I have a managed Windows 7 PC, on which I don't have control over the download and installation of Windows updates. In my Action Center notification icon in the taskbar I keep having the message

Windows could not check for updates automatically. (Important)

along with other notifications. However, since I have no control over Windows updates, is there a way to stop being notified about the presence of new updates?

    You would need to adjust the group policy that controls this behavior. – Ramhound Jan 28 '13 at 16:06

Speak to the person or team that manages the Windows 7 PC. They can control this through a Group Policy or whatever they use to manage the systems.
