Stopping Windows Critical Update for IE6

How do I stop the annoying Critical Update pop-up from trying to get me to move to IE 6 --- I don't want IE 6 --- Perfectly happy with IE 5, and don't want this AOL clone!  The only reason it's "critical" is for MS marketing purposes!!!

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.


To disable the critical update from appearing on your screen, you have to disable Automatic Windows Update. From Control Panel, go to Automatic Updates. Click the radial button next to Turn off automatic update. Click OK.
