    Default Windows 7 Update - How to NOT install one update ?

    Hi Guys

    Windows 7 says that I have some new updates to install.
    OK

    But one of them is an update for Office XP which I am no longer using
    (Bit it is still on my machine)

    There is an option to untick it.

    But every time I get more updates, it is still there ready to down load and install.

    I can't find a way to permanently delete this update ?

    Or is this impossible and is it that I will need to remove the old Office XP installation.
    So what colour is your Adkaf?

    Uninstall Office XP if you dont use it. No point having it. Hide the update,

    I know it is possible as I have done it but I'm not on my Windows machine just now so can't help more.
    Computers are like Air Conditioners, they stop working when you open Windows.

    Just adding to the above, hide it from a manual update, usually the option to hide is not there if its set to auto update.
