Yes, it's a "hard" method and it could indeed kill WPKG Client while it 
does something.

However, "net stop wpkgservice" may not always work properly (or work 
very long), so as a one-off measure, it should do the trick.

sc config wpkgservice start= disabled

should disable WPKG Client service completely, so it wouldn't start 
after the next reboot.

Feel free to send a patch ;)
