    Re: Unable to remove an update in Windows 7 System

    You may not be able to remove the update if your System is connected to the network. If you are in the network and updates may be managed by the Group Policy. If updates are managed by the group policy, you cannot remove the update which are installed. You need make the updates not to be managed by the group policy to remove the update. Another reason might be that, update might be related to the security - related area of the Operating System. Security - related updates of the Operating System cannot be removed. If you think such update is causing problem to your System and you want to remove it, contact the System Administrator or the technical people of the Organization and your Problem is Solved.

    Dear Friend,

    So you dont want to keep the update.
    Its simple.
    Just open my computer and in that open control panel.
    Now click on uninstall programmes.
    In it on the left panel you will an option of "installed updates".
    Click on it and then remove the updates which you want to remove.
    To permanently set you windows not to update click on start button and type " windows update".
    Next in the settings choose never update and click ok.
    Finally restart your system.

    Hi,

    The process of Uninstalling is fairly simple,

    CONTROL PANEL > PROGRAMS > PROGRAMS AND FEATURES > INSTALLED UPDATES Click on update and you will be offered the option Uninstall Update.

    Keep in mind that some updates are not allowed to be uninstalled, as they are used by System to run the Operating System.

    In another scenerio the Updates if installed in networked System might be governed by the "Group Policy" and need to be allowed by administrator.

    Check the situation and proceed.
