I frequently do a net stop wuauserv, along with a proper SoftwareDistribution-folder cleaning. It already saved me hours of rebooting I think. I just have to be extra carefull to which sites I visit. Maybe one day a missing security patch will come and bite me in the back, though.
There is also this C:\Program Files\rempl folder, on which I deactivated any NTFS ACL inheritance, and gave access only to my user account. Since then my system is relatively peaceful, I get to choose when it reboots at least.
