How to rollback or remove a patch causing unexpected issues on thousands of ConfigMgr Client computers?

How will you rollback a specific software update/patch that is found to be causing unexpected issues on thousands of SCCM Clients in your network?

Ans: By using, the following command in a task sequence: “C:\Windows\System32\wusa.exe /uninstall /kb:XXXXXX /quiet /norestart" (Applicable for clients that are Windows 7 or higher, where XXXXXX denotes the KB article /identification number, WSUA.exe is Windows updates Standalone Installer executable). Refer the URL below in reference for the Step by Step procedure for Mass rollback of software patches those are causing issues.
