Are you serious? Still using a very old browser...
This prompt, however, is not asking for update but for setting up IE8. Just do that once, and no prompt anymore!

You can use either Group Policy or deploy some registry keys via a login script to disable the first run wizard if you need to do it for multiple users. Steps to do this can be found here: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/akshayns/archive/2009/08/19/how-to-disable-internet-explorer-8-welcome-screen-for-all-users.aspx

That is not an upgrade to IE8 prompt BUT it is telling you that you have IE 8, click next and follow the prompts and you won't see it again, otherwise if you close it or say 'ask me later' it will prompt you every time you open IE

You are correct. IE8 is already installed. How can I disable the window so that it does not pop up for end users ? Because end users will not know what to do when they see that window.
