    Maybe it would be more productive to spend your time figuring out why the updated failed. :rolleyes:

    I don't like to see these failed or cancelled entries in windows update history. I want to see only successful entries in the windows update history.

    To be honest. I don't know how to do it haha. I'm sorry. I just wanted to confirm that you crazy haha. No offence.

    Anyway, you failed to give me a rational reason so in a way I did what I promised.

    Have you tried doing a system restore back to the point before you installed those updates? You could try that...

    If I were you though, I would not even worry about it. If the updates installed improperly and botched up your system that's one thing, but they didn't, and since it is just such a trivial thing, I would just ignore it and keep living my life... :)

    Deleting the file \Windows\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore\DataStore.edb will delete all entries and is the only way to delete entries entries in the windows update history.

    Of course it will not delete the entries. It will set you back to before you installed them.
    You can try and reinstall them again now... ;)
