    Can I delete items from the Windows Update list?

    Recently, my Windows Update (which is set to notify of essential updates but ask to install) told me I need to install a WD SES Device Driver.

    I have three 2TB MyBook external USB devices, so I checked with Western Digital to see what this is all about. They said it is not essential, and that if my USB drives are working fine (they are), I can ignore it.

    But a window keeps popping up to tell me that it needs to be installed.

    How can I remove an item from the list of updates (without changing the settings I have now)?

    Try right clicking the item and selecting "hide update".

    Shazam! That did it.

    I did right-click it before, but I was so intent on finding 'delete' that I didn't even notice 'hide update'.
