How to disable "Check for Updates"

6 users found this article helpful

The Check for Updates feature can be disabled in the Registry Editor. You can do it this way:

1. Open Registry Editor.

2. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Nico Mak Computing\WinZip\UpdateCheck.

3. Change the registry string value NoUpdateChecking from 0 to and save it.

If the same string value change is made in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE it will propagate to any new user profiles that may be later added to the same computer.
