How to stop Windows update from downloading updates when I update MSE

I'm currently on holiday and am connected through an expensive 3G modem plan. Whenever I try to connect, Windows update starts to download files. Every now and then I need to update MSE virus defs but Windows update downloads files GRR! What do I do about this pest? I just disabled the windows update service which obviously prevented me from downloading MSE defs

Have you tried setting Windows Update to not Download updates?
You could also set it to not check for updates while you are on holiday.
