I haven't found a group policy or registry entry yet, and I've searched google, so now I bring the question to you wonderful people.  How the #%$#! do I disable the update notification but still keep the service set to manual?  I have updates that required this service not be disabled.  But even on maual in Win 7, the users still the the notification....  Anyone?

Thanks in advance!

LOL I can't believe I missed it. But for anyone else here is the Answer:

Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Update
Set the Configure Automatic Update to DISABLED

Computer Configuration > Windows Settings > Security Settings > System Services
Set the Windows Update to MANUAL startup and don't touch the security.

Now my updates from the external source (Dell|KACE Kbox) run perfect with no errors and nobody see a notification that I didn't personally create.  Cheers everyone!

The reason I've set my own comment as an answer as well is because only half the solution was found in

Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Update

The other part is also required for certain things in my environment to function properly.
