    Oh this is easy! There are two ways.

    The first is to use Add/Remove Programs. You can go into Add/Remove Programs, make sure "Show Updates" is selected at the top, find the updates in the list and remove them.

    The other method is to use System Restore. Do as follows:

    Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> System Restore -> Restore my computer to an earlier time -> Next -> Select the checkpoint for the updates -> Next

    first one doesnt work as thye update is not shown in the update list because it was an optional update. second once dusnt work either as restore is not on my copy of vista... but it no longer matters as i just reinstalled vista and sorted the problem, thanks anyways

    For future reference, go to control panel and select Windows Update, click Installed Updates at the bottom left. From here you can uninstall any update installed using Windows Update.
