windows xp -- part two

For some people automatic updates are very annoying. I will tell you how to turn off automatic updates on Windows XP.

There are four ways, for myself, I like to play safe by doing them all.
1. Go to Control Panel, make sure you are on Category view, then choose Security Center. Manage security settings for Automatic Updates, then turn it off.
2. Start > right click on My Computer > Properties > choose Automatic Updates Tab > turn it off.
3. Run > msconfig > choose Service Tab > make sure the box beside Automatic Update is not ticked.
4. Run > services.msc > double click on Automatic Update > make sure the auto start option is set to Disabled and the service itself is stopped.
