In Start click Windows Update. The IE window will connect to Microsoft's Windows Updates page. Let Microsoft scan your system, and list the updates on offer.
Then hide the IE8 update.
The Windows XP update message displays ?Updates are ready for your computer. Click here to install these updates.? It is Internet Explorer 8. I do not want to install it. But, the message displays in the system tray every time when I open the computer. How shall I remove the pending updates and block downloading the IE8 without affecting the other Windows XP security updates downloading? Thanks for your answer.
