    I just installed Outpost Pro Firewall and turned off every auto update feature I could find in the settings yet the log files show it is still trying (and failing) to update the "news", which I guess is the PR stuff in the main overview window.

    It's more of an annoyance than anything, but is there a way to stop is calling home completely? Can I set outpost to block itself?!

    I deleted ''News'' folder on C:\program files\Agnitum.
    Also erased ''News Download Settings'' in Machine.ini and Machine.bak
