Anybody knows hot to stop the annoying skype update notifications?
There is no way I will do any upgrades, since skype has burned me in the past, so it would be nice to find out how to stop those...
Try disabling the Update service.
Click Start >> Run >> Type services.msc /s
Right click on the Skype Updater and click on Properties and in the Startup type box select Disabled. Click Apply and OK.
Restart your PC.
you can use a personal firewall software to block skype update server
I have the same. All is disabled, but everytime the pc starts, or at sign in, I get the window to "upgrade, it only takes a minute."
I am tired of it and I don't need it.
Anyone get this solved?
The Updater service does checks (and automatic updates) in the background. Disabling automatic updates in Tools -> Options stops this service, but does not disable it. You can disable the service via Start -> Run -> services.msc and finding the Skype Updater service.
You may also notice that everytime you start Skype there still remains a pop-up dialog box prompting you to install an update. This is because Skype had already downloaded a new version in the background and was waiting for you to install. This happened before you disabled the automatic updates and disabled the service.
To resolve go to Start -> Run -> c:\Users\<your username>\AppData\Local\Temp and look for SkypeSetup.exe. Delete this file. Exit Skype and re-launch it to verify this fixed the upgrade notifications.
I am still using Skype 6.9 due to the recent addition of ads. This process helps make sure I don't get upgraded unintentionally.
