How do you turn off Automatic Software Update????

    Can someone tell me how to do this please?
    I am going away and taking a mobile broadband toggle with me and don't want my usage swallowed up with automatic updates.

    Top tip: Did you know that if you have your computer set up to automatically update software, your data allowance will be used up quicker? Sometimes these updates can be over 100MB.


    Control Panel, Secuity Centre then automatic updates then just turn them off.
    (Presuming you're running XP)

    type in update on the search bar in the start menu go to
    windows update, then
    change settings

    For security updates very similar to above
