    Urm, by updating it? Though you can disable or shall i say postpone that by going into config menu, under General select Security and increase "Alert, if last update older" option from 3 to some higher, like 7 days. I're really advised to update in such long period, otherwise antivirus can't really do it's job.

    that's right. there's no use in having an outdated antivirus.

    I kill the scheduler service, make all the prompts either off or as many days as they allow so I dont' see that stuff. Then I have a shortcut to spawn the file preupd.exe, which essentially starts the updater. I made a script and compiled it so that I can just pass a command parameter with it as to what days I want it to update. Then on bootup, this runs. I also coded in a method to see if it has updated today or not, and if it has, it does not start the updater. This helps if you boot up more than once a day.

    Who cares
    Go to preferences, activate Expert Mode.

    I guess it's this:
