    Unable to uninstall windows update


    Hello Experts,

    I am trying to uninstall Windows Update which was done recently in order to fix an issue but when I uninstall it and reboot my system it always gets installed back again. I also disabled the automatic update and deferred it also, I even disconnected my PC from internet and then tried to uninstall it but every time I reboot after uninstalling, these updates always get installed back again especially the security related updates.

    Any clues ?

    Thank you but when I executed all the steps at the end it says "There are no updates available to Hide"
    Here is what I did:
    Downloaded that software
    saved it in E:\ drive
    Ran it by double clicking
    Clicked on advance and selected the checkbox which says 'Apply the repairs automatically'
    Clicked on Next
    Clicked on "Hide Update" but after that it says there are no updates to hide.

    I am doing all this because two days ago my Windows 10 went through an updated related to Security and Microsoft Office but only after this my Oracle VirtualBox doesn't start. When I click on the program it doesn't respond at all and that's why I want to uninstall the updates.
    Then somebody suggested me that I should create another user account, login with that and then try running VirtualBox. So I created one but when I try to login with that I get the error - "User Profile Service Failed to Login, User Profile cannot be loaded".

    Oops..!! this particular tool (wushowhide) wasn't able to detect updates to be hid because I had the Windows Update service disable.

    But even after enabling the service, the tool was able to detect the updates that we can hide but they are not the ones which were recently applied in my system and I want to hide them. Instead, it displays the driver related updates which I don't want to hide.
    I have attached screenshots of both the wushowhide and the Uninstall Windows update page.
