I have installed mysql 5.7, and from time to time (once per several days) it looks for updates (as I understand). Console window opens for several seconds, and then dissappear. It doesn't care, that I'm watching a movie in this time, and this console is on the top of my player. It's really annoying, why MySql is updating in this user unfriendly way? Can I configure it to do it silently?
Best is to hide the console only, and let it do what it's meant to do in the background.
Go to 'Task scheduler' > expand 'Task scheduler library' > 'MySQL' > 'Installer' > 'Manifest Update' > right-click 'Properties' > choose 'Run whether user is logged on or not' > check 'Do not store password...'
That should do it.
Go to Control Panel > System and Security > Administrative Tools and open Task Scheduler.
In the Task Scheduler navigate to Task Scheduler Library > MySQL and select Installer.
From the list at the center of the window right-click ManifestUpdate and select Disable
