Finding and Removing Installed Updates

Do you want to find out what hot fixes have been installed on your computer during the automatic updates that generally happen once a month? There's an easy way to check out which updates have been installed, and if necessary remove them.
  • Open the Control Panel folder, and then double-click the 'Add or Remove Programs' applet.
  • In the 'Add or Remove Programs' dialog, click the checkbox 'Show updates' at the top (which is not checked by default).
  • Scroll down in the list, until you see 'Windows XP - Software Updates'. From here you will see an installed list of updates.
If you need to uninstall one of these updates because its causing a problem, all you have to do is press the Remove button next to the update.
