Default Not painless

Every time I reload the session, it comes up again, even though I close that tab - again, and again and again.

This is so not painless I have now turned off automatic update checking (except for plugins). I'll have a look every now and then.

How would I shut off automatic update checking?

Kelvyn is right about this particular update, but why should I always be bugged about updating?
