sbs 2011 included WSUS.
which can be managed from the sbs console and the wsus console
You can select the computer in question and configure it now to be managed.

"now to be managed" should read "not to be managed"

not sure what the problem is then..if you have WSUS configured then the updates will happen almost automatically and managed by the server and the client shows as you have.

If you have removed the PC from the WSUS or are applying a different group policy then you may need to do a gpupdate on the Pc to have the change reflected.

I have noticed that with SBS 2011, when first setup a lot of updates get installed to the clients without needing your approval on WSUS, but after this initial group of updates it behaves as expected.

You can also stop and disable these services to prevent automatic updates -

Windows Update
Background Intelligent Transfer Service

It is not recommended to disable BITS service.

You need to configure group policy filtering for that computer object on windows upadate GPO.

The question is, why do you need to disable windows updates ?
