I receive error messages everytime I start my computer. I have disabled automatic update in the normal place on the security center, but it still tries to automatically update. I had stopped this successfully, but with an error in judgement, I upgraded to new Microsoft update, thinking it would fix the error problems. It just put me back to where I was before I disabled it before. There is a place in the registry or somewhere it can be done, but I can't find my notes.

HELP!

Found the answer if someone else needs.

There are basically two ways that are safe to turn these off. Way number one is in your msconfig (Start then Run then msconfig then click ok). When you open the msconfig you will see a tab named "Services" click on that and decide on what you want to disable. The other way is your services policy editor (Start then Run then services.msc /s then click ok). Either way you will be able to disable them. Below is the list of services, what each is and recommendation to turn them off or on.

Thanks!
