Afternoon,

How can i unistall a Microsoft patch on many different workstations in my domain.
We deploy Microsoft patches each month via SCCM.
Is there a function in SCCM to remove patches from multiple machines, or is there an option in AD, perhaps using a GPO ?

Thanks,
Andrew

Not sure about SCCM, but in a Machine Startup Script, you can run the following, very easily.....

C:\WINDOWS\$NtUninstallKB2079403$\spuninst\spuninst.exe

Where the KB## is the one you want to uninstall....

Yeah, you would need to create an SCCM program for the uninstall.  Create a small bat file to use as the source of the program following the above comments.
