Windows 7: How do I decline Windows Live Essentials Update?

How do I decline Windows Live Essentials Update?

I admin that I installed Windows Live Essentials a few days back. I didn't like it (sidebar: it made dealing with my many Outlook accounts a pain, but that's another discussion). So, I removed it.

Now, I just checked for updates and Windows Live Essentials was in my list to install. I installed everything except Windows Live Essentials. How do I remove it from the list?

I have tried rebooting since my successful update of the patches I wanted.

I looked in the SoftwareDistribution folder, thinking maybe there was a single file that I could remove, but there's my entire history of updates there, which I don't want to mess with.

I certainly don't want some other user on the machine to OK the install, so I would like to hide it. Steps? Thanks.

That's alright, we've all overlooked the obvious at least once.

At least it was an easy fix huh.
