Block IE 9 from showing in automatic updates


Scenario : IE9 is on its way and you do not want to install it currently(Hey, You have your reasons!!!). In fact, On second thought,  you do not want it to be visible in your automatic updates panel only.

Solution : Microsoft is going to releasing IE 9 in its final form probably on March 14th.This also means it will show up in automatic updates panel as an “Important Update” .

If you want to prevent this from happening, you can setup a registry key that will block it.

The key is over here :

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Setup\9.0

The key does not Exit and you will need to create it. Once you do that, add this DWORD value:

DoNotAllowIE90

Set it to 1 to block, Set it to 0 to unblock.
