If anybody knows how to disable these automatic updates without going through that process everytime I would love to hear.
Welcome to the forums!
All you should need to do is go "menu=>settings=>accounts & sync" and the first option should be "Background data"... de-select this and you should be ok!

Hope that's of some help to you!
