As in the title, is there a way to disable either the update checks or that annoying monit I have to close every time I launch Connectify?
The only (but efficient) way I know is to avoid Connectify from contacting the update server:
*After saving the file, you must remove the ".txt" extension from its name, so it will be named only "hosts".
Otherwise, Windows will not use it as the hosts file. If you can't see file extensions, you must set Windows to show file extensions:
a) Open a window in file explorer
b) Press Alt
c) Click Tools > Folder Options
d) Click on the second tab "Show" and scroll down the list
e) Uncheck the option "Hide extensions for known file types" and click OK. See image below for help:
The above answer is good, but I would also add the following to the host file:
