With XP

If you go to your Tools/folder option/View and choose "Show hidden files and folders" after you will be able when you go to C:\WINDOWS to see all your updates (ex: $MSI31Uninstall_KB893803v2$) and in each folder you usually have the uninstall program.

You can also go to your Control Panel/ Add or Remove Programs check show updates and all the updates installed on your computer will be displayed, from there you can uninstall any you want.

On Vista and 7 should be similar but do not have enough experience with them to guarantee it is.
