Can  GDR 1617  be uninstalled from SQL Server 2008?
Can   KB2494088 be uninstalled from SQL Server 2008?
If so could you describe the procedure?

This needs to be done to eliminate a small "Report Services" problem that appeared  with these updates, which may or may not have been caused by the update.
