Then right click on the computer group from which you want to remove the patch and then choose the “Approve for Removal” option from the resulting dialog box.
Before I move on, there is one important thing that I want to point out about the technique that I just described.
If you need to remove such a patch from a server, you will probably have to restore from a backup.
However, if you need to remove a patch from a workstation running Windows 7 and the patch can’t be removed through the normal means then you might be able to remove the patch by using the System Protection feature.
From this point, you can simply click the “System Restore” button and then use the System Restore Wizard to select a recovery point to restore, as shown in Figure D. Conclusion As you can see, there are several different options for removing buggy patches.System Protection is an option that allows a computer to be reverted to an earlier point in time by rolling back changes that have occurred.You can access this feature by clicking the “Start” button, right-clicking on the “Computer” menu option, and then choosing the “Properties” command from the shortcut menu. Now just click on the “System Protection” link to access the System Protection feature, as shown in Figure C.This update was aimed at organizations using its Windows Server Update Service (WSUS) management product.WSUS is typically used by large organizations with careful patch management requirements.If you have never noticed a “Remove” button in WSUS, it’s possibly because WSUS’ patch removal process is a little bit counter-intuitive.Before you can remove a patch, you must first approve a patch for removal.To do so, open the “Update Services” console and expand the “Updates” container.Select the sub-container containing the update and then locate the patch that you want to remove.If you look at the bottom of the dialog box shown in the figure, you can see that WSUS actually tells you that the selected update does not support removal. Expediting the removal process If you decide to remove a patch, you will want the patch to be removed quickly.Thankfully, Windows Server Update Service provides a way to expedite this process.
