Panic mode set in.   We have a WSUS server (Windows Server 2008) and setting up PC's with Windows 7.  

Do I turn off , in the control panel, the automatic updates ......  so it pulls from WSUS.    The workstation IS showing up in the WSUS console.

If I turn it off....  How do I turn it off?   I don't see any setting to do that?

Nope. WSUS actually relies on the automatic updates engine. So leave it be.
