Vista auto updates failure
How do you uninstall auto updates that have failed?
They show in the update history but not in the installed history, as
installed history is where MS tells you to remove it from i'm at a loss.

Re: Vista auto updates failure
Not sure what you want here, but

Vista Features Explained: Automatic Updates
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/pro...owsupdate.mspx

You can check which updates are installed on your computer by - Start button || Control
Panel || Programs
Under Programs and Features - click View installed updates.

If you just want to clear the history -rename the file DataStore.edb (which is stored in
C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore) to DataStoreedb.old

You shouldn't uninstall updates unless there is a very good reason to do so, like causing
major problems with the computer.
