Simple one I hope. At home I dont have broadband so I downloaded IE7 at work and istalled it at home. The problem is that Windows Update keeps showing me IE7 as an update. Is there a way to tell it that I have IE7? I know I can get it to stop showing me the update by ticking the little box but if Windows Update doesnt think I have IE7, will it not show me any related updates?

Well, is it IE7 as 'the' update, or is it an update for IE7?

Yeah, one other question - have you actually tried to install it once/twice or are you just assuming you don't want to install IE7 because you already have it installed?

Thanks for the quick responce
1 - Its IE7 itself, not an update for IE7
2 - Its not a beta/release candidate
3 - I'll try and re-install IE7 by removing it and putting it back on

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
