not only did I know the answer to this, i had already written the code to do it... i was just calling updatedate for no reason

DWORD now = clock();
DWORD elapsed = now - timesnap;
timesnap = now;
CStatic* fr = (CStatic*)GetDlgItem(IDC_STATIC_CLOCK);
char stemp[80];
CString str("Elapsed: ");
str += stemp + CString("ms");
str += CString(" Delay: ") + stemp + CString("ms");

The correct method of doing this depends on the control you are updating. For instance, SetWindowText is a method to update edit control text without calling OnUpdate, but to update a CComboBox you would probably use SetCurSel or SetEditSel. Reference MSDN help for the item you wish to explicitly update.
