I have Maverick and the option to Upgrade to OS X El Capitan pops up. I don't want to do this. Ever. How do I disable this notification?

  • What's wrong with El Capitan? I runs amazing well on my ancient 2009 MacBook Pro. Apr 4, 2016 at 3:32
  • I have no personal experience with this, but there may be 32 bit vs 64 bit issues. Apr 4, 2016 at 15:45
