How to Fix Not All of the Updates Were Successfully Uninstalled Error?

The "Not all of the updates were successfully uninstalled" error typically occurs when you're trying to uninstall a Windows update, but the uninstall process encounters an issue and can't complete successfully. This error can be frustrating, but there are several steps you can try to fix it. Here's a step-by-step guide:

Note: Before proceeding, make sure you have administrative privileges on your computer.

  1. Reboot Your Computer: Sometimes, simply restarting your computer can resolve update-related issues. Restart your computer and try the uninstallation again.

  2. Use the Windows Update Troubleshooter:

    • Press Win + I to open the Settings app.
    • Go to "Update & Security" > "Troubleshoot" on the left pane.
    • Click on "Windows Update" and run the troubleshooter. Follow the on-screen instructions to fix any problems it finds.
  3. Use the Command Prompt:

    • Open a Command Prompt with administrative privileges. To do this, search for "cmd" or "Command Prompt" in the Start menu, right-click it, and choose "Run as administrator."
    • In the Command Prompt window, type the following command and press Enter:
      wusa /uninstall /kb:<KB_NUMBER>
      Replace <KB_NUMBER> with the actual KB number of the update you want to uninstall. You can find the KB number in the Windows Update history.
    • Follow the on-screen prompts to complete the uninstallation.
  4. Use the Windows Update Standalone Installer:

    • Open a Command Prompt with administrative privileges as described in step 3.
    • Type the following command and press Enter:
      wusa /uninstall /kb:<KB_NUMBER> /quiet /norestart
      Replace <KB_NUMBER> with the actual KB number of the update you want to uninstall.
    • This command will attempt to uninstall the update silently without requiring user interaction.
  5. Use the DISM (Deployment Image Service and Management Tool):

    • Open a Command Prompt with administrative privileges.
    • Run the following command to check for and repair system corruption:
      DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
    • After the process completes, reboot your computer and try uninstalling the update again.
  6. Manually Delete Windows Update Files:

    • In some cases, you may need to manually delete Windows Update files. This should be done cautiously, as it involves deleting system files.
    • Navigate to C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download and delete all the files and folders within the "Download" folder.
    • Try the uninstallation process again.
  7. Use System Restore:

    • If none of the above methods work, you can try using System Restore to revert your computer to a state before the problematic update was installed. This will remove the update and any other changes made since that restore point.
