Stop Opera from auto-updating !!!Hi,
I want to stay on v12.50, build 1491 but Opera keeps prompting me to install new update (1497) which crashes on Flash *and* which won't accept my custom keyboard shortcuts ! Moreover I'm starting Opera with the "-pd" switch to point to my custom profile folder so that I don't create useless folders on my system partition (under Local and Roaming)... So when the prompt comes, I have two option: 1- to accept the update which will lead to crashes, or 2- refuse but Opera will then automatically start with a newly created default profile instead of mine (indicated with -pd) !
I set the security option to "not check for new updates" but it still prompts me on every startup ! Can you please give me directions, it's really, really annoying !!! I'm *that* near to wipe Opera and switch to Firefox...

A couple of minor errors:
Remove the downloaded files from your Temp folder, and it will no longer prompt on startup. See your Appdata\Local\Temp folder for a folder named after your current Opera installation folder, for example %tmp%\Cprogramfilesopera\
The name of the upgrader folder is "CProgram FilesOpera" (note the space before "Files" part; Opera is the name of the installation folder and changes if you've installed in an alternative location)
Also in XP, the upgrader temp folder is within "Local Settings" directory not "Application Data" (AppData) directory.
