Set periodic interval to check for Internet Explorer updates.

This setting enables you to control how often Internet Explorer checks for a newer version.

Tweak for : Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows XP, Windows 2003, Windows 2000, Windows Vista
The periodic check for Internet Explorer updates, redirects to a Webpage where Internet Explorer updates are posted on the Microsoft Web site. The next time the browser is started after the interval has expired; it will navigate to the updates Webpage instead of the homepage.

This setting allows you to set the periodic time interval in number of days, on expiry of which the browser automatically navigates to the updates page. The default interval is 30 days.

For this, go to Start > Run, enter “regedit” and navigate to the registry path listed below. You can create a DWORD value “Update_Check_Interval”, if this value does not exist.

Now, right-click and modify the value to set the desired periodic interval as decimal value, say “180”. The Internet Explorer will look for updates after completion of 180 days from the date on which it was configured.

The changes take effect after a restart or logoff.
