Stop MiniTool Part Wizard Home Edition 8.1.1 asking to update.

How do I stop MiniTool Partition Wizard Home Edition 8.1.1 from asking to update? I don't want to update, I have my reasons. Every time I open the program it ask, A new version has been detected, do you want to download the new version I clicked on no but everytime I open it keeps asking that question, it is real annoying. If I can't done by disabling a file, how do I block this connection in windows firewall? Thank you for your help in advance.

Wondering the reasons ?
I removed it since I don't need it after a reinstall but I believe the preferences did have the option to not check for new versions

Curious. I just now tried to download the latest version and I keep getting redirected to an ad to download their data recovery program.

Edit: Looks like MTPW's another one that has a website designer that is too incompetent ore too lazy to program their website for IE11. I was able to get the download to happen using Firefox. Idiots!
