Thanks Elo and Howard
Elo : I hadn't seen the v9.04 (I'm still on v8.64), but I'll look into that later today - thanks!
In the Software Update app, under File is an 'Ignore Update' option. So just select the Epson update and go select Ignore Update.
I can't find this!
If I enter it via System Prefs, I get this (first attachment):
If I enter Software Update from the Apple menu, I get this (second attachment):
In neither case can I find an "Ignore Update" option, other than simply unchecking the tick-box
I guess I must be missing something pretty obvious here - any assistance gratefully acknowledged!!
