I think I'm having the same problem. Mine just started last night and I put
up a post on it earlier today. Does anyone who has experience with MS think
that they might work on fixing this problem?

To add, you will have to expand the item to see the description under
which is the checkbox that you have to select to hide that item. Dig.

when I click custom, I got a page that says 'software upgrade for your
windows components required' with a box to click 'download now'. should I
do the download? I am loathe to add more bugs into the mix.
