You need to create a new program package listing the uninstall parameter for the KB which you wish to remove (Note, for various OS, you might need various uninstall parameters)

Once the package has been created publish the package to the systems in question.

The article below might also provide some more help/insight. A technician documented his procedure for the removal of patches.
