Remove the UPDATE.XBE. There are other files you can remove to protect yourself from this.
Do a search!
However.. simply having these UPDATe files still on your RETAIL GAMES, BACKUP GAMES on DISK, or BACKUPS on the HD will not screw you up!
Only activating the GO LIVE feature, or activating optional DOWNLOAD options like go online and get more MAPS, TEXTURES, etc. will cause you to ruin a standard install of EVOC on the C drive using older method of EVOX install.
These days.. Ideally.. you may want to consider new BIOS options.. like renamed DASHBOARDS, or F BOOT options. Both can help protect you from grief cause by accidental LIVE updates to dashboards.
