    You should have your automatic updates set to inform you when there is an update but not to automatically download or install them. Does your modem work? If so you don't need this.

    Even though you are not going to need/want it, it will keep the yellow badge at the bottom of the screen.

    I have a problem like that with a machine at work where it wont install updated Nvidia drivers and it will not go away.

    I'd be interested in finding out how to get rid of it WITHOUT turning off auto-updates.

    Bring up the update window that asks whether to Express Install or Custom Install. Choose custom install and uncheck the item you want it to ignore. Click OK or whatever and it will ask if you want to remove the items you unchecked. It shouldn't bother you about it after that.
