    M$ Auto Update.. ARG!!

    First of all, hello everyone!! I'm baaaack
    Hope all's well at this awesome forum. I learned most of what I know about design and scripting right here.
    I see you're still lurking around 'eh Boxer?
    Okay, if anyone can help me with this I would very much appreciate it: How do I disable Microsoft Auto Update. It gets by my Zone Alarm even though I have it locked out ( don't allow ). To me this is an intrusion and I don't appreciate that. If I want an update I'll ask for one. So please if anyone here knows how... I can't wait to find out.
    You know what I'd like to do with this Auto Update thingie...

    Well, that's about it.
    Thanks in adavance.
    Have a GREAT Ariel day!!

    Hi Spooks, Jus,
    my version of Windows is ME
    I did a search at google too before I posted and the results looked exactly like yours! Unfortunately most of them have to do with ICQ which I don't use or even know how to. I posted because...
    ... I knew I'd get a good answer and I just didn't have time to browse through all the links.

    Thanks for the replies.
    Have a GREAT Ariel day!!

    Hi there wontgetlost...been a while and I feared that you DID get lost ! Yep, still around...wouldn't say "lurking" though...lol. With 522 posts (2nd in top 10 posters)...been pretty active .


    As to your question; try going to control panel -> System -> Automatic updates tab -> select "Turn off automatic updating. I want to update my computer manually. The above is for XP. If you cannot do it that way, try searching "Help" for "Windows Update" and the results should include instructions on how to disable it. Good luck .
