Which version of the S3 do you have?
Generally, you can freeze whatever you want. Deleting, on the other hand, should be done much more carefully.
To stop the OTA update, installing a custom recovery like CWM or TWRP (which should be done immediately after rooting) will generally work. Most custom ROMs do this as well.
