    Is there a way to hide unwanted "Available Updates"? By this, I mean that
    Windows Update continues to show available updates that I don't want (for
    instance, Croatian Language Pack, and the like). Anyway of saying "no
    thanks, and don't remind me again"?

    Thanks.

  2. Right click on the update and select 'hide' from the available list. The
    update will not longer be visible.

  3. And yesterday they have marked all these language updates as Important
    updates!!!

    It's about 35 language packs, each language pack consumes about 0.7 GB
    and to remove them from your system you have to go through control
    panel/regional language options... and find "remove language"
    somewhere there.... What a piece of cr*p!!! Unbelievable!!!

  4. Funny part, after you uninstall all these language pack from your
    system, they appear again in "Important" update list!!!
    And you can't mark them all at once and say "Hide update"... instead,
    you need to do it manually on each of 34 language updates that you
    don't want or need!

    I'm out of my words!
