Stopping Windows 7 Starter patch updates

Hi

I often get a list of updates for my Netbook's Windows 7 Starter OS
updates just as I'm on the way of shutting down the Windows.

How can I disable this?  Pls provide step by step instructions

sometimes when windows has downloaded updates but not installed them then when you log off/shut down you can have the option to shutdown or shutdown installing updates

have u turned off automatic updates in control panel? I assume that option is still in win7 starter.
the setting I have is to inform me of updates but not to install them, that way I install them whenever I want

in the bottom right hand cornet of the home screen select the blue updates icon double click it

on the windows update page select "change settings" in the upper left hand corner

on the "choose how windows can install updates" page under the important updates in the drop down box select "never check for updates"

and unselect all the other check marks

be aware that windows updates are important and you will get hacked and have viruses it you do this!!!!!!!

Thanks chaps, but I'll need more detailed instructions, step by step & remember
I'm using Win 7 starter, not the full Win 7.

So I can't find a blue updates icon on the bottom right but a little white upward triangle
which has several options in it, namely Media Graphics Accelerator, Docking Touch, ...

At Control Panel, there's several options, System &Security,  User Accounts, Network &
Internet, . . . ,  so which one do I select?

I'm only a Win XP user, just got a Win 7 netbook not too long, so bear with me

oh yea win7 lol, you cant do that in control panel.

When you click on Start, All Programs do you have a shortcut to Windows Update? Click that then select Change Settings

Here you can change how you want windows update to be performed.
