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!!!

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.
