How do I stop this update from deploying and how can I remove it from PCs that all ready have it installed?

It's kicking off downloading Windows 10 in the background and it's really effecting my network bandwidth.

command line to uninstall

wusa /uninstall /kb:3035583 /quiet /norestart

you may want to delete the files it installs under C:\Windows\System32\GWX

To prevent future updates you could disable "Recommended Updates"
Or hide it via VBS or some other scripting language. I use a C# application that hooks into the WUAPI but here is a vbs that may work.

Run using cscript or comment out the wscript.echo lines for unattend running.
The update.IsHidden line might need to be changed from "true" to "1" ........

###########################
Set updateSession = CreateObject("Microsoft.Update.Session")
updateSession.ClientApplicationID = "MSDN Sample Script"

Set updateSearcher = updateSession.CreateUpdateSearcher()
WScript.Echo "Searching for updates..." & vbCRLF
Set searchResult = updateSearcher.Search("IsInstalled=0 and IsHidden=0")

If searchResult.Updates.Count = 0 Then
    WScript.Echo "There are no applicable updates."
    WScript.Quit
End If

For I = 0 to searchResult.Updates.Count-1
    Set update = searchResult.Updates.Item(I)
    For C = 0 to update.KBArticleIDs.count-1
        If InStr(UCase(update.KBArticleIDs(C)),UCase("3035583")) Then
            update.IsHidden = true
        End If
    Next
Next

  • How can I do this by pushing it out with KACE... Yeah, unfortunately, I'm still a NEWB with KACE.
    • I updated my answer with a quick rundown
    • BTW: KACE does not provide this patch.
      https://support.software.dell.com/kb/153613
      You should check how to patch with KACE in the future, to supress such things.
      https://support.software.dell.com/k1000-systems-management-appliance/videos contains also a video for you (patching step by step)
      • It's easier to pull my own teeth with out pain medicine than it is to check with KACE support on how to do specific things. My experience with KACE support has been nothing but slow and useless... But thanks for the clarification Nico!
      • Thanks for this little tidbit! I had no idea. I've been monitoring my patch list for it because I just really don't want my users seeing that. They must have known that all of us wouldn't want that. Props to the K-Team!
