows Update remotely using a vbscript?

    Basically I would like to indicate which Windows Update and make sure it uninstalls without rebooting.

    Thanks,

    Re: Uninstall Windows Update

    How are you deploying these updates in the first place? If you use WSUS then you can uninstall it from the WSUS console if the update supports it.
    Otherwise, you could try to batch the removal (Again if the update itself supports it) with spuninst.exe

    %Windir%\$NtUninstallKBnnnnnn$\spuninst\spuninst.e xe"

      Yeah I tried this a little while ago through vbscript, but ran into permissions issues. I was trying to install updates instead of removing them, but same idea. See this thread:

      You might be able to modify the HTA to uninstall an update.
