    Getting update notifications even after disabling Windows Updates on Windows XP

    I have already turned off Windows Updates on my PC running on Windows XP. Even so, when I start using some applications, the system will show up the message that there are updates available and itstarts to configure the updates. How can I prevent this?

    Turn off the Windows Update service from your system and see whether it can resolve the issue. First of all, hit the Windows key+ R from the keyboard and wait until ‘Run’ dialog box appears on the screen. Type services.msc into the ‘Open’ field in that box and make a single press on ‘Enter’ key. The ‘Services’ window will then appear on the screen. Navigate through that window and right click on ‘Windows Update’ option. Check the menu pop up on the screen afterwards and choose ‘Properties’ option. You can then view another small window from which press the ‘General’ tab. After that, make certain that the ‘Startup type’ is set to ‘Disable’. Then, hit either ‘Apply’ or ‘OK’ button for saving the settings.
