Disable "check for new version"?

Post by bmlja21 » Wed, 17 May 2006 07:29:01

I want to disable MSN Messenger from checking for new versions, but I cannot
find a setting to do this within the program. Anyone know it?

Or is there a GPO that can be set to prevent checking??

Or even maybe a reg hack???

I'm afraid not, the older ones were removed a long time ago and as far as I know, no
equivalents have returned.

However, I have yet to do a significant search for such a thing in the latest 8.0 beta.
