Default kill updates

hi all,

i have a rooted mytouch 3g. i do not want any updates, nor notification. i just renamed my otccerts.zip to .bak. i still had a system update request when i rebooted. i am also reading that the rename causes a battery drain?

being as android is linux based, i know it is controllable! but where should i look?

thanks,

david
