Hi,
I don't really see your point, but maybe this is happening because you just bought it, and you use it a few times only, so each time you used it there was windows updates to download and install, and by default the system must be configured to do this on its own.
You could install manually all actual windows updates once and for all, taking the time to do it without standing in front of the machine all the time, so it will not bother you each time you power on/off.

Still you should keep the default settings to install automatically new updates as this is your first weapon to fight against virus/spyware.

The configuration messages are part of the Windows Update mechanism and cannot be (certainly should not be) disabled. Not doing updates properly is a cause of Windows 7 (and 8) failures.

Changing when updates are done (as suggested above) can help, but whenever you say "update now", the messages will occur.
