    I have automatic updates turned off and it keeps bitching at me about that fact, is there any way to disable it?

    Yes. I am assuming that you are using Windows XP.

    Go into your Services configuration (Start -> Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Services).

    Find "Security Center", double click on it, click stop, then change it to disabled.

    You can also go into the Security Center in Control Panel and click Change the way security center alerts me. Then just uncheck whatever you like.
