Windows 7: Quick question about Automatic Updates

Quick question about Automatic Updates

Just upgraded from XP and I have a question about Automatic Updates. In XP if I skip an update it gave me the option to not prompt me for that update again. I don't see that option in Win7. Is there a way to keep it from pestering me about updates I don't want?

You can right click on the update you don't want and Hide it. That's about all you can do.

There is a folder for policies, but it is empty. Also, the settings for updates does not have any option of that nature. So what...
