Tech Short: Uninstall Windows Update via Command Prompt

In my previous short I needed to remove a Windows update. This same update was causing similar issue where attempting to remove the update caused explorer to crash. This is where I turn to the handy elevated command prompt to assist me.

First this is open command prompt; running as Administrator. Issue the following: Where XXXXXXX represent the KB you are uninstalling.

wusa /uninstall /KB:XXXXXXX

You will notice windows update uninstalling

Restart if required – Done
