How to shut down the computer without the update on Windows 7?

Sometimes when my Win 7 machine has programs that crashed, maybe Firefox, or IE, I would like to shut down the computer without installing any Windows update. That's because I worry that if IE or Firefox crashed, the system is not in a very stable state, so I would rather install the update later.

You can press Ctrl + Alt + Del and choose shutdown from the bottom right menu. It will not install updates if shutdown from this interface.

Easy way, press Alt + F4 on the desktop then select "Power Off" (or "shutdown", something similar...)
