I'm not using Automatic Updates, but instead manually going to Windows Update once a week or so. So I've got Automatic Updates turned off.

However, now that I've done this, I always have this red shield with an x in it in my system tray (where you'd usually get the yellow shield with updates turned on when there are updates available). It also gives me a warning that they're turned off every time I start up my computer.

How can I get rid of this? Do you have to have Automatic Updates turned on to get rid of it?

Thanks for the help!
