Windows 7 Ultimate 32 Bit, Windows Developer Preview, Linux Mint 9 Gnome 32 Bit

It is set to automatically update. To change that setting open WMC, go to Tasks>>Settings>>General>>Automatic Download options.

Or if you don't want the icon to appear: go to Tasks>>Settings>>General>>Startup and Window Behavior>> uncheck "show taskbar notifications" checkbox and Save. Good luck.
