I really don't want to get a particular update SCCM push from IT. I have local admin rights on my windows 7 machine. Is there a way for me to prevent the update from applying. I can see it in Software Center but cannot see a way to decline the update.
The answer is no. SCCM is a centralized management control tool, users should obey the management of the IT sector strategy. Current situation you could communicate with IT departments.
