How To Manually Uninstall A Windows Update


Remove some Windows updates installed on your PC to resolve software and hardware incompatibility issues.

For security reasons, it is recommended to update your operating system as often as necessary. Unfortunately, it sometimes happens that some software or devices that you use on a daily basis no longer work after installing a Windows update.

Until a patch is proposed by the program publisher or device manufacturer to restore your device to working order, you can still manually uninstall faulty updates to find working tools.
