You can view and change when the selected software updates will be evaluated on Configuration Manager 2007 NAP-capable clients. This setting can also be configured in the properties of the update under the Software Update node.

To stop a software update from being included in Network Access Protection (NAP) evaluation, delete the policy by selecting it in the Policies node and pressing the Delete key. This will not delete any software update deployments or packages.
