andrew: You simply turn off updates in services.msc
That can be tricky because it's not just ONE setting. There are 3 options in Services (accessed via control panel > administrative tools > Services): "Update Orchestrator Service", "Windows Update" and "Windows Update Medic Service" some of which are not modifiable manually and, there is no guarantee that Microsoft won't reset the values--as Steve pointed out...

I don't trust Microsoft so that's why I chose to use "StopUpdates10"--there are other 3rd party options out there like the MiniTool but I liked how "StopUpates10" worked...
