Windows 7: How to block Windows 7 Updates to avoid clobbering Citrix VPN access?

How to block Windows 7 Updates to avoid clobbering Citrix VPN access?

Hi

My spouse's laptop has Windows 7 Professional and it contains a Citrix client VPN access to her work.

For some reason, I do not have the details, Windows Updates clobbers the Citrix client, thereby she cannot access her work. Note that Windows performs these updates without asking the user if they want these updates to be performed.

We have to uninstall the Windows Updates and reinstall the Citrix client to get her VPN working again.

How can I setup her laptop to block (or at least ask the user) Windows from performing updates so that it does not affect her Citrix VPN access?

Thanks

Jeff in Seattle

Open Control Panel then Windows Update.
Click on Change Settings in the left pane.
Under the Important Updates section, change the dropdown to Check for updates ......
Click OK.
That way you will be notified of updates but you will have the chance to hide the one (or ones) you don't want.
