    Why would you want to do that???
    One reason may be you have a stolen/pirated version of windows.
    Why not Google before asking a silly question -

    Under normal circumstances I don't think I would want to go onto the linked
    sites in any case.

    It can not be uninstalled from Add/Remove Programs. The *safest* way to
    do it is to format and reinstall Windows and then Hide it when it's
    reoffered as it's an *Optional* update.

    WGA is different and must be installed to allow updating on the Windows
    Update website and download software from the Microsoft Download Center.
