Cisco AnyConnect Trying to Update on my PC

I was trying to login to VPN via Cisco AnyConnect client to a Cisco ASA 5510.  But when I tried to log in - a new AnyConnect started downloading to my Windows 7 system trying to upgrade.  How do I stop this behavior?  Is it something initiated from the ASA?

Q. What level of rights is required for the AnyConnect client?
A. For the first installation, you need administrative privileges. However, subsequent upgrades do not require the admin level privilege.

This is usually expected behavior, the ASA is updating the AnyConnect software based on a new client version the ASA administrator has placed on the ASA.  Is there a reason you don't want the updated version of the client?

Yes - almost all of our users lack the administrative rights on their computers to complete an upgrade.  So this will just be an annoyance - and it seems it can actually prevent successful VPN connection.  I was surprised it didn't give me the option to refuse the upgrade.
