Windows Live Essentials 2011 pushed as Important Update

I've recently started getting Windows Update nags on some of my machines to install some new important updates. One of these is Windows Live Essentials 2011. This is a package containing all the Microsoft cloud/social/bloat tools, things like MSN (Live Messenger or whatever it's called now), Movie Maker, Outlook Express (Live Mail?), Gallery and some other stuff.

I have no interest in these things and don't want to install them, but I keep getting nagged as it's flagged as Important. I think this happens when you have a previous version of anything to do with the Live tools installed on your system, otherwise it would be flagged as a Recommended update, which doesn't come with nags.

Anyway, if you're like me and you don't want this update, just click to review updates, untick it, right-click it and click Hide. This way it won't show up anymore, and no more annoying reminders every few hours :-)
