Can't hide updates?

4 updates will not hide and return whenever I check on updates. Is there anyway to hide them for good?

Sounds like they are already downloaded, if you go to,

C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download

and delete whats in that folder you should be able to hide them next time they pop up.

To hide an update, you right click on it without the box being checked.
Is that how you're trying to hide them?

if you make changes to your computer account

I have found that I could not hide my updates because I made changes to the local computer account that I was using at the time, in Computer Management. I had to log out and log back in again so that I could actually hide the updates I wanted hidden.

How can I hide updates?
It seems that quite often there's at least 1 in the batch each month that I don't think I need ( generally dealing with games or foreign language) & I'd like to be able to not have the "updates are ready,etc." always popping up. I haven't been able to find a 'hide' option like there was in XP.
