Since foolhardily installing the latest windows updates, my XP laptop now takes 45 minutes to boot up; ThinkVantage no longer reacts and it took 30 mins to connect to the WiFi.

According to this, there is a problem with patch KB977165 which is causing BSOD for some people, so I want to uninstall it. I have no XP disk around here (it is at work, and today is Saturday...) so can't boot from one.

How can I uninstall the update?


They can be uninstalled from Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel. Check off the Show Updates checkbox at the top of the window:

The updates will then appear in the list and you can remove them like other applications.
