Removing critical update downloads from manager
Thanks in advance for your help!

I purchased a new HP laptop yesterday with Vista preinstalled… I went
through the setup process and downloaded all of the “critical” updates as
flagged by the manager… One of those was the NVIDIA graphics driver package
(uses GEFORCE 5150)… My Vista is setup to run in 32-bit mode… Apparently, one
of the graphics drivers was the 64-bit version… It would not install… But
now, every time I boot up the machine, I’m left with one critical update and
it’s the 64-bit driver… I haven’t been able to get it out of the update queue
(no delete option)… Anyone have any idea how to remove this from the update
manager… I’m not planning on upgrading to 64bit…

Again, thanks for your help

Right click on the update. Then hide.

Is there anyway to hide more than one at once?
