Even though it did not work for you, I would still suggest:
Open Tools menu, choose Options... item,
Choose Advanced (over to the righthand side at the top),
open the tab labeled "Update".
You have three options and can choose exactly one of them: You would choose Either:
Check for Updates, but let me choose whether...
Never Check for Updates.
The only question is, are these options and that path presented for you or not? Then, if they are, then do they fail for you when you had selected them?
