I have bought myself a mobile wireless modem and pay by the gig. Micorsoft is eating up my account like nobody's business and I want to stop it.

So dear geeks, how do I disable Microsoft from downloading megs of updates everyday?

Head into your Control Panel, click "windows updates" and in there you can select your prefs.

You can choose to disable them "I wouldn't" or you can choose them to notify you only and not download anything and you can pick and choose what to download and install.

IE: only download security updates etc..
