    Is there a way to tell Windows Update that I never want to see 34 Windows Vista Ultimate Language Packs in my "Choose the updates you want to install" window? (Windows Vista 32 bit)

    It is tedious because of the number but right click each update and select "Hide ..."

    You should be able to click the top one then scroll down and do a Shift click ( just like you can in Windows Explorer), then a right click one of the selected entries and select Hide. This should get them all.

    I've never had that work when hiding updates in Vista or Win7.

    It did for me on the Language updates for Windows 7 RTM.

    The trick, once items are selected, make sure you right click within the shaded area of a selected entry.
