I recently installed a bunch of updates from the Windows update site. Now, some of the previously installed enterprise Java applications on my computer are not functioning properly, so I would like to back out these updates. Ideally, System Restore would do the trick, but the IT admins here disabled that feature. From Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs I can select any single update and remove it without issue. Unfortunately, it doesn't give you a nice sortable list (i.e. install dates are often missing and you can't sort by KB#). I already uninstalled the handful of updates that I could find without fixing the problem. Is there another way (command line or another tool or utility) that I can use to selectively uninstall Windows updates? Thanks.

NirSoft WinUpdateList does the trick.
