Have you downloaded the Windows 7 Service Pack 1 beta yet? It’s a beta, so if you run into problems, you might want to know how to uninstall the service pack.
SP1 – IT Pros only – No Torrents!
The Windows 7 SP1 beta has been officially released by Microsoft and can be downloaded via technet. However, this beta is intended for IT professionals and is in no way a must-download; it doesn’t include any new features anyway. Also stay away from torrent downloads, they are often infected with trojans.
Uninstall Windows 7 Service Pack 1 in 3 steps:
So, you installed the service pack and want to know how to uninstall it now, for whatever reason? The Windows 7 Service Pack 1 is only a Windows Update. Windows Updates can be easily uninstalled in a matter of seconds.
1. Step Open an elevated command prompt
2. Step Enter wusa.exe /uninstall /kb:976932
