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:

  1. Click Start → Run (or press Win+R)

  2. Enter \Windows\system32\Drivers\etc

  3. In the opened folder, there is a file named "hosts"

  4. Copy the file "hosts" to your desktop

  5. Open it with Notepad

  6. After the last line of the file, paste the following:

    127.0.0.1 updates.connectify.me
    
  7. Save the file.

  8. Drag the file back to the folder you copied it from (drag it holding the right button) and REPLACE the original file. You will need Administrator rights to do this.

  9. After this, you will no longer see the update window.

Thank you Sir for the detailed answer, may I also ask how does one acquire the domain address to be blocked? –  kyooryu Nov 19 '12 at 12:44

The above answer is good, but I would also add the following to the host file:

127.0.0.1 downloads2.connectify.me
127.0.0.1 www.connectify.me
