    As suggested, I have manually set NoUpdateChecking to 1 via the Registry, and the WinZip 19.5 'Updates' menu option has disappeared. I'll post again if there are any further unsolicited changes.

    Whilst a general online search gave me lots of links about adxregistrator.exe, I could not find any reference to it in the WinZip site.

    Perhaps you can ask them about it
    Submit a request WinZip support

    All the best,

    Key Name: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Nico Mak Computing\WinZip\UpdateCheck
    Class Name: WinZip Application Data
    Value 4
    Name: NoUpdateChecking
    Type: REG_SZ
    Data: 1

    The following seemed to work for me:

    1) The above key value = 1 appears to prevent WinZip being updated (but only possible by the Windows registry editor ?); 2) disabling any WinZip Microsoft Office add-ins via Office is probably helpful; 3) Disable WinExpress for Explorer & Photos & Office via WinZip > Settings > WinZip Options > Integration
