I have Wireshark 2.0.5 installed on ~80 Windows 10 machines and the Wireshark Automatic Updates are causing the machines to reboot after updating which causes other issues for me. I can manually manage the updates separately at a desired time so really I just want to stop Wireshark from checking for updates and prompting the users to install which triggers a reboot.
I have not been able to find an option to shut of the Wireshark Updates. Is there a simple check box somewhere I'm missing or can I set something in the registry of these machines to suppress updates?

It's in Preferences -> Advanced, then search for gui.update.enabled. This can also be set in the preferences file, the preference uses the same name.
As an aside it seems odd that an update forces an OS reboot, I've never seen that, unless maybe you have some element of the wireshark suite running continuously.
