  • Hello coolyogi,

    Run the update as if you were going to install it, but when it gets to the End User Licensing Agreement/Software Licensing Terms dialog box, decline the Agreement/Terms.  The update will not be installed and you will not be asked about it again until Windows Update happens to download a new version sometime in the future.

    If you mean that it's present in Automatic Updates, but not currently installed, then you can use the options there to disallow install (at least until tit's updated again).
    If you mean that you are getting warnings that your system may be counterfeit, then you need to deal with the problem, not the warnings.
    If you mean something else, please explain.
