    If you go to start\settings\task bar and menu then click advanced
    then click remove, a list will appear, at the bottom of the list will be the shortcuts for the start menu. Highlight the windows update shortcut and click remove.

    You could do this:

    Go to Start/Run, type Regedit.
    Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer.

    Create a new Binary value called NoWindowsUpdate. Set the value to 01 00 00 00.

    To restore, change the value of the key to 00 00 00 00.

    Good luck,
