If I use the system restore feature in Windows ME, 2K, XP (home or pro), or Vista and I have installed Windows system updates since the last restore point was created, will the system restore roll back the previously installed system updates?

Thanks Scott for the link. After reading all the questions and answers, it appears that once the update is installed, it DOES NOT EVER roll back. Usually, that would not be a problem unless you have a software program that conflicts with the last windows update. OOPS!

You can try from Control Panel> Add/Remove Programs, tick Show Updates.
(In Vista, Programs & Features> View Installed Updates -in the upper right column)

Uninstall the update in question.

Does that help?
