  • Open Windows Update and click "Change settings".  Here you can select any of four options for Important Updates, from Never check to Fully automatic.  I like the one that says "Check for updates but let me choose . . .".

    If you don't find Windows Update in the Start menu, it can be found in the Control Panel.  You can also press Win+Pause to open the System page of Control Panel, and then click on Windows Update in the lower left corner.
