Remove canceled update from review your update history list.

...Yes I knew that is what someone would reply, however the question is not 'Why?' but rather 'How?'

Windows Update - Reset

Just a method to clear out the failed or
unsucceeded updates, and have a clean only
successfully installed updates log list.

Hello iTRiP,

I agree with Pauly. It's nothing but a log.

If you really must remove it, then you could use OPTION ONE in the tutorial below to reset and clear all Windows Update history. It doesn't uninstall the update, but only removes the history logs. Personally, it's not worth doing for one entry.

Windows Update - Reset

Hope this helps, :)
