    Hi, i've accidentally installed this update, now every boot it appears....is there a way to uninstall it? i've checked some options in windows update but didn't found anything.

    Thanks in advance!

    I did that on a Windows 7 pc, I renamed the exe file and it stopped showing.

    Can you do a system restore?

    hi,

    just go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Run

    and delete Browser Choice entry.

    good luck.

    i get this error:

    the recovery point specified is missing or damaged. Try using a different restore point. (0x81000201)

    i've just 3 recovery points and it does this with all...it seems like that update has specially damaged them to prevent any attempt to remove it....

    @bootstap: i searched the key but after "Run" there's nothing, no subfolders.

    I think something else has happened to your restore points and that it isn't the browser choice update causing the error.
    I installed the update yesterday to see what changes it makes in the registry and afterwards restored using system restore.
    I didn't save the info of the registry changes unfortunately.

    for the first days it appeared on every boot, but now not. from when i installed it doesn't changed anything. However i don't want it, it's just a waste of space and resources

    Can someone take screen shot of what this browser update does as I might not want it.
    Is it something added to the metro screen?
