Go to Control Panel> Add/Remove Programs and then uninstall the update on the server with the problem.

Yes - you can decline the update on WSUS to no longer install it.

You need to decline the update and also approve for uninstall to actually remove it (assuming this update can be removed) look at the update in wsus and it will say if can be removed or not.

Do you have "Client Side Targeting" enabled on your WSUS so that you can create groups ?

You can have a Group that you dont want IE8 installed on. You can also have a "Desktops" and "Servers" groups.
