Turning Off Software Updates [Edited]

How can I turn off the auto-update for the software itself? There has to be a way to block it to access the internet [Removed - Violation of Community Guidelines] I do not want it to access the internet and turning off my internet connection just to use this [Removed - Violation of Community Guidelines] is not an option [Removed - Rant/Personal Info]

    Is there an option to turn off the auto-update of the software? If so, how do I turn it off?

    I have Home & Business, and would like to find this out as well. I invoice, track payments & expenses, and that's it. So, no need to update, since I don't use the online features. However, after about 3 weeks, the software updated, and out of habit, I clicked YES when the computer asked me if I wanted to allow Quicken to make changes.

    The next time firing it up, I got an error that since I was expired, I could not use the updated version, and would have to click the link, and reinstall the software, as well as a patch.

    FIRST, if the software is expired, it SHOULD NOT do an update.

    Then, after jumping thru the hoops, it starts, and gives me an error the patch is after my expiration date. Expiration date was Jan. 13, patch was Jan. 12. After this happened two more times, I tried the Jan. 9th patch, with the same result. Finally called Quicken, and after a half hour, and no patch, the software started, and did not give me an error. I have used it for threes days, hibernating so it won't have to restart. Today, I clicked on the icon, the Quicken screen popped up, and then it disappeared. It closed all on it's own, without warning. When I restated, I get the error about the patch being too new to use.

    Any help would be appreciated, as my tax appointment is Monday. Thanks!
