    I'd like to keep iTunes 9 instead of "upgrading" to 10. Back in my Windows days, one had the option to permanently decline specific updates. Is that possible with OS X 10.5.8? If not, can I install iTunes 10 separately and keep 9 installed at the same time in the same account?

    Thanks for any thoughts.

    Yes. Just select the update and press the Delete key.

    But does that prevent it from ever coming back? It doesn't for me.

    Hmm

    With Software Update open, select the update you want to ignore and go up to the Menu Bar: Click Update > Ignore Update. Should be the same as hitting delete with it selected. You should not receive the update again unless you go to Update > Reset Ignored Updates. Never heard of that NOT working.

    Thanks guys,

    Should've known it would be something simple. After 3 years on a Mac, one would think I'd have learned to look at the menus by now:rolleyes:
