How turn off automatic updates for selected files?

I am running a Windows XP computer, and like many others, I am having trouble 
with the installation of certain Net. Framework files using Windows Automatic 
Updates.

Specifically how can I "tell" the Windows Automatic Updates feature to not 
list certain Net.Framework files for installation (ones that will not 
properly install) while Windows Updates continues to function normally with 
respect to other files? Or to put it another way, is there a way to 
temporarily list certain files for Windows Updates to ignore, until the 
problem with those Net. Framework files is fixed?
Thanks.
Richard

Let's address the "Or to put it another way," in your posting in reference

You should just fix the problem or attempt to - the problem is most likely 
with your machine and thus there will be no 'fix' put out for you and the 
few (in relation to how many total systems there are out there and how many 
do *not* have this issue) that are having the trouble.  More than likely 
something you installed (allowed to be installed) in the past has affected 
your machine in such a way that you are now having trouble with some 
specific updates.  There are work-arounds and fixes out there for you to try 
(like uninstalling all .NET Frameworks, doing a little other cleanup and 
re-installing the .NET Frameworks again) that will get around/fix the damage 
done to your machine by whatever.

You can always turn off Automatic Updates (or at least fully automatic) and 
then pick and choose what you want downloaded/installed on your machine. 
You can even select to HIDE updates you choose not to install if you use 
that method.  In other words - if you want control - take control.

automatic column.autofit
I have a csv text file that I want to automatically open with column autofit. the text file is generated from a query to a remote database, so it cannot contain any code. pls advise mechanism.

Why excel close all files when I just want to close one files

reading pane keeps turning on and preview pane keeps turning off
I've been using outlook 2007 for about 6 months and all has been ok until now. My normal view is to have the reading pane turned off and the preview pane turned on. however, now things changed all of a sudden. now when ever I go to the inbox the reading pane is turned on and the preview pane is turned off. So I go to the view menu and reset the view to what it should be. if I click on any other folder such as sent items and back to the inbox, its back to reading pane on and preview pane off.

update query 01-11-08
I tried to use update query to update data that I didn't have prior to inputting the rest. I get the data whenever my supervisor can give it to me which is hours worked.

Toolbar for automatic series fill??
I have a customer who swears that in Ofc 2002, there was a toolbar that was used for automatic fill of alpha and numeric series, i.e. A, B, C and 1, 2, 3, so that he could type A in the first row and B would be entered automatically when he went to the next row. He has upgraded to Ofc 2003 and can't find the toolbar, and neither can I. Any ideas? Perhaps the customer had a custom designed toolbar along with some other VBA, but AFAIK there is no such default TB in any version of Excel. There is a Fill>Series dialog box in the Edit menu, but even it will only work with certain ac...

How do you turn off autoformatting?
I am making a spreadsheet that is essentially a record. In one of the cells, I am entering the old/new values for something as 4/80, which Excel instantly turns into April-80. I can format the the cell back to General, but the number that results is not 4/80. And if I go in and reset it to 4/80 again, the autoformatting kicks in again and the whole process starts over. While there are plenty of ways I could work around this, from changing the way I enter the data on up, it has become a sort of matter of honor now. How the heck do I stop Excel from overriding everything I enter? -- nickt --...

Automatic control names
I feel stupid asking this question, but I can't find any previous posts about it. Is it possibe to set Access 2007 so that the forms wizard will name the controls properly? The default is to name the control with the field name of the data source, but it ignores the proper naming conventions (or at least what I was taught was the convention). A textbox should be named "txtFirstName", but instead it just names it "FirstName", which then requires us to have to go through and manually rename all the controls. I suppose that a VBA routine can be written, but af...

Account register- Automatic Catagories?
Hi all: I have a question about the account register...just started using my Money 2002 again. When I download account activity from my checking account, there is quite a bit of information already in each trasaction. Then I try and clean up the month's transactions, and when I change one transaction, Money automatically updates a whole bunch (almost all) of others. So, if I change one transaction payee to "Gas Station," all of the sudden a bunch of debits from the grocery store become "Gas Station" purchases as well. Is there some sort of automatic codin...
