Windows 7: deselecting updates

deselecting updates

I have had the 31 language packs sitting in my update box everytime I check manually, for a month now. I thought this would be obvious but @ least for me it isn't.
How does one remove optional updates from showing in your update "check for update" menus?
Also I DL'd spell checker for explorer, it shows as installed but when I click check spelling here it asks me if I want to dl'd it? What's up with that?

MSE updates flagged in Win 7 updates but not XP Mode updates
I find it odd that when I do a Windows Update in Windows 7, the Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) updates are also found. But if I do a Windows Update in XP Mode, the MSE updates are not found. I don't suppose this is controllable? I'd like the Windows Update to find MSE updates.
