    The wusa command appeared successful. But dism get packages shows 2952664 packages. Trying to remove it using dism gets me.
    Error: 5
    Access is denied
    I am logged in as the domain admin and running the command prompt as administrator.

      @Paul Cook: Try to temporarily disable your AV protection and try again.

    Thank you so much for your tutorial! This rescued my internal WSUS server which only presented BSOD after June 2020 updates. With your tutorial I could remove the faulty updates!

    "wusa /uninstall /kb" does not accept /quiet. It just silently doesn't do anything. Even the wusa documentation does not list "/quiet" as one of the acceptable arguments when using "/uninstall /kb".

      No, it is not true, the "/quiet" is listed in command's arguments. Type "wusa /?" (with quotes) to see all arguments of WSUA command.

        /quiet is an accepted argument.
        But incompatible when trying to uninstall via a KB number
        (/kb and /uninstall)
