    True! Although if Microsoft changes the update name again would the folder reinstall? Maybe a non-power user would want to leave it installed but just hide the advertisement.

    You bet! I may add a fourth optional step that lists the exact Windows update to either block or uninstall (ends in 5583 if my memory serves me...and it usually doesn't).
