Dear people who want to install updates on my computer

If you are going to pop things up intermittently saying "There are updates, would you like to install them?" then please give me the option of saying "Yes, and never ask me again."

Because much though I like you closing security holes (and offering me new functionality), I do not like having things pop up whenever I open your app (or when I'm doing other stuff).

VLC, I'm particularly looking at you, with your download dialog box that overlays the screen that's playing the video I just double-clicked, and makes it impossible to click pause while the updates is downloading. Seriously. What the fuck?
