Prevent steam from updating

First, see Installing Games on Windows Vista for WHY and HOW TO move your Steam folder out of the Program Files folder tree if you haven't done so already.Simply disabling Windows User Account Control (UAC) or folder permissions is not sufficient.Steam offers many great games for Mac users to enjoy, but if you’re a casual gamer you may not be too excited about having the Steam client open itself automatically when logging in or starting up OS X.Fortunately, if Steam opening itself bothers you, it’s very easy to stop this behavior and only open Steam app when you want to on the Mac.I have very little bandwidth due to lack of finances.I just can't afford to have a deal that is for as much as I want.I start in 'offline mode' yet I still get these annoying Uplay updates.I'd like to know how I can stop this totally unnecessary update.

You can start Steam in offline mode and still play the game without any problems.

I am at the end of the month for my renewal bandwidth, but I considered playing an old favourite Assassin Creed 2.
