I assume you don't want to uninstall it, correct? If you have no other need to have IIS run on this server, disable that service as well as the Update Services service. That should do what you're needing to.

How can you disable the services? Double-click the service or right-click and select Properties and select the Startup Type drop-down to DISABLE. That will prevent WSUS from 'working' as it should, but keep it installed.

i am a newbie in the area, i am sorry.
what services should i disable?  maybe there is more than 1 service?

the real reason why i want to do it, is because of my previous question:

It's not called that...as I mentioned above, it's called UPDATE SERVICES; also, disable IIS Admin service.

Hope that helps.

Now, if you're wanting to disable clients from getting updates, you disable Automatic Updates service.
