Why does Opera update even when I'm not using it for weeks at a time?

And is there any way of stopping this? It keeps on putting a shortcut in my Start Menu. Any way of stopping this? I see nothing in Services.msc or msconfig to control this and there seems to be no setting in Opera that controls this. For a browser known for user control this is a very strange feature.

@leocg That FAQ was wrong. On my About Opera page it doesn't mention the location. This is what it says on mine:
Opera is up to date
System:Windows 7 64-bit
But no worries. For others that want to do this just note your version number in Help, About Opera, then look for that folder in your Program Files, Opera folder. Inside that folder you'll see opera_autoupdate.exe and that's what you rename to stop it from updating automatically apparently.
Now can I update it manually somehow or do I have to rename this back to the original name to get it updated? This is one convoluted design choice they made!
