Hi, I just had a little query of the removable status of some of my windows updates. I was using the tool PureRa, since I am a fan of the tool JavaRa and I was wondering if I did something I shouldn't have. I checked the box Windows Update Installation Files and clicked clean. It removed almost a gigabyte of files that seemed useless. However, when I and my brother wondered if we could uninstall the updates we found a conglomerate of updates that say at the bottom "This update cannot be removed". They all say they were installed on 5/9/2010 and are grouped together. Also there are different updates interspersed throughout add/remove which carry the same message.
I am running an XP. Also to note the files the files that seemingly were removed were located under C:\Windows\ with names like $NtUninstallKB955759$. Some files remain.
My guess is that they are all part of the Service Pack 3 and I cannot remove them without removing the service pack. I do not really want to remove any of these updates, but I would still like the ability too, if I ever needed to. However that seems impossible at the moment. Maybe a manual uninstall? Any ideas?
