Disabling iTunes update

Posted:

Hey, Windows Users!

Are you annoyed with the seemingly constant prodding from Apple to upgrade your iTunes/Quicktime installation with newer updates? Ever been typing away happily in an application only to have Apple’s nagware grab your keyboard and mouse focus away?

Stop being a victim and fight back!

You can disable this misfeature at the root. Click on your trusty Start button and get to Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Scheduled Tasks. Your screen will look something like the screenshot above. Either delete the AppleSoftwareUpdate item all together or simply disable it by right clicking on the icon and going to Properties.

Push verses Pull technologies: I think we know where I stand on this issue.
