On our patron-used laptops, we have iTunes. I have disabled automatic updates on them; notifications for new updates still display, though. How would I go about disabling these notifications?

I've actually done this. The updates aren't installing automaticlaly, we're just getting notifciation pop ups on the updates. That's what I would like to eleminate.

I figured it out. I'm proud of myself! There's a "check for update" setting within Apple Software Update that cued these prompts. Once I told it to "never check for updates," the prompts stopped displaying. Thanks for your effort, good sir.
