    Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit

    Go to Start , click Control Panel, click System and Security, go to the Windows Update section and click on Turn automatic updating on or off.
    Then choose the setting you want (never check for updates automatically, check for updates but let you choose whether to download or install, download updates but let you choose whether to install them or install updates automatically).
