Steam Automatically Updates My Games
Hello everyone, I have been facing a problem since yesterday. Steam automatically starts updating games whenever I boot my PC. It's very frustrating. Can anyone advise me on how to disable Steam from updating games automatically? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hopefully this helps:

Select Steam, under Best Match.
  1. Click LIBRARY on the menu bar. ...
  2. Right click on the game for which you want to stop auto-updates.
  3. Click UPDATES from the top menu.
  4. Open the dropdown menu under Automatic updates.
  5. Select Only update this game when I launch it.
  6. Click CLOSE.
