Method 2

In the interface, you do not have an option to change a live tile’s update frequency.
There might be some registry hack to do it.

An easier way would be:
To turn off individual tiles, right-click the tile on the Metro startpage, and select the turn live tile off option on the bottom toolbar.

Method 5

If you don’t want to use the Metro interface with live tiles then you can install Classic Shell which is available at http://classicshell.sourceforge.net/
This will remove the Metro interface being default and will default you to the regular desktop with a Start menu.

Note: Use and implement method 1 because this method fully tested our system.
