    What is the message that you receive? Windows version? Model number?

Assuming you use Windows, please verify if you are logged in as an Administrator or at least a member of the Administrator group. Otherwise you are not allowed to perform O.S. updates.

Windows is more up to date than th one tryng to download,I need to cancel this but do not know how to find it


. First of all click the Start button to view the Start Menu. Then choose the Control Panel option.
2. The Control Panel window opens up now.
Click the System and Security link from the Control Panel window.
Important updates provide significant benefits, such as improved security and reliability. Recommended updates can address non-critical problems and help enhance your computing experience. Optional updates are not downloaded or installed automatically.

6. Important Updates can be configured in four ways:

  • Install updates automatically (recommended)
  • Download updates but let me choose whether to install them
  • Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them
  • Never check for updates (not recommended)
If you choose Install updates automatically , there are additional options to schedule the update at a convenient time.

3. The System and Security section of Control Panel opens up. Here you can see the Windows Update link.
As you can see in the above screenshot there is direct links to the important Windows Update option here it self in slightly small fonts, such as Turn automatic updating on or off, Check for updates, View install updates . You may choose the required option directly from here. But we are going ahead to the dedicated Windows Updates section of the Windows 7 control panel by clicking the main Windows update link.

4. So now we are at the Windows Update section of our Window 7 Control panel. You can manually look up for any new updates by clicking the Check for updates button under the heading Check for updates for your computer fromthis window. In order to modify the Windows update option click theChange settings in the left pane.
5. Here you may change the way Windows 7 download and install updates. Configurable option include Important Updates , Recommended updates ,Who can install updates and Featured update notifications .
or if Never check for updates is selected:

Windows Update


Microsoft Windows normally automatically updates your operating system and accessory components. While these system updates are useful, sometimes it can help to customize aspects of the update process. Microsoft Windows offers many customization options, including the delay and disabling of automatic updates.

Open the Microsoft Windows Update directory in the Control Panel. This directory controls the Windows Update settings. Click on "Let me choose my settings" in the Turn on automatic updating box. This will allow you to set different customization options for automatic updates. Set your Important updates settings to "Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them" in order to be prompted in the future. When Windows needs to update, you will be prompted to select the update components you want to download and install and deselect the updates you want to disable. Hope this helps.

After it checks for updates, it will show you the important and optional updates.
  • Click on "...important updates".

Hardware updates are shown in this OPTIONAL updates tab.
