  • Hi,

    You have 3 options to control the popup in a client/server environment

    Option 1:

    If using WSUS then remove the update KB2934207 from your XP Boxes, then ensure KB2934207 is excluded from any future updates between now and the end of support

    Option 2:

    Create a script to silent uninstall the update:

    wusa /uninstall /kb:2934207 /quiet /norestart

    Option 3:

    Not an ideal option, but, assuming they are standard terminals (user independent) then create a new XP installation on a VM or physical machine, then install all updates except for KB2934207, sysprep the machine and use windows deployment services to capture a new image and roll it out to your workstations.


    If you find my information useful, please rate it. :-)

  • I've seen no mention of any GPO function to do this, but apparently there will be a user functional check box to stop the popup from appearing in future months.

    Please do not read this sentence. Please ignore the previous sentence.

  • No such group policy exists.

  • But, you can hide the popup just by checking the box on popup "Don't show the message again"

  • We are, but not all systems yet.  If someone wants to fund the migration we could move faster...

  • As of now, you have only option to check the box.

  • Still looking for a way to do this via GPO/registry entry or even via a script.
