    As most of you use Internet Download Manager.I have an issue with it.It checks for updates regularly.I want to block the updates.I have googled it but not found a method.All are not working.I want to disable update checking because the plugin mozilla firefox disables after new update is checked.I used crack to activate it.ANY HELP.

    Use a firewall to figure out what the update server is then block it with your hosts file.

    I saved it as hosts.txt in the same location.
    I added it,but when i check for updates it checks and tells me the latest update is available.
    I think i should replace,If yes,what should i replace.

    I have a very simple solution. Just uninstall Internet Download Manager (IDM) keep yourself calm B-) and Happy.
    Your browser is enough to download most of the things. And if you have enough internet speed then, pausing the downloads is not a crying need. So, IDM is really not necessary. Use some other Downloader or it would be much more better not to use any downloader.
