Doug's Windows Tweaks And Tips - Stop Windows Update from Prompting to install Hotfix KB823980

XP_Hotfix_Prompt.vbs - Prevents Windows Update from prompting you to install a Hotfix you know is already installed.
Copyright 2003 - Doug Knox

Usage:  Download xp_hotfix_prompt.vbs and save it to your hard drive.  Double click the VBS file you downloaded and you'll be prompted to enter the KBxxxxxx or Qxxxxxx number of the Hotfix.  No checking is done to see if the Hotfix is actually installed on your system, so its your responsibility to ensure that it is.

Note: I cannot guarantee that this will work for ALL HOTFIXES.  Using the tools at my disposal, I have determined how the majority of checking is done for the presence of a particular hotfix.  This mechanism may not be the same for all Hotfixes and could change at any time.
