Batch Update Uninstaller - Uninstall Forced Win10 & Telemetry - Page 4

post #31 of 399
Not sure why the manual method from that post is working, but the auto method is not. Can't really seem to find anything on it either.

It's calling the Windows Update Searcher, which I believe searches for all available updated for your PC. I've told it to only grab those that are not installed. I'm assuming the search method used would ignore any tampering in WinSxS? Maybe?

I've written some logging, it really only provides the same info as the console window, but it lasts longer than 30 seconds! I'll post some code up tomorrow.

Since it's throwing the required error, it may be installed and hidden.

Yea it is really weird. The manual method doesn't even have the option to uninstall for me. See?
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Depending on the update selected the Uninstall button is either there or not.

Now I think I know where that 24 total updates is coming from. I didn't count the fact that it was pending/hidden AND installed somehow, but if I do now that would be 24. I just "installed" it and tried to uninstall to no avail, so it's.... double installed? haha I have no idea now, but it's surely in there and doesn't want to be removed. Maybe MS caught on and made a new revision. After all https://fix10.isleaked.com/ is suspiciously down... cryingsmiley.gif

Here's this after reinstalling the update:



Well if I "tamper" in WinSxS by removing an update package entirely it won't be able to know it exists to cross check the list. The only real question is then, what if an update is installed and it's WinSxS un/installer is completely removed? You can do just that and not be able to remove something until you re-download the package.

Now speaking of WinSxS update packages... since the updates are getting hidden, why not have the packages removed after successful uninstall is confirmed! Save some space. biggrin.gif

Alright, logging! thumb.gif

Can you share the last package? 2.0 package still gives me some problems during uninstall

I can share it this evening. It is currently on my home PC.

So here is, I believe, the final package. It contains a batch file, vbscript file, a text file and a log file. The log file is essentially the output from the console with a few tweaks for simplicity. I've made changes to both the batch and the vbscript file, so I recommended downloading the whole thing again. Just fill in the kbList.txt with the KB's you'd like to uninstall and hide and boom you should be good to go. Let me know about any other issues you come across.
UninstallUpdatesv3.0.zip 4k .zip file

Edit: I did not add anything to remove the packages, as that my not be desirable for everyone.

Just got a problem..
I've run the script with this kblist: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Code:
This file is used to store all of the KB article numbers and info.
The KB number must be first, and one KB per line.
2952664 – prepares system for upgrade to Windows 10 (sends a bunch of telemetry data to M$, reported to corrupt system files)
2976978 – prepares system for upgrade to Windows 10
2977759 – prepares system for upgrade to Windows 10, installs telemetry
2990214 – prepares system for upgrade to Windows 10
3021917 – prepares system for upgrade to Windows 10
3022345 – installs diagnostic tracking service, reported to corrupt system files
3050265 – supposedly fixes an issue with windows update, but also changes system files to support upgrade to Windows 10
3050267 – prepares system for upgrade to Windows 10
3068708 – installs telemetry service, prepares system for upgrade to Windows 10
2922324 – (reportedly pulled, uninstall it anyway if already installed)
3014460 – affects windows 8 only
3015249 – adds more damn telemetry
3065987 – makes “improvements” to the windows update client
3075851 – makes “improvements” to the windows update client
3035583 – “Get Windows 10 App” (delivers ready to use UAC backdoor as bonus)
3044374 – “Upgrade to Windows 10”
3080149 – “Customer experience and diagnostic telemetry”
3075249 – “Telemetry points to consent.exe” **this update adds spyware functionality to UAC**

the script hides these:
3035583
3044374
3015249
3080149

but it won't hide this:
3068708.

Only I have this problem?

Nope, it's completely hidden for me. 8.1 X64

More importantly, where did you get that list?! biggrin.gif

Can you uninstall 2976978? Mine is stuck as a required security update. No uninstall button: as seen in the spoiler here: http://www.overclock.net/t/1572731/uninstall-and-block-wu-telemetry-first-time-modifying-vbs-script-noob/0_100#post_24394475
