  • Hi,

    Due to these are security patches, it is not recommended to remove them.

    If these patches cause conflict in the server, to remove these patches, we have two choices:

    1. Remove these patches by WSUS
    2. Remove these patches manually

    To remove these patches by WSUS, please follow the steps below,

    1. In the WSUS administrative console, click Updates.
    2. In the list of updates, select one or more updates that you want to approve for removal and right-click them (or go to the Actions pane).
    3. In the Approve Updates dialog box, select the computer group from which you want to remove the update, and click the arrow next to it.
    4. Select Approved for Removal, and then click the Remove button.
    5. After the remove approval has completed, you may select a deadline by right-clicking the update once more, selecting the appropriate computer group, and clicking the arrow next to it. Then select Deadline.

    My first question is WHY we're talking about a Windows Server 2008 SP1 system?

    Actually I'm inclined to attribute that to a critical typographical error, since two of the updates in question did not apply to Windows Server 2008 systems, and the third (MS14-009) couldn't have been installed on a WS2008SP1 system anyway.

    (In forums posts *semantics* is everything. If you give us inaccurate information ... even accidentally .. it can result in you getting inaccurate information.)

    KB2592687
    KB2574819
    KB2898858

    My next observation is that KB2898858 (MS14-009) is superseded by MS14-046, so perhaps the solution is to install the newer update?

    My third observation is that KB2592687 and KB2574819 are from September 2013, so why the interest in uninstalling them now?

    But.. to answer your question: All three updates can be removed by using the WSUS "Approval for Removal" feature.
