So this is going to sound strange...

I got a popup in my system tray from Windows Update saying updates were available. I clicked on it, and it took me to Control Panel\System and Security\Windows Update\Select updates to install.

The update it wants me to install is Windows Live Essentials 2011. All this does is give the new version of MSN/Windows Live and all the associated programs. I installed this yesterday, decided I didn't like it, and uninstalled it.

Is there any way to delete/block/etc the update, so it will stop telling me to install it?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Right click on it, use the context menu to select the option you want.

To add detail for anyone else wondering: The option on the dropdown menu is called 'Hide' rather than delete, which was what I was looking for. – dragonridingsorceress Oct 24 '10 at 5:59
