Uninstall a recent Windows Security update in XP


J

John N

A recent MS update from 11/11/09 named "Security Update for Microsoft Office
Excel 2007 (KB973593)" has caused a major flickering problem with a specific
Excel macro file I use. The file is still functional and I am seeking a fix
but would like to uninstall that specific update in the short run. I am able
to do this easily on my Vista machine but not on XP. Any help will be greatly
appreciated.

Have you looked in Add/Remove programs and ticked the box for "show
updates". If you do that the update should be inn the list.

This was likely introduced by the patches for MS09-067.

The patches are:

KB973475: Office 2003
KB973593: Office 2007

You can manually remove them via Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs (be sure
to check the "Show Updates" box).

Or copy the text below to a file and save it as ms09-067-uninstall.cmd.
Save this then run it to automatically uninstall the problematic patch.

(Correct for word wrap.)

If the file gets botched in the thread, you can email me and I'll send you a
copy. dhitchen |at| earthlink [dot] net
