Windows 7: Automatic update turned off but still windows updates...

Automatic update turned off but still windows updates...

What are the instances that windows update runs even if the automatic updates are turned off?

I turned my windows update off because it causes BSOD in my laptop. I only see that windows tried updating when I take a look at the system restore points. However, it cannot be seen when I open the installed updates in the control panel.........

Sounds like the update is sent out, goes to your machine and is then rejected, because your update is turned off. If you do not have the updates in your machine, I cannot say that there is a problem.
