And in the Windows Control Panel you can open Windows Update and Change Settings to avoid this completely - you can set it to download the updates but don't apply until you click OK, and whether you want recommended updates installed the same as important updates, etc... The defaults, IIRC, are to go ahead and update (since most users will presumably want to plug whatever hole MS is fixing) but the tools are pretty good for tweaking to whatever state you want.

If you get a warning that Windows needs to reboot soon for updates, you can temporarily shut off the updating for a day or so by typing the following in the Run box:
net stop "automatic updates"
