I have recently switched from 'auto update' to 'ask me first'. When I choose not to d/load an update--how do I get rid of the icon in the tray? When I go back to the d/load window the box is checked again. Thanks.
send12me & anskybar. I know how to change the settings ie the way I am notified. The annoying little problem is when I select ' custom install' and deselect an update the icon in the tray remains, because there is an update outstanding. Even though I have unchecked the box.When I go back to the update window again the update is checked again. Presumably while the icon is still there I will have to keep accessing it to check for further updates. Can't seem to find your option anskybar.Though it does ring a bell. Got to go out now. Back this evening. Thanks for suggestions so far.
"What happens if I select "Don't show me this update again"? Microsoft Update will no longer ask you to review or install that update. However, if you hide a high priority update, you might be reminded that you’re missing an update that is critical to the security of your computer.
If I hide an update, how do I get it back later? On the Web site, click Restore hidden updates, and then review and install the updates that you want."
I always choose "custom" when asking for updates, it gives some useful other updates as well. Highlighting each one gives me the choice of "hiding" it by selecting not to be asked again.
