Is there a way to block a microsoft update from appearing in my system tray telling me I need to update it. I don't even want my system to know it is available. he update has to do with a X86 bit system where my OS is X64 bit.

TIA

XP is the OS.

X86 refers to your processor description, nothing to do with 32-bit or 64-bit processors or operating systems.

You can disable automatic updates from control panel.
In the control panel, double click on Automatic Update icon.
In the options, select Disable. :thumbsup:

If that is the case and it failed to install, why would that be?

Here is the update that is failing

Trying to install MS .NEt framework 3.0 X86 (kb928416) but it fails. How can I fix this issue?

TIA
