I'm just learning about AOMEI now, i'm a newbie

I turned off the auto start service for the scheduler, i like to manually do my backups.

I also want to turn off auto start for the ABNotify.exe program.
Will i still get info/alerts/popups/messages when i do a manual backup/restore if this program doesn't auto start ?

I just found there is a 4.0.2 update available.
For me the free pro version does not offer updating to this version

David I also have the pro version. I went to the AOMEI home page and clicked on "Compare with other editions". (Just above the Buy Now button.) That opened another page with a comparison of the different editions. AB Standard provided a free download. it was 4.0.2 and updated my 4.0.1 without problem. I didn't see anything to indicate this was a trial version or good for a limited number of days.
