    I have an update notice that I can't get rid of. It is greyed out therefore I can't remove the checkmark. The update reminder stays in my tackbar. The thing that puzzels me is that when I click on more info it does not take me to the microsoft page but instead to MSDN. What is this? This is the download, is it needed, if not how can I get rid of it??? I don't want to disable the notifier.

    msdn is the Microsoft Developer Network.
    would need to know the operating system you use to tell you correctley what to do.
    in xp goto control panel>system>automatic updates and turn it off there.
