Sorry about that just checked my laptop. I have set it to download but not install un till I say. For your Prob, go to Admin in Control Panel\Services try setting automatic updates to manual by right click change properties

Magik ®©,

If you want to turn the security centre off altogether, although it is not recommended, go to control panel-administrative tools-services, scroll down to security centre, double click on it, and click on stop.
