No automatic install, please.....

Discussion in 'Windows Update' started by William Lurie, Aug 13, 2010.

  1. I don't want Windows Update ever to install anything except when I have
    already reviewed and accepted it.

    Overnight last night it decided to do a bunch of installing and the
    Windows Update site itself has changed.

    The site itself has links which just sit there indefinitely after I
    click on them. Like "Review History", and their "Assisted" link.

    Using XP Home/SP3.......how do I get to make my own decisions again?

    Thank you.

  2. Use the Automatic Updates control panel (not the WU web site) to select the
    option you want, probably either "download but don't install" or "notify me but
    don't download or install".
