Mandrake updates applet


The window in the applet says the following:

Network Connection: Up
Last check: No check
Updates: Service is not activated. Please click on "Online Website"

I've registered twice but it won't work. There is no button named "online Website"

How do I fix this?

Thanks!

You may have registered with Mandrake but are you part of Mandrake Club? I have the same message on my applet window, I registered my machine with them but because I am not a Club member I am not entitled to the updates (I believe, although I used to be able to upgrade for free with MDK10 or 9.2 I can't remember).

Oh, I see.

How do I make that thing go away then?

Thanks.

I believe you can just right click on it and untick the start at boot option, or just select quit. I can't remember now after I got rid of it.
