Turn Off Windows Update Notifications

Windows UpdateI am running Windows Vista and I have Windows Update setup to ‘Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them’. Sometimes I don’t want to install updates for one reason or another.

The problem with this setup is that when you don’t install updates, the program keeps alerting me to update.

I found out a way to prevent Windows Update from notifying me all the time.

  1. Go to Windows Update in the Control Panel
  2. Click on ‘View Available Updates’
  3. Right click on the update you don’t want to install and be notified of
  4. Select ‘Hide Update’

That’s it.
