How to disable Internet Explorer updates?
Hi,
Automatic updates suggest instealling:
"Internet Explorer 8 for Windows XP.
on my freshly re-installed XP.

However, the installation routine crashes with a blue screen during the IE8
wizard install

so it will never install and I got round this by downloading firefox and
setting this as the default web browser.

Now, how can I remove this IE8 update from the updates list so that it stops
prompting? There is no k-number shown so other posts I've found won't help.

Would you mind sharing the stop error code etc. you're seeing?

In the meanwhile having a look into
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/dd441788.aspx and
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/949220 might be helpfull.

While I strongly do recommend to even install IE8 in case you won't make use
of it as your standard browser:
Open http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com with IE6, run a "User defined"
search, clickl on the "plus" before "Windows Internet Explorer 8" beeing
offered, and tick the "Don't show me this update again" option occuring then.

BTW: IE8 = KB944036

Bye,
Freudi

Re: How to disable Internet Explorer updates?
What problems were you having that you thought reinstalling WinXP might
resolve?

Did you do a Repair Install or did you format the HDD & do a clean install?

Had IE7 or IE8 been installed before you reinstalled Windows?

What anti-virus application or security suite is installed and is your
subscription current? What anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)?
What third-party firewall (if any)? Were any of these applications running
in the background when you installed IE8?

Has a(another) Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on the
computer (e.g., a free-trial version that came preinstalled when you bought
it and which would have been reinstalled, *but invalid*, when you
reinstalled Windows)?

Re: How to disable Internet Explorer updates?

Hi Freudi,

The error is KERNEL_STACK_INPAGE_ERROR.
I can't follow the suggestion to disable shadow/cache RAM since this option
isn't offered in the bios.

I can't open the link in IE6 because I removed IE8 (thinking that was part
of the problem) and firefox doesn't display the search option when I open
your url.

Thanks
