Disabling Automatic Updates on Windows Server 2003, step-by-step

Preface:

Windows comes with a built-in feature to keep your computer always up to date with windowsupdate by including a program called Automatic Updates.  Personally, I want to know when I'm updating my server and not let some program do it for me, so in this case we would disable it.

Method:

Click the Start button, then right click My Computer and click Properties

Now, go to the Automatic Updates tab, and click the checkbox (to de-select) "Keep my computer up to date..." and click Apply then OK
