Removing Unwanted Windblows Updates

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Sens Fan Happy In OH, May 30, 2006.

  1. We have a machine at work running Windblows XP SP-2 and it's a legit
    copy - but I don't want to install the stupid Windblows Genuine
    Advantage Notification spyware on the system. Bill "I can buy and sell
    the world" Gates doesn't need to know whether this freakin' system is
    legit or not! I turned my Auto Updates off at home prior to getting
    this stupid update and now just go to the website manually and check
    every few days. But at work they will not allow me to turn them off
    due to "stupid people" working here.

    So is there a way to delete this spyware piece of junk so that Mr.
    Gates isn't looking in at the system and knowing which ones are legit
    and which ones are not? They all are - but that f**ktard doesn't need
    to know that. I don't trust Microshaft as far as I can bury their
    company under a tsunami wave! So short of turning the Auto Update off
    - or just removing Windblows XP altogether - is there a way to "remove"
    this update before it's ever installed - besides not installing it?

    I'm in no way suggesting you follow my handling of Updates but:

    I don't do the update thing, they are mostly for IE and OE which I
    don't use. I read all the time of some major and minor problems that
    were a result of an update.

    I installed SP2 - and the only update I've installed since was the WMF
    patch and that was from a third party.

    I don't get malware of any sort, it just a matter of save hex.

    Safe Hex; I swear I do this on purpose without meaning to.
