I have had compatability issues with the wireless adapter that came with my motherboard (see sig) and vista so when the problem remained after reformatting I used a new USB adapter that we had in the house. This is now working fine; however, windows update continues to find (and fails to install) a 'recommended' update for my old wireless adapter.
I searched the Microsoft Knowledge Base for the error code (80070436) but there was nothing there.
Every time I shut down this update tries to install itself and fails even though I set it to ask me before installing new updates. Is there a way for me to manually remove this update from the list so that it doesn't try and update hardware that is no longer used?
