Hello Mangolata =)

if its Win2000\XP, then Goto Start>Run>services.msc
and right clcik on Automatic Updates and clcik Properties
set the startup type to Disable and restart
Automatic Updates are disabled now !!
I donot have windows xp Sp2 here but going to control panel (i guess) you should access to security center and configure it so that it wont pop again..

right-click  My Computer then
select Properties then look for update tab
where you can turn off the automatic updating
of security updates.
