Hiding Win 7 Optional updates

I have 34 optional updates offered on my computer. All of them are for languages I don't speak. How can I hide them permanently to stop the constant display of "Optional Updates"?

I thought I replied. Thanks, that did it. I kept looking for a way to do it to all at once. I had to do it 34 times. I mistakenly assumed the programmers would allow me to do it to a bunch at one time.
