How to disable IDM pop up of registered with fake Serial number?

I have been using Internet Download Manager(IDM) since it helps me to download files from web at high speed.  I would say, this is from one of the best tool to be used to download files from internet.

The IDM pop up of  “IDM registered with fake serial number” is one of the most irritating thing for me since it appears every time when i’m about to download some file. I found one of the solution which worked through fixing IDM has been registered with a fake serial number or the serial number has been blocked error message.

Disabling automatic updates in IDM i found this to be much helpful than anything else. This is one of the solution that has been working for me so far and will not guarantee you that it may work for you as well.

Disable automatic updates of IDM using Windows Registry.

  1. Go to Run –> regedit or directly search for regedit.exe file
  2. Registry Editor window will appear in your screen.
  3. Below Computer Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\DownloadManager
  4. In the right hand pane, select CheckUpdtVM and edit its value to by double clicking on it.
