Windows 7: Don't want Outlook update

Don't want Outlook update

So how do I tell Windows update to stop offering it to me?

In Win XP, I could uncheck and would be asked if I wanted it to stop offering -- but that does not seem to work in Win 7.

Look in the list of offered updates
right-click on the entry there, select 'Hide' - this will prevent it being installed, at least until there's a new version of the update released

Thanks. I was used to being able to simply uncheck it in XP -- had not occured to me to do a right click there.
