How do you remove the IE 8 update from windows updates? Unchecking the box
does not stop the windows update icon from showing in the tray. I do not
want IE 8.
Windows Vista Home Premium SP 1

Re: Updates
1. Stop the Automatic Updates service:

Start > Run > (type in) services.msc > [OK]
Double-click Automatic Updates > Click on Stop
(Stopping the service will take a moment)

2. Delete the contents of the Download folder:

Start > Run > (type in) %windir%\SoftwareDistribution > [OK]
Open the Download folder and delete its contents
Close the window.

3. Run Windows Update manually and "hide" IE8.

How to hide updates in Vista: Click View available updates | Right-click on
the update you wish to hide | Click Hide Update | Confirm the UAC (User
Account Control) if appropriate.

To restore/unhide updates in Vista: Start | Control Panel | System And
Maintenance (If you are using Classic View, skip this step) | Windows Update
| Restore Hidden Updates | Find and select the update you wish to install |
Restore. You can now reselect it and install through the normal process.

4. Start the Automatic Updates service:

Start > Run > (type in) services.msc > [OK]
Double-click Automatic Updates > Click on Start
(Starting the service will take a moment)

NB: If Automatic Updates was set to "Check for updates but let me
decide...," you could have avoided IE8 being downloaded in the first place.

QED: Why did you approve the download of IE8 in the first place?
