Need To Uninstall Windows 8.1 Update? Here Is How

mandatory update for everyone running Windows 8.1 — meaning it is required if you want to continue receiving updates. Windows 8 users, however, have nothing to fear. They will continue receiving updates and security patches for the foreseeable future, even if they have not installed Windows 8.1 or Windows 8.1 Update. Oh, the perks of staying on older platforms! But if you want to uninstall this latest release, here is what you have to do. The update comes in the form of several KB files, and you are going to have to remove them all in order to go back to Windows 8.1 standard. Just head on over to Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features > View installed updates. Here, uninstall the following files: KB2949621, KB2938439, KB2937592, KB2932046, and KB2919355. Reboot, and you are done. Additionally, there is a second method that works just as fine. Launch a Command Prompt window (with administrator privileges) and run the following commands:

wusa.exe /uninstall /kb:2949621 wusa.exe /uninstall /kb:2938439 wusa.exe /uninstall /kb:2937592 wusa.exe /uninstall /kb:2932046 wusa.exe /uninstall /kb:2919355
One by one, obviously. Reboot, and you are done.]]>
