Hello Experts.

I am running Ubuntu 10.04.
I've unchecked an "updates" box in Update Manager. See picture.

But in about once a week, the program still pops up at first boot in a day disrupting my data entry into GUI. How to completely disable this popup?
(I am not asking to explain me security consequences, it does not matter.)

Thank you.no updates

Go to 'Startup Applications' and disable the 'Update Notifier'.
