It did not work for me.

If you wish to uninstall all the Updates that came in on 10 Jan, then you have to do each one, one after the other, until they are all gone. Then reboot the computer, you should not need to reboot after each one.

Hi Rick33,

1) change Windows Update to LET ME CHOOSE.
2) REBOOT
3) UN-install all those installed 10 jan
4) REBOOT
5) Open Windows update - RIGHT click on those problem ones - select Hide
6)REBOOT
7)Create Restore Point

Note the PREVIOUS restore points INCLUDE the problem updates - delete them

sadly windows does not do that!
KB3177467 - nothing happens when i right click 12 10 2018 is the date on it.
change Windows Update to LET ME CHOOSE. well it has been set that way since this problem started.
new ones still keep appearing! (even with internet off!
How do i delete the one that right click does nothing?
thanks for your help

This is on a windowsclub website
Microsoft explains why Windows 7 Update KB3177467 failed
looks interesting

looks like servicing stack updates were uninstallable
PC Repair Tool is this just a scam - or will it help? link was on the windows club page

Hi Rick33,

That KB is a Servicing Stack update and once installed IS virtually uninstallable
MS keep changing the rules and its UN-HIDEABLE

IF this KB is NOT installed - future updates WILL fail, as it has become a pre-requisite
MS spotted that a lot of W7 users were only installing Security updates only.
It wasnt originally security see V1 this is V2. sneaky devils

Make sure you have System Restore turned on!

To change the amount of disk space used for System Restore Points:-

Click Start => Control Panel => System => System protection in the left hand pane.
Close the Control Panel => All Control Panel Items => System window.
Click C: to highlight it => click Configure.

Adjust the Max Usage: slider to how much disk space you want System Protection to use => click OK => click OK.

I hope this helps!
