Where can I see the most recent updated time and the other things list in windows 7 and is there any way to reverse it back once after updating the OS?

Open Control Panel, then Programs and Features, then choose View Installed Updates. From there, you can request to have a selected update uninstalled. You can also do all this from the Windows Update utility. Microsoft's help page is here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Remove-an-update.

In the case of updating an OS, note that some updates cannot be uninstalled. You should think about making a backup for those updates. –  surfasb Dec 28 '11 at 6:53
    
@raj also . . in the "event viewer" Windows Logs, Setup, you can see the actual package number that was installed, and time that it was installed. using the number, back on the MStech site , you can often get more information about what exactally was changed. Lately more of the updates are more uninstallable than before , due to the complex system of isolation, and nothing ever leaving anymore :-) –  Psycogeek Dec 28 '11 at 11:07
