Version 3.1.2 released! Head to the first post to check it out. http://www.overclock.net/t/1572731/batch-uninstall-hide-windows-updates-forced-win10-telemetry/0_100#post_24386004
This is only a minor update.
Here are a few of the changes:
- Incorrect information about failing updates removed.
- Swapped MS Article links were fixed.
- Bat file changed to cmd file.
- KbList text updated and thread link added.
- Wording changes to make descriptions clearer and uniform.
The first post has been completely revamped with new and important information!
There are four new sections.How to use, known issues, and the latest uninstall list.
That is actually a big part of this update. I've received a few PM's asking these questions so I think this will proactively answer them.
Next up is credits. - I'm hoping to have more than two people to add to it though lol
I also want to add a sort of "Having this problem? Well here's the solution!" section. Except I can't call it an FAQ, because they are problems you didn't know you had until you looked.
Like this: http://www.overclock.net/t/1572731/batch-uninstall-hide-windows-updates-forced-win10-telemetry/0_100#post_24410330AND NOW! FOR MY LATEST DISCOVERY!
I am actually, an idiot.
Yes. That's right. I did something so stupid, that only a complete idiot would be able to do it and not realize what he'd done.
I ran this DISM command in attempt to slim down my WinSxS folder as much as I possibly could. I ran it even though there was a warning RIGHT BELOW IT with a nice yellow warning symbol to catch my attention about what would happen if I ran it.
Dism.exe /online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup /ResetBase
Existing updates cannot be uninstalled after this command is completed. Warning
All existing service packs and updates cannot be uninstalled after this command is completed. This will not block the uninstallation of future service packs or updates.
I ran it after I had run this script, but BEFORE I had revamped the list of updates to remove...
And that is my stupid story of how KB2976978 became impossible to uninstall.
Don't suppose there's any way to fix this?
a reinstall.Edited by cookieboyeli - 9/20/15 at 7:42am
