how to remove duplicate windows update KB 2553094 - no uninstall option in windows 7 add/remove program features


  • Hi,

    I would like to have the above KB removed, there is a duplicate of it, its appearing 4 times on my machine. Its related to sharepoint server 2010, which I have uninstalled, however the update remained. I tried to uninstall it using the remove program features, but the uninstall option does not show.
