Windows Update could do with a UI tweak

OK, after reinstalling and updating several Vista systems over the past few days I've come to the conclusion that Windows Update could do with a UI tweak.

Remember those language packs that Microsoft released for Vista Ultimate users?  Well, if you run a Windows Update on a Vista Ultimate system here's what you see:

Windows Update could do with a UI tweak

Listed are 34 language packs and each time you go into Windows Update and look at what's available, they're all there waiting for you.  There is a way to get rid of them but it's hardly a small job.  Right-click on one on the language packs, choose Hide update, click Continue on the UAC prompt (fortunately you only have to do this once), and then repeat thirty three more times.  Multiply that by the number of Ultimate systems you have (I have seven) and that's a lot of work.

Anyone else think that this is just a little bit inconvenient?  A simple way to select multiple updates and hide them in bulk would be handy.  After all, it's unlikely that there are many people out there who'll install all of these, so an easy way to make the ones you don't want disappear is needed.

Anyone in Redmond listening?
