I know someone already asked this but the instructions aren't detailed enough for me. Sorry, but the reason I'm here is because I don't know anything. It isn't helpful at all to be cryptic. :o

 

Windows was about to install itself (I HATE MS!!!), but I tricked it not to do it. Went into System Restore with minutes to spare. It had deleted all of them, but I was ab le to locate one I had created a couple of weeks ago. I restored it to that point, it was successful, but I am now afraid to leave my computer because the damn thing is probably going to try again while I'm not looking.

 

Aura, how do I do this? When I inserted the snippet of code you indicated to warthog I got the result he did. All I did was type in the code, then hit enter. Then it went wrong. How do I do this correctly?

 

Thanks.

What don't you understand in the commands below?

rONW46K.pngUninstall a Windows Update - Command Prompt
Follow the instructions below to uninstall a Windows Update manually via the command prompt.
  • On Windows Vista & 7, click on the Windows Start Menu, then enter cmd in the search box, right-click on the cmd icon and select Run as Administrator
  • On Windows 8, drag your cursor in the bottom-left corner, and right-click on the metro menu preview, then select Command Prompt (Admin);
  • On Windows 8.1, right click on the Windows logo in the bottom-left corner and select Command Prompt (Admin);
  • Enter the command below (you can copy/paste it, to paste in the command prompt, right-click inside it and select Paste):
    • wusa /uninstall /KB:3035583
  • Let me know the outcome of the command: either it uninstall the update or either it says that the update isn't installed on the system;
What do you mean by "it went wrong"?

Look at thumbnail warthog posted after he tried this for the first time. That's the exact thing i got. You then told him he did it wrong, he knew immediately HOW he did it wrong and proceeded to try it the right way and it worked. Great for him, but that doesn't help me since I do not know how he corrected what he did wrong.

It's probably because you're still not entering the command properly. Copy/paste it in your command prompt, that'll work.
