    the second remove method is redundant anyway

    Except KB3021917 and the new KB4493132, all Windows10 related updates components are already in the Monthly Rollup
    there is no point of uninstalling them (if you install the rollup)

    Hi to Everyone.
    Please, I'am need the help of some experts.
    Is it possible to HIDE ONLY the update's list at the bottom with a simple script that I can execute via task Scheduler at any logon? I' am not an expert... sorry
    This must be valid for any Windows 7 PRO/ULTIMATE

    I don't need an unistaller tool but only something that, after the WU check, hide automatically these updates forever so no one can found them and install.
    The Simplix pack don't install them but these remain visible.

    Please, this script must run in background after the logon, in silent mode.
    All the others updates and the Windows service must remain active.
    Thanks in advance

    You can use some like this:
    Code:
    ' --------------------------
    Dim hideupdates(3)
    hideupdates(0) = "3045999"
    hideupdates(1) = "3068708"
    hideupdates(2) = "2872339"
    
    Wscript.echo "Starting Hiding..."
    
    set updateSession = createObject("Microsoft.Update.Session")
    set updateSearcher = updateSession.CreateupdateSearcher()
    
    Set searchResult = updateSearcher.Search("IsHidden=0 and IsInstalled=0 and Type='Software'")
    
    For i = 0 To searchResult.Updates.Count-1
        set update = searchResult.Updates.Item(i)
        For j = LBound(hideupdates) To UBound(hideupdates)
            'MsgBox hideupdates(j)
            if instr(1, update.Title, hideupdates(j), vbTextCompare) = 0 then
                  'Wscript.echo "No match found for " & hideupdates(j)
            else
                Wscript.echo "Hiding " & hideupdates(j)
                update.IsHidden = True
            end if
        Next
    Next
    
    Wscript.echo "End Hiding..."
    Save as "hide-updates.vbs"

    To run: wscript hide-updates.vbs

    There is a whole "2) Hide updates:" section at first page, you can adjust the list of updates numbers

    Hi BesZakona, I have already try to modify your script but a nag appear for any update found and after a WU, no more updates not present in this list appear.

    Mr. Abbodi, you are a Legend.
    I have also try to adjust your code but I'am too lame for that.
    How to disable the WU search when the script is executed?
    I'm searching only for script that run in SILENT mode, that hide the updates of abobe automatically, without human interaction.
    At every reboot, he make a check if them are already hidden to prevent that one WU search launched manually find them.
    Can you help me to make a little script to make this in few steps? sorry for my bad english… and for the patience...

    First of all, that list of updates is exaggerated, and all of them already contained in Monthly Rolllup

    just use W10-Hide.cmd and change the list numbers and remove the pause
    then you can place in C:\Windows and create schedule task to run it at logon

    Code:
    @echo off
    set "list=2952664 2990214 3021917 3035583 3068708 2977759 3075249 3080149 3022345 3150513 3173040 4493132 2676562 3050265 3118401 3123479"
    
    %windir%\system32\reg.exe query "HKU\S-1-5-19" 1>nul 2>nul || goto :eof
    cd /d "%~dp0"
    (echo Dim objArgs
    echo Set objArgs ^= Wscript.Arguments
    echo Dim updateSession, updateSearcher
    echo Set updateSession ^= CreateObject^("Microsoft.Update.Session"^)
    echo Set updateSearcher ^= updateSession.CreateUpdateSearcher^(^)
    echo Wscript.Stdout.Write "Checking for updates..."
    echo Dim searchResult
    echo Set searchResult ^= updateSearcher.Search^("IsInstalled=0"^)
    echo Dim update, kbArticleId, index, index2
    echo WScript.Echo " "
    echo WScript.Echo " "
    echo For index ^= ^0 To searchResult.Updates.Count ^- ^1
    echo     Set update ^= searchResult.Updates.Item^(index^)
    echo     For index2 ^= ^0 To update.KBArticleIDs.Count - ^1
    echo         kbArticleId ^= update.KBArticleIDs^(index2^)
    echo         For Each hotfixId in objArgs
    echo             If kbArticleId ^= hotfixId Then
    echo                 If update.IsHidden ^= False Then
    echo                     WScript.Echo "Hiding update: " ^& update.Title
    echo                     update.IsHidden ^= True
    echo                 Else
    echo                     WScript.Echo "Already hidden: " ^& update.Title
    echo                 End If         
    echo             End If
    echo         Next
    echo     Next
    echo Next
    echo.)>Hide.vbs
    echo.
    cscript.exe //Nologo //B Hide.vbs %list%
    echo.
    echo.
    del Hide.vbs
    exit /b

    Ah ok, but the script always check first via WU and popup messages appear.
    I'am searching for something that HIDE only, without notify.

    remove this line
    Code:
    echo Wscript.Stdout.Write "Checking for updates..." 
    you will always get a cmd window
