Turning Off Apple's "New Software" Notfications

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?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Open Preferences in iTunes
General tab->Notification
Tick off the “When song changes” box

Or
Edit -> preferences -> General Tab or Advanced Tab -> Tick off "Check for updates automatically",
Or
Hide the purchases :
App Store -> Purchases -> right click on the app for which you want to stop updates  -> Hide Purchase

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.
