Windows 7: How to stop definition update via Windows Update?

How to stop definition update via Windows Update?

Hi all,

I wanna ask how to stop virus definition of Microsoft Security Essentials update via Windows Update. It's not about bandwidth-saving. I just want to do this via software itself either automatically or manually. How?

Thanks in advance.

It's not easily doable - MSE actually does the downloads and installs itself, and the WU entries are a secondary tool.
You'd need to change entries within the Scheduled Tasks, I think.
