I've just moved from Windows Server 2003 to 2008, and I'm having a very annoying experience with Automatic Updates.

In Windows 2003, when it "suggested" a package and I chose not to install, it asked whether I was sure and it never suggested it again.
In Windows 2008, when I uncheck it it lets me continue, but it keeps insisting that I install it, which is pretty annoying.

Is there a way to choose not to install specific fixes?



right-click the update and select Hide Update

  • no worries... it's not exactly that obvious :) – Andrew Jul 23 '09 at 14:13
