IE9 & WSUS

I see RC1 of IE9 has been available...
We have just decomissioned our old WSUS server and installed a new WSUS server.  I'd like to know how to stop IE9 from installing.
I have deseelcted update rollups, but there must eb a better/easier way of stopping this update only...

Suggestions?

The RC shouldn't be avliable via Windows update as yet, a Release Candidate is usually the first release for public testing but is still a beta release. There will still be some time before it releases to manufacture.

When it finally does relase, it should simply be a case of not approving the update for as long as you require.

Previously MS released a blocker tool, which added a registry entry to machines to block the ie8 update. They may release the same again for ie9.

I assume update rollups should be unticked to ensure the update does not get automatically approved and installed then?

I don't think the update rollups apply in this case as it's a completely new version.

Technically I think update rollups are bundles of small fixes put together for easier updating.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

I've just had a look, and IE 8 in my WSUS is classified as an 'Update Rollup'. All subsequent IE 8 updates are in 'Security updates'.

Then certainly to be safe ensure that Update Rollups have to be manually approved.
