Windows Genuine Advantage Notifications
Here lately I keep getting this update and naturally I refuse to install it because I got word and excel from a family member. (I know, I know...don't go there) Is there a way to block this so it does not come up everyday? Does it stop any other update until it is loaded? Thanks for your help
