# Easy uninstall of patches in Windows 7

Windows Vista introduced patches in MSU (Microsoft Standalone Update) format which has many advantages over the traditional Windows XP patches format. However, if one want to uninstall patches in Windows Vista, this is kind of tricky.

You will be glad to learn that in Windows 7 the wusa.exe command line tool has been improved so that you can use an uninstall switch and just supply the KB number for the update you want to remove.

`wusa.exe /uninstall /kb:940102 /quiet`

Could it become easier to uninstall patches using scripts?
