Turning Off Vulnerability Scanner in Total Protection


In the Vulnerability Scanner of Total Protection I had

Scheduled Scan Settings set to "Don't Set A Scan Schedule", and in

Custom Scan Settings I have ticked "Don't Check For Windows Updates"

But I saw today that the Vulnerability Scanner ran by itself and it informed me that there were 29 updates available. 27 of them were Windows updates.

Why is Vulnerability Scanner running  when I have set "Don't Set A Scan Schedule"?

I don't want this to run ever. How do I stop it from running?
