The last time WinZip issued a new major version (23->24), Total Security updated my installed 23 to 24, and that meant that it fell back to being on a “trial” license (as I hadn’t bought WZ24). OK, fair enough that the updated version was on a trial license, sort of, although I’m not prepared to debate whether that’s a good business practice, but Total Security shouldn’t have installed that update.
So, I want to prevent a repeat visit to this process. There really isn’t anything new that WinZip can add that I’ll find useful - 24 added special support for PDF files, but if I need that, I’ll pay for a full license of Acrobat, thanks, and I intensely dislike having to pay for a new version *just* because TIS decided to install a new one.
So, the question: how do I tell Kaspersky to never install updates for that one thing? Or to just install security updates? Or to not install new *versions*? I cannot guarantee being present and in a position to closely monitor TIS’s notifications to stop it from updating software, but I only want to change the update process for WinZip.
