    Windows Update Service on Windows 7

      I do not want windows update service to run on machines in my domain so patches aren't automatically downloaded and/or installed. but it looks like now shavlik is using the windows update service to install patches on windows 7, i can see the event log messages that patches fail to install because windows update service is not running or disabled(which it is by group policy).  Is there a work around for this issue, or do i now need to make sure windows update is running? I have used shavlik for 7 years and have always had windows udpate service disabled by group policy. Is there a way around using windows update service or is this a microsoft requirement now?
