Whenever I switch on my Windows 7 laptop, I get a system tray flag that tells me an update is waiting to be installed. I click on it, and it tells me that the "important" update, Windows Live Essentials, needs to be installed.
I have rejected this update for several days in a row, by unticking the checkbox (I *don't want* WLE!). But every day it's back again.
How do you refuse an update permanently, once and for all, so that it doesn't keep trying to get you to install it?
This is the way it works on WinXP I guess the proceedure is much the same in Win7. Click... >Start< >Help & Support< >Windows Update< Click on either... 'Express or custom' So that it does a System search for what your system 'needs'? Then tell it to 'Hide' what you don't want it to remind you about. It won't mention it again. But if sometime in the future you happen to change your mind, you just go back and manually unlock it.
