    My XP machine is not (ever) connected to the internet (by design).
    - the PC performs specialised tasks

    I recently had to replace a flatbed scanner attached to the XP PC, but drivers for the new scanner required XP ServicePack 3 (SP3).
    - so I have updated XP Pro with SP3.

    Now Windows keeps reminding me my PC is at risk, every time I boot, reboot or PC wakes up.
    - for the last 10 years it has not nagged, now after SP3 install ... it nags :mad:

    I have figured how to stop "Firewall" nag message :)
    - but I cannot kill the "Windows Updates" nag

    Q1: How do I stop "Windows Updates" nags altogether. ?

    I would appreciate some help :)

    OOPs :eek:

    Think I have already asked this question in March 2013 (for another machine) Automatic updates is turned off (nag)

    If I have trouble with those 2013 instructions I will bump this thread
    - that older PC died (HDD crash) in mid 2013 -- for memory the OS was corrupt too

    I use AutoPatcher for windows XP update, you have to edit the release.list to release2.list for windows XP SP3 updates

    cheers
