Default Can updates be disabled?

The only thing I use iCUE for is monitoring the current battery percentage on my headset so the software updates really aren't doing me any good and I don't want notifications that I need to update it, so as the title says can updating for iCUE be disabled, or can anyone suggest a way to stop getting notifications from Windows 10 that it needs to be updated?

I don't think that the notifications can be disabled but actually installing the update is entirely optional.

The updates are optional, but it's the update notifications I want to get rid of.

So ... this is something of a hack but it should work.
If you had a way to block requests to www3.corsair.com/software/CUE_V3/updates.txt, that would, effectively, prevent you from getting notification of updates.

Thank you. I'll see if I can do that.

you could go to your hosts file
C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts

and add a line at the bottom:
127.0.0.1 www3.corsair.com

you will get this:
