Have you gone into the Security panel and turned off Auto Update?

As far as I know, the only way to turn it off is to turn off the Windows Update utility. Of course, if you have it on, you probably have it on for a reason.

Is it really that annoying? It's not like they put out a new update every day. They just put out one this week, and I think the last one was like 3 weeks ago.

Windows update keeps popping up for this anitispyware program or something. Every few weeks or so. No matter how often you choose "No, don't remind me again".
