"Automatically check for updates every ..." - Driving me crazy!!!!

I used Premium for Workgroups 2006, XP Professional - single user.

 

I dont want Act to check for updates -- therefore, I have tried unchecking or setting the months to 100 - in the "Automatic check for updates every ..." The reason I dont want to check for updates is that it resets all the settings I customized - e.g., email including email signature, calendar options etc.

 

HOWEVER, Act is wasting my time by checking for updates even though I have unchecked the box or set the time to months=100. And each time, I have to go in and customize my settings.

 

This is wasting my time!!!!

 

Any suggestions will be helpful.

You could also go to http://www.durkincomputing.com/

 

Durkin has created some great addons for Act. One of them is the FREE no-updater-screen addon.

I think this is exactly what you are looking for.
