How do I hide UNWANTED Vista updates?
I don't want to see the language updates anymore. Is there any way to hide
the updates I will NEVER install?
Thank you...

1. Click View available updates
2. Right-click on the update you wish to hide
3. Click Hide Update
4. Confirm the UAC if needed

Thanx TaurArian. It's not user friendly is it?! I mean, I had to search
google to find this out, even the FAQs for Windows Update do not answer this
obscure option (IMHO!)

Cheers

Re: How do I hide UNWANTED Vista updates?
Vista prompts me to confirm via the UAC for EVERY item and there's over 30
languages! Is there a way to multi-select the updates and only confirm a
single time?
