How do I stop Apple Software Updater from trying to install iTunes? (Windows)

Whenever there's a Safari or a Quicktime update the Apple Software Updater pops up asking if want to update. This is fine, however it also auto-checks a box that says 'Install Quicktime + iTunes' that I have to uncheck. I know this is only a minor annoyance but it's happened so often that it really bugs me. Is there a way to say "I don't ever want iTunes" and therefore save me tens of man seconds a year?

Select the update it is offering you (i.e., click on it), then in the Tools menu, select Ignore Selected Updates.

If QuickTime/iTunes/Safari are already installed on your machine, go to their options and deselect "Check for updates automatically"
