I'm running Win 7 home edition. I have turned off automatic updates. But today I just opened Windows Movie Maker and after sometime I got a message saying windows live updates are ready to be installed. I clicked yes and WMM, Live Messenger, Live Mail and everything got updated. How do I turn off this Windows Live automatic updates?
A similar discussion on Technet for this similar problem: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en/w7itprogeneral/thread/1d862bbc-5e29-415e-8ef1-d662cd96d5fd
Suggested remedy in that thread is:
It seems that Windows Live apps update can't be turned off from the Windows update which you have already done. You may have to check in the individual windows live programs if there is some option that could disable update prompts.
