    Hi,
    CMD is great for removing updates it must be ran as administrator though or it won't work.
    Best is to never install the bad updates obviously or make a system image to revert to if mistakenly installing them :)

    Did it work ok? Sounds good! I did a clean install a few days ago and just did it the old way lol. As mentioned above, it was quite quick because Windows update updates itself and shortly after all 200 odd Important updates appear. I did the first 5 or 6 first (includes ie8 update and ie11) so the rest of the updates didn't crash without ie11 installed.

    Have taken note about note doing optional updates from now on - I didn't do the March roll-up but I believe it came back in the April important updates. Or the part about w7 cpu blocking for certain machines did anyway.

    So just this from your post should be enough?

    • Disable internet access* -- unplugging your ethernet cable or turning off your WIFI
    • Stop WU service* -- "Start" > {type in} "Services" > {Enter} > "Windows Update" > {rt click} "Stop"

    And then just click on updates exe's, no need to use CMD commands, correct?
    I will try in a few days and then post results here.

    P.S. Thanks!
    Yes...
