Batch Update Uninstaller - Uninstall Forced Win10 & Telemetry - Page 11

It is indeed an error due to the a folder in the file path having spaces (see what I mean @cookieboyeli!!). I can make that adjustment pretty simply.

EDIT: After running it, it can't seem to uninstall KB2952664, @agawthrop, you know how to fix this issue? I tried to uninstall it manually which it did and then hid it, yet I still see it after rebooting on the list of updates installed.

Not sure, but occasionally you'll have to uninstall an update several times as before it is completely uninstalled?

Could everyone having issues with not being able to place it anywhere but the desktop give this version a try? Let me know your results.

Note: It cannot be stored on mapped network drives, because the run as admin feature runs the CMD window in its own user context. Mapped drives are user centric, so the admin context does not see the mapped drives.

Oh, one other question. Does this program need to be run on an elevated command prompt with Administrator Privileges?

Yes, it must be run with elevated privileges.

There's a way to force this without having to right click > run as admin correct? Many programs do it automatically. They just won't run as a limited user, which is fine for this since you need admin privileges anyway.

I see what you mean about the spaces! You win agawthrop! (again). redface.gif

v4.1 is working from any directory! Great! thumb.gif I'm adding it to the OP.

Also, before you zip it, don't forget to delete the log until it only says:
Code:
Uninstall & Hide Windows Updates Log -
Then when you zip it, zip the 4 files, not the folder containing them so there isn't a folder in a folder when it unzips. (Unless there is some programming reason for this too, but I think it's just sloppy)! Bring it on! kungfu.gif

Version 4.1 released!
This is a minor bugfix update.

Changes since last version:

First post changes:
  • Linked a guide for removing pending updates for uninstalled devices, and duplicate updates.


Reminder: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2999226 Is a candidate for removal, but doing so will also remove a big feature it adds. Feedback?

I'm leaning towards adding it since it has bad with the good. In this case it's probably better to throw out the baby with the bathwater. Any objections?

I had looked at auto elevating. Seems pretty cumbersome, when it's extremely simple to right click runas. I like the powershell method, but it they don't have powershell installed, were right back to square one. I'll look into it a little more, maybe some other options out there.

As for zipping, I can do that. Typically I've just right clicked the folder and used 7zip to create the zip. I"ll just start selecting the files and add them to the zip going forward. As for the log file, I always forget to clear it! You can actually delete all the text, as the script overwrites whatever is there anyway (or at least it's supposed to!).

Can you provide some more info? When are you getting this message? Screenshots?
