How to avoid updating msn
Even if you’re part of the lucky ones that has WU set to manual, chances are the next time Microsoft releases some real security updates, Windows Live Essentials 2011 will be installed along with it as it is checked by default.This is suspiciously close to how adware and spyware behaves.Windows Update (WU) traybar is notifying that there is a new “Important Update” that needs to be installed.
A friend had the following problem on his machine and of course, I was called to the rescue.b) The tactics for installing this software bundle are less than ethical.Microsoft has configured it so that it tries to install again and again, even if WU is configured as allowing the user to choose which updates s/he wants and even if the user already chose not to install it.I guess if you can’t convince users to download and install your software the next best thing is to push it down their throats whether they like it or not. I decide to un-check the “Important Update” and forget about it.
But to my (second) surprise, the WU notification from the traybar does not disappear as it normally does when you decide not to install an update.
Solution 1 In my case I reinstalled the network card and strangely that seemed to do the trick!
