Please Login to Remove!

I've just found BlackBerryAutoUpdate startup process (RIMAutoUpdate.exe):

How to turn it off? I don't see any option in DM v5:

There is nothing to uninstall from Add/Remove Programs:

you turn it off by ticking the box next to it in the first picture!

you use ADD/REMOVE programs that is with your OS.
so you can click on uninstall/change
go to modify
and click through to uncheck AUTO UPDATE something or other
and CHECK FOR SOFTWARE UPDATES.

In my case it's not showing in Add/Remove programs in Windows. Below is the right procedure.

1) Ideally, just don't install BB Automatic Update when you first install BB Desktop Manager. This option is turned on by default, so you need to uncheck it:

At the time of original installation I actually expected an option to turn auto update off to be available somewhere in DM's GUI, but it's not the case.

2) If you already have Auto Update installed, you can run DM installer again, select "Modify" and then remove Auto Update component:

3) Because I never trust the installers modifying existing installation, I opted for a sure bet solution:

- uninstall DM (I use Revo Uninstaller because it's better than native uninstallers or Windows Add/Remove Programs, it clears some registry entries left over by native uninstaller)

- re-install DM without BB Automatic Update
