    Windows Update (Vista Ultimate)

    When I run Windows Update there is an option (in the left hand pane) to "Restore Hidden Updates". To me, this implies that I can "Hide" updates (as in Windows XP). However, I cannot see where I can do this. What am I missing here??

    Cheers,

    When you are viewing the current updates, you can hide any of them that you do not want to install.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    To "hide" any update, simply right-click on it and choose "Hide update". <IMG SRC=http://www.the-highway.com/Smileys/Whistle.gif>

    <IMG SRC=http://www.the-highway.com/Smileys/deep-thinker.gif> To be honest, I think it was by accident. I've learned over the years that you often get a context menu when right-clicking things.
