    I have updates set to notify me when I have updates to install. Well, am getting sick of the same ones coming up. Am updated current, but do not want to download I.E. 7 or their removal tool. I read something about hidden ones you didn't want to download. Where is it and how do you tell the stupid updater that it can quit telling you about the same downloads? If there is such a thing.

    Hide Windows Update
    Go to the Windows Update site, there you can click on the [+] next to the item
    description and then check the "don't show me this update again" box, and Windows
    update/Automatic Updates will be hidden and not offered unless you unhide it
