Having read buteman's post click here, no one has mentioned if having declined the "browser choice" update, they are then force fed it on a daily basis as I am! I've tried to banish it by right clicking on it and selecting "hide this update", but it then remains permanently ticked but with no explanation in the right pane. I suspect it would then go ahead and install anyway! Can I get rid of it without installing?
I have Automatic updates set to 'Notify me but don't automatically download or install them'
when the list of updates box appears (after clicking on the shield in systray) I unticked it, and only d/loaded the ones I wanted and then I got a pop up box to tick to be not reminded again of Browser choice screen update.
Thanks guys, I tried buteman's suggestion, but as I said, the update "ticks" its self again and I see a note at the bottom of the screen saying "total to install 1", followed by the vista UAC warning, (Vista) so I cancelled! Then did as lotvic describes but so far havn't had the pop up screen offering not to show it again. My XP machine did exactly as lotvic says.
One more thing about updates. On my Vista machine, I was informed of an optional hardware update for my graphics card, which I accepted. Checking under the "Drivers" tab of the card's properties window, the driver still says it's dated March 2009 (the update stated a date of Jan 2010)
