Option to disable update popups

This is becoming quite annoying recently - especially with the high frequency of updates, which are often irrelevant and frankly quite risky to proceed with. Several times I updated some of the tools just to get rid of the update nag, and ended up in a major PC surgery just to get it going again.

Ideally I’d like to be informed about a the version just once, not every time i start a program. Failing that, disabling checking for updates is the next best option.

I couldn’t agree more. I have been asking for this for a while now, but it has fallen on deaf ears. The coding changes to address this should not be difficult. I too have learned the hard way that if it’s not broken, don’t try to fix (update) it or you may regret it.

Very good point- due to problems reported here on some updates, I’ve been leaving mine as is for quite some time. I don’t have the time required to fix what they screw up.

This will become a much bigger issue in August, when the updates become chargeable.

It’s one thing to wrestle with the install to get rid of the nag, but If I’m forced to pay for the features I’m not interested in, I’ll be quite unimpressed, to put it mildly…
