Windows 7: Remove hidden updates permanently

Remove hidden updates permanently

Is there a way to remove hidden updates, permanently?

I have about 50 stupid language packs that have been sitting there since time began. Then I updated to SP1 and now they're back, unhidden. I have to re-hide them all again.

Anyway to permanently killfile this stuff once & for all?

Thanks

Which simply requires selecting the first one, scrolling to the bottom and shift-select the last one, then right-click and choose Hide Update.

Takes maybe 5 seconds?

Yeah, but that still doesn't permanently get rid of them though...

Stupid language packs, be gone!

You, of course know that those updates have not yet been downloaded, right.
You hide them, and thereby hide the ability to download them.
So, you have to hide them every time a service pack comes out, shouldn't be a big deal.

Well, they won't show up again until SP2 so I wouldn't get too excited about it...

So there's nothing that can be done? No?

Because I consider it nothing more than crapware waiting to be loaded. You've already picked the language pack you wanted to use, so it shouldn't be a matter of; "Gee, I changed my mind. I want Polish or Swiss on my OS instead"

This kind of issue should be done & over with. Not left on standby in perpetuity.

Hey, nothing wrong with venting. And please be more polite next time.

Anyway, I'm done.
