Exposure Compensation in Aperture and Manual mode

I am a bit confused about the Exposure Compensation mode settings on my Nikon D40 when shooting indoors especially. My understanding is that when shooting in general that the EC dial I see in the view finder should be central as the camera its telling me that my exposure is off. I am finding that when I get the Exposure Compensation dial in the centre it changes the settings of the aperture and shutter speed, I would like to over ride all of this so I can tell the camera what shutter speed I want and what Aperture I want. Can I ignore the EC in the view finder and adjust it the post processing?
