HOW TO PERMANENTLY DISABLE AUTOMATIC UPDATE CHECK IN IDM (INTERNET DOWNLOAD MANAGER)



Most annoying thing of Internet Download manager(IDM) is that it shows the update prompt after the interval of few days. IDM automatically check the latest available updates in background and if the latest version is available, it shows the update prompt.
There is no option available in IDM to stop this update check. Sometimes it creates problems to many users or they just want to get rid of this update check. So, I created a trick to bypass this update prompt and it will not show this again.
  1. Open Run by pressing Winkey + R

2. Type regedit.exe  and then press enter

3. Go to the key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\DownloadManager\LastCheck

4. Change the date to any future date of your choice in DD/MM/YY format. For example 01/01/99

5. Close regedit

6. Restart Computer.

Forget about 150 MB and 200 MB for 1 GHC deals here is a greater deal to blow you off 300 MB for 1GHC , 600 MB for 2GHC only. 1000 MB(1 GB) for 4 GHC only. 5000 MB for 15 GHC. 10000 MB (10 GB) for 30 GHC only. All offers last for 7 days. Hurry now!!! Do not compromise.
