Windows 7: Optional Update: How Make It Go Away?

Optional Update: How Make It Go Away?

Is there a way to get rid of optional update notifications so they don't persist and just become annoying?

I got one now to install Bing. I don't know much about Bing; but I think it's a search engine. I use google and don't need another search engine. I don't want to reminded to install it everytime I get an important update notification for the next five years or so that I plan to have this computer.

Hello Tom,

You should be able to hide the update to no longer see it anymore.

Windows Update - Hide or Restore Hidden Updates

Hope this helps,

Beat me to it.
