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,
