Using the "traditional" Start Menu, choose Start -> Settings -> Control Panel -> System -> Automatic Updates. Uncheck the "Keep my computer up to date" option to disable automatic updates, or change the options below if you just want to adjust it.Originally Posted by ciparis
I don't understand what you mean by "hide middleware to work" (is that English?) but you can disable Messenger's automatic startup from within Messenger. Bring up the Messenger window, then choose Tools -> Options -> Preferences, then uncheck "Run this program when Windows starts". Now Messenger will only appear if you start it manually.Hmm. Has anyone figured out how to get that option to hide middleware to work? I couldn't find it.... and the omnipresent Messenger icon annoys me.
