Failed\Uninstalling Windows Updates

Posts: n/a
Since I recently started using Autopatcher and did a Full Install, with all
the relevant updates, I noticed in Belarc that it reports some of the
Windows Updates as having been failed to be applied properly.

Does anyone know, is this just an issue with Belarc? I'm unsure how to
otherwise check the success or validity of the applied updates otherwise.

If this is a true situation, I looked at uninstalling the relevant updates
from their folders in C:\Windows, but noticed it advised me that all the
applications I'd installed since may become unworkable. Is that a real risk.
Is there a better way to go about it?

Oh, whilst I've got your attention (ahem!): I can no longer double-click to
highlight a complete line of text that has non-text symbols in it (ie: in
Notepad double-clicking: COPY
"C:\WINDOWS\$NtUninstallKB884883$\explorer.exe "
"c:\windows\system32\dllcache\explorer.exe" captures just:
"C:\WINDOWS\$NtUninstallKB884883 and at the same time I've noticed that
added to the bottom of my right-click menu in Notepad are the lines "Right
to left reading order, Show unicode control characters and Insert unicode
control character."

Has anyone else seen this? I've no idea which installation caused this - nor
how else to find out. I'd love to be able to return to the default actions
and would appreciate any help on either topic.

Thank you.
