This has got to be easy, but I can't see it.
How do I stop Win7 telling me about a whole bunch of updates I'm not intereted in - specifically, about 30 language packs?

If its like Vista, highlight them right mouse / hide update. Dont know if you can do them all at once. You may have to do them one by one

Bingo! That did it. You can hide multiple updates by doing the CTRL / SHIFT select thing and then right-clicking.

yes you can hide multiple updates with shift, then right click.

Great way to get rid of all the Language Packs available to Win7 Ultimate

Just left-click the "header" above all the language packs, it'll highlight the lot.

Then, right-click on any of the actual items themselves and hit "Hide Updates", and it'll now hide them all :)

Darn, wish I had read this an hour ago as I couldn't find a way of hiding them all at once!
