    Hi there,

    Expand the update on the + button and choose hide this update;) On the
    windows update site that is.

    Best regards,

    Welcome,

    You should be able there to mark: Don't show this update again that is if
    you are updating through the windowsupdate web page.

    When you update through automatic updates:
    1.Once the download is complete, a message box will appear, saying "Updates
    are ready for your computer. Click here to install these updates." Nothing
    will happen until you click on this box.

    2.When you click on the box, the Automatic Updates dialog box appears and
    asks you if you want Express or Custom install.

    3.If you do not want to install an update click Custom, then uncheck
    (deselect) the reference to the specific update A box will prompt: "Don't
    show me this update again." You must check (select) the option to not show
    the update again, and click OK. At this point, the specific update will not
    be offered again.

    Best regards,

    Michel Denie

  9. When I get to the screen for updates every time i try to express or custom
    install so I can hide a sql server update that always fails it gives me an
    error message. Have been working with Microsoft support and everything they
    suggest doesn't work. How can i fix this? I'm using XP.
