I'm using Yandex browser (Chrome engine) on Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit and I can't find the way to block its auto updating. I tried all I could: blocked the update.exe in the firewall; deleted/modified the update.exe; deleted the task in Task Manager; I changed the update.exe's compatility mode to Windows 95 256 bit and had the screen randomly blacking with huge black pixels (I guess it was trying to update). Nothing worked because the browser created new tasks in Task Manager and replaced the update.exe file, I see this as a hacking activity. The only thing I didn't try is blacklisting the connection in the hosts file but I don't know the IP address. I'm asking you gurus here to help me find a solution because it's frustrating, these guys at Yandex don't understand that forcing the auto-update it's BAD because my internet connection has download limit and sometime is unstable!
