Windows live update

Windows live mail is telling me thereis a new up date. If I do download and execute it comes back with message of registry error and how to fix. In my registry the location does not exists . I have reverted to previous version . Question is in order to use the update and that phantom error should uninstall my version ?
Now I am guite happy with this version , how do I stop the nag about update ? Michael

Set your windows update to notify and not install. When you get the update, right click and then hide. You will not see it again.
