    Well.... unless you're talking about the Metro/Modern apps, and are talking about preventing an auto update, you could try and disable it. Open the Store > Charm Bar > Settings > App updates. Disable it there. Not sure if it applies to the built-in OS apps. But surely will require you to then update all apps manually.
