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


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.
