How to uninstall all updates previously installed from Windows Update in a single shot?


After recently using the freshly installed Windows 7 computer, we have to customize and set up the computer according to the administrative definitions according to the access controls. After inspired to emphasize on enabling automatic installation of Windows updates, all seemed well until the update process had actually initiated. but the latest saw a dull experience with infrequent and unrecognized system breakdowns.

So, we decided to perform a full update of windows after realizing that they are guilty of the devastation.

given that it is not possible to uninstall a bazillion updates manually and cumulatively, I have to rely on an automatic programmed script stressed to uninstall these updates in the order until the end (thereby restoring debut)

any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you


Awesome... Thanks dude.

Some of the information do not show upward in your post, but I was able to understand.

  1. The list of updates:

    WMIC qfe get hotfixid > c:\list.txt
    (This you will get a list of all the updates that are currently installed.)
  2. Open C:\list.txt in Notepad. (Remove the first line, it's just the title)
  3. Generate the uninstall script:
    for /f %i in ('type c:\list.txt') do echo wusa /uninstall /kb:%i /quiet /norestart >> c:\uninstall.cmd
  4. Go to Edition > replace and set the following field values: (replace CTRL + H, "/ kb:KB" " with" / KB: "")
  5. Run the script that results.
  6. Restart the node.

NOTE: This is what should look like the syntax after you change with CTRL + H.

WUSA / uninstall /KB:981391/quiet /norestart

  • Export the contacts from Windows Mail in a single folder

    Original title: How can I export contacts from Windows Mail in a single folder. It seems that export all? Help!
    Trying to export contacts to a folder only in gmail, but cannot select one.


    There is no option in Windows Mail to export a specific contact group.
    You can export all contacts to Excel and edit/print as you wish.
    Follow these steps to export the Windows Mail Contacts to Excel:
    a. open Windows Contacts by clicking on the Start button, all programs, and then clicking Windows Contacts.
    b. on the toolbar, click on export and then click on the CSV format.
    CSV (Comma Separated Values). It is a format of generic file used to export or import information to and from databases or spreadsheets.
    c. click Export, select a folder where you want to store your contacts in the new format and then click OK.
    d. when a message appears telling you that the contacts export process is complete, click OK and then click Close.

  • My 3 windows machines all have product installed from their own records, HOW fake ID?

    I had huge problems the ast two years with system hostage. Nobody believed me if Microsoft has identified a problem, well, left me stuck! I hae a seven 32-bit bought vista Toshiba laptop 07, desktop Dell purchased Aug/sept 09 and a seven of Home premium purchased Acer Windows 7 64-bit 10. I keep get unidentified network. losing connectivity and last stop on the my network card Dell had an extra tab with among others a dialogue box that says allow non authenticated networks, if I have not activated this box I lose network connectivity. There is a lot more history on this but as it's a forum 7. I will deal with the ACER that has home premium 7 64-bit. My Acer has been the same losing regularly access and features, then 8 weeks ago it lost its image and was referred to Acer warranty. They returned with a new hard drive. I just had to finish setting up installation it is reactivated. Then windows update does not work, I asked Microsoft to their application process for assistance. I got an e-mail from a technician of Microsoft in the United States, after several attempts to correct without success, she asked me to run a SFC scan and him send the CBS. I duly did and she answered saying contact support for windows 7 from microsoft in the United Kingdom. I did later, after going round in circles whenever I got at the reception, that they wanted to put me through to security to check the virus, I kept telling them that I do not have a virus. My machines are diverted using legitimate microsoft tools, I case can't know how but I know they are. Anyway, eventually I talked to an 'expert' 7, he looked at the newspaper cbs and who told me that I was not running genuine windows software, HOW THE * if the it came from the factory with a new hard drive. The SFC scan will only complete 99%. He told me to use my disks supplied with the machine and reinstall. I had not all disks (Acer provide as a matter of course). So I duly sent to the disk and he told me that if I wanted that it would contribute to format my machine and install correctly. On the property page for my computer, I couldn't see the product ID, which showed was the OEM product ID and ease of sytem info did not, however I have AVG tune up on my machine and it has a similar feature and he was able to show me not only OEM but as well the windows product ID. The product ID was not on my machine, I hought Hall * lujah to the last number. I went on my dell don't have reinstall a suit of the disc and checked the ID of the product (using AVG tune up) and it wa wrong too! I did the same with my Toshiba exactly the same thing. HOW CAN I DO a REINSTALL FULL ON different mac, hines and they reinstall a fake Windows ID and I used records of origin provided by the manufacturers themselves. In any case to the ACER a few weeks back I got ACER discs I paid £51 for and did a fresh install, why I did it's simple, I contacted Saurabh on 7 press repeatedly telling him I had the drive, but he ignored me. When I did the new OEM installation was the 'bad' OEM again, and he does not feel again. A few days later, I ran SFC again and he found files corrupted, but said it had repaired them. I have e mailes Slim with my cbs log and emphasizing the wrong OEM and yold he me my system was running fine! ?? I have sent e several times since. Now that he told me was put microsoft esentials on my machine it is the best well produced I am sorry to say that it has failed and WF kept getting amended to allow remote-access areas and various programs through the firewall, I did it! I'm on my second reinstall Acer and I put AVG back tune and guess what I've got illegal product ID I ran SFC and he returned with corruption cases and others that he couldn't fix it. I have e mailes Saurabh last night, but no answer yet! I have no 2005 c ++ installed even if it was and if I remember what AVG told me that my computer is at risk without it (I have 2008 c ++ installed). If you allow me, I know it's vista but I would like to come back to the Dell because I came across something interesting last night. When I bought the dell I had taken his retirement through ill health and he is / was a great machine costs about £1, 2 k, but missed me 1 day, I had dell come and install it and there was a lack of driver form the diskette, the technician that installed in my house was able to download , within two weeks, I had him bak, because I knew that something was wrong, I thought that even in this case, my system has been hijacked, two weeks later I had him back and had the card because I had seen a lot of activity during the night system event where my machine was not on wireless. I had numerous phone calls with the Dell support staff, they even managed to erase the image on the Dell! I'm sure that on the notes for my account, I have a black spot. Anyway yesterday I started another reinstall progrem first of the drive on the Dell, and the DELL that contains drivers and resources Dell Software Center. Before going any further, I have instructed Security Task Manager, and he scored the Dell "failed" CD and a high risk rating. When I watched the news of rating provides this security task manager it said that wa the bad drive for my system disk is how I read it in any case. I say two years my machines were diverted by the network and I share all my machines they re all together to the public profile or the boot. I am more convinced that never boots on my macine are corrupt, otherwise how can I load o/s that are correct from disks/factory settings? Provided by Acer Windows 7 discs direct home I paid just for them, unyet when I do a full erase of the data and reinstall I'm reinstallinga corrupted windows product ID HOW? I know what is happening, it helps a person remotley to access my machines, then they install legitimate windows of tools to support. After all if the used softwatre is a legitimate windows software, windows is not going to pick this up, is it? I need help please, the technician windows 7 gave me. Reference Dell thinks I'm nuts, BT my ISP think I am wrong because I keep saying my netwrok is hijacked. I now eveidence, I thought would solve my problem. I thought that Microsoft would want to fnd a solution to a (?) method may be very unusual to hack, new but they do not want to know. And could I close by saying how worried I'm over here, who has hijacked my system did not do anything of my Bank, there has been no identity fraud so it makes no sense? Unless of course, it's csomething like a fraud or pedophile ring using my machines to process jobs anonymously. I thought to go to the Police, but that I do that I tell my machines are diverted, but none of the providers think so? My first proper job in 1974 was like acomputer operator on a mainframe gianICL, I got a PC since 1981 when I had an amstrad 500, I project managed workflow DIP in the middle of the 1990s and on the internet at home for 97 but I'm not a geek, but I know I'm right, but for the moment all the manufacturers including Microsoft and want to know. I can't take any of my machines all have Group Policy Client running on them. Someone help please I need someone who can reinstall help me stop the remote access and in the case of ACER how to change the activation key, there is no installation on the property page, but it is on the Toshiba and Dell apologies for typos it took awhile to type and try to make it readable thanks Alan

    Go to Applications in the 'Go' option on your mac and you will see files created for your installed applications from Adobe.

    You can run the uninstall from there and uninstall program.

    If you don't see any uninstall program and then everything simply drag the application folder or icon to the trash.

  • How to uninstall the update of windows KB968211 you?

    Have Windows 7 Ultimate N. downloaded KB968211 to install the media components, but when I click on Media Player, the message "Windows Media Player is not installed correctly and must be reinstalled."  I tried to reinstall and the message says it is already installed.  I tried to uninstall, but the removal of program does not allow me to uninstall.  What is the reference for this?

    Well, it looks like you type everything correctly.  You can try to run the System File Checker and see if that solves all the files.  If not, it is possible that installation packages were corrupt and which is causing the problem.  You will have to perhaps to reinstall Windows and return to a State of the new facility and install from scratch.
