Hi Megabuff,

Although this is a bit long winded [I haven't had time to read it all] it might help you:

Windows 7 wants to install updates even when automatic updating disabled?

I hope this helps!

Just go into Administrative tools under the control panel find services, scroll down to the windows update service and disable it.

I do this and no update notifications.
