How Is It On Your Computer? Which Update?
by Grif Thomas Forum moderator / September 7, 2006 8:42 AM PDT

Generally, you can simply choose "No" when it asks you to agree. As a result, it won't be installed. Did it come to your through you "Automatic UPdates" which you have enabled on the computer? Did you visit the Windows Update site, select the update, and it's now asking you to accept? Or did you download the update full installer manually?

There are only a couple of Windows Updates that ask for a license agreement to be accepted.. The "Malicious Software Removal Tool" and I think WGA.. There may be others, let us know which update number you're referring to...

Hope this helps.

Could this be the update you are referring to this past July, when you asked, 'just latley when i start my computer it says that i dont have a gunuine windows can i get rid of it'? Or is it a different one?

I am sincerely, not looking to "out you", only to save some unnecessary work for you and others, if indeed it is one and same.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
