None of the toggles or suggested actions will work. I've been down this road many times before and Path Finder fails to provide an authentic fix. They are happy to harass their users with unwanted update reminders instead of providing an authentic fix.
I'm sorry for the inconvenience, we are looking into this.
Could you send us a sample (a snapshot) of Path Finder process of what happens during this issue in a separate file? This will enable us to analyze what happens with the application. Here's how to get it:
Open Path Finder and reproduce the problem. If the problem is dynamic (e.g. unexpected action result), please try reproducing it during the sample collection.
Open Activity Monitor from the /Applications/Utilities folder.
Select Path Finder in the process list. To help making a selection, type "Path Finder" in the Filter field.
Click the Sample Process button in the toolbar - this will open a new window entitled "Sample of Path Finder" and a sample of the process is collected.
Click Save and save the sample file.
Close (Command-W) the Sample window opened in step 2.
Jordan, I don't know who this "Rob" person is that you're trying to
saddle with all your requests, but the situation is quite simple. Path
Finder continually hassles users with prompts to upgrade to PF9, even
though these update reminders have been turned off in Preferences, and by
clicking the appropriate options in the reminder itself. I have already
sent you appropriate documentation on this already.
