How to disable v8.x upgrade to new version nag screen?

Recommended Posts

I appreciate V8.x has reached end of life, but I still have a need to continue using it on an old legacy PC.

I'd was hoping to reply in this thread in the thread below to receive an aswer on how to do this but it has been closed and archived.

https://forum.eset.com/topic/9227-how-to-i-disable-this-recent-upgrade-to-new-version-window-that-is-appearing/

Can somebody please send me a private message how to achieve this please?  I'm guessing it must be a entry in the registry that needs to be either edited or added.

Thanks in advance,

                               Robert.

The last version with support for Windows XP is v9 if that's why you have it installed. V8 has reached its end of life and we do not guarantee any further module and engine updates. Speaking about legacy PC, if it's running Windows 7 or newer, v10 and newer should be even lighter that older versions of ESET security products in terms of resource consumption.

Thank you replying Marcos, yes this particular system is running XP, I fully appreciate the risks associated with not upgrading but for the applications it runs and the light use it gets I don't want to perform an upgrade for this particular machine as it serves it purpose well as it is.

Can you tell how to go about disabling the upgrade message please?

Hi TomFace, thank you for the reply.  Somewhat curiously I already have the Regularly check for latest product version button unchecked, but I still see this upgrade message from time to time.

Not sure what to tell you about that as I run on v12. The ESET Mods will have to address that as I cannot.

Sorry.

Regards,

Tom

I can't answer you right now. Will need to discuss it with developers in January.
