    When attempting to install Windows Genuine Advantage Notification (KB905474)
    I get Error Code: 0x800706BE. The update process never completes and I have
    to cancel out of Windows Update. Article ID : 905474 Last Review : April 28,
    2006
    Revision : 3.0 indicates that this can be uninstalled by using Add/Remove
    Programs however if I go to Add/Remove programs, it indicates that it can not
    be uninstalled by that method.

    Help

    You cannot uninstall it by the add/remove method, its Genuine
    Microsoft Spyware and is designed to resist removal. Also its a Beta
    and should never have been pushed as a critical update.

    It is not "critical" nothing to do with security and totally
    unecessary.

    Removal instructions here

    You may have a bigger problem as yours did not install correctly in
    the first place.

    :cool:

    The article isn't specific enough to remove the code.

    Sure it is. I removed it following this page. Just search for WGAtray.exe.
    Delete it or rename. Then search the registry using regedit, and search.
    Delete anything that says WGAtray.exe. It will remain in the Add Remove
    program list, but it won't bother your computer.

    It does not get every piece of code, but it is castrated.
