Hey guys, I was wondering if you know any way to mass remove a Windows Update over a network.

KB2597166 is absolutely wreaking havok in my office with it's Excel bugs so I was just going to mass remove it until they come up with a fix.

EDIT: Also, I would go uninstall at each computer by hand, but I still won't be able to mass uninstall the updates from our eternal guys over the VPN.

If you are on AD or a way to push a batch script you can take the command line that was listed in the post that Singh400 mentioned.

msiexec /I {90140000-0011-0000-0000-0000000FF1CE} MSIPATCHREMOVE={B76D8C6D-1F13-42A7-9931-D7504CB89D6D} /qn

I was hopinh you would add 2 + 2 like primortal has below. Just deploy a batch file across the network.
