I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate with the Daz Loader. Win 7 updates have been annoying the @#$% out of me. At one point it was doing updates automatically without my permission. I would wake up in the morning to find the computer had rebooted, this f**king up my download. I found a fix for that: So it no longer auto restarts, but it still automatically downloads and installs stuff, then pesters me to reboot. I have to keep clicking on "Postpone". The last two times I've restarted, it's started to boot up and then it says it's configuring Windows (because of the updates just installed) and it takes f**king goddamn forever and then it says the configuring failed and it restarts and does it again. Then on the next go around it does it, but then loads the operating system. I just looked at the update center and it's still showing the 7 same updates as having not installed. These are the pestering updates shown in the update center: I've unchecked them all at least for now. It's frustrating because I'm working on something important and then it keeps bugging me about this s**t and then when I finally relent and have it try to install the updates, the bootup takes forever and then the configuration just fails. I can already see one update I definitely don't want -- that's the IE 9 one. I don't use IE. I prefer Firefox. Are the other updates important? Can I just choose not to install them and then make Windows quit pestering me over them?
