3080149

but it won't hide this:
3068708.

Only I have this problem?

I'm not sure what could be causing the issue. Have you went into Windows Update manually to see if the hide option is available for it? What does the log file say for that one when it's hiding it?

I now present to you, the expanded and reformatted list of evil updates!

This took a while, especially after I closed Notepad++ before saving my KB list with the window close button, forgetting there are now TABS, one of which contained this half completed list! THAT'S why you don't disable the auto restore on close feature. doh.gif

There are now links to the official KB articles, a quick description, OS's affected, and summarized info from the KB article if available. I've also added notes where applicable like: NOTE: Uninstall may fail. Error: "KB2976978 is required by your system". Applies to systems with either of the two latest versions of this patch.

KB2902907 RANT: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Remember KB2902907, whose description is not available? It has no official KB article. The only information I can find about it says it's a Microsoft Security Essentials installer for Windows XP ONLY, which often fails to install or something. Not exactly the criteria we're looking for.
First post, login required to view: http://forums.mydigitallife.info/threads/51327-Download-MS-Security-Essentials-(System-Center-Endpoint-Protection)
Screenshot for your convenience, middle click to view full size:

I almost decided to remove it from the list... however, every list like this I've seen has this KB ID on it. Perhaps the reason for this is because all the people who have made a list like this just copied off one another, and added to their lists without checking each KB thoroughly. If it were a critical security update M$ would block uninstallation like with KB2976978. So either it won't do anything, or it will remove something bad that shouldn't have been there in the first place.
Better safe than sorry! thumb.gif

If you have any information proof or hearsay about KB2902907 please let us know. thumb.gif

You should know I've now checked over every update to verify that it IS indeed something we want to uninstall of and does belong on this list. And BOY OH BOY was it tedious. who-let-rip-smiley.png

I got the majority of updates we hadn't listed here: https://gist.github.com/xvitaly/eafa75ed2cb79b3bd4e9 Looks like what we started with code-wise.

Should I group by type, or order by KB number? How about release date? What about first by type and then by KB number or vice versa? Help meeeeeee! haha nerdsmiley.png I'm going to sleep.

Agawthrop, do you know how the formatting works for the [ CODE][/code] function here? It's like I have no control over what gets highlighted or bold or italics. I'm totally confused. Just simply erasing the apostrophe in "BSOD's" caused it change from looking like this:

Agawthrop, Update KB3068708 isn't hiding successfully. I have restored all hidden updates, restarted, searched for updates, and run the script. Twice.

Did I break it? D:

Not sure about how the code tag formatting works. I'm assuming its handled by the forum engine.

Does right clicking on 3068708 give you the option to Hide it?

Yep, manually this update can be hidden...

Hmm. I'll look into why it's not finding that update as being available when it's searching for it.
