I'm running Malwarebytes Pro on Win XP. Constantly during the day I get a pop-up window that the database has been updated, and I have stop what I'm doing to click on the pop-up to make it go away.

Is there any way at all -- even a registry change -- that can either make the pop-up turn itself off after one second or not appear at all? (Yes I know I need to be aware that I'm up to date, but I can do that manually.)

Hi,

Yes, you can disable automatic updates in Malwarebytes.
Open Malwarebytes > Protection tab > scheduler button > Update tab and there you can adjust the frequency for update checks, or just delete the scheduled task instead.
