Because they don't have an uninstall button..... sorry I had to. On a serious note though I don't know, never tried uninstalling updates on 7 yet.

Some updates and a lot of Hotfixes cannot be uninstalled. They usually tell you that in the details before you install. These might be that type.

Upon further looking, it seems that these are not official released KB's from Microsoft.

Where did you get them?

It is hard to say what they are or how they will act.
