    I honestly think the only way is to manually decline the update. I'm nowhere near my Wii right now but if memory serves me correctly there is no way to stop Tantric's Nintendo emulators from auto updating. I don't think there is an auto-update on/off in any of the options. But you also have to weigh which is more important to you...Having an up to date program with all the latest features or using an ancient version just to launch from covers rather than titles. I chose to keep my emulator up to date when I tried the cover versions of FCE Ultra GX and Snes9x GX. I mean the emulator versions that the cover version are based on are over a year old and several improvements and fixes have been made since then.

    There's no way to stop the updates in Tantric's emulators, and you'll have to do it manually. Like Darkcide said, either update and lose the game covers feature, or keep the game cover feature and deal with the update message. But, the emulators have improved really well in the last year. Some game compatibility is fixed, it now uses IOS58 which works better than 202, and the games load much faster from a harddrive. There are also various improvements in controls and sound.

    It wouldn't necessarily cause problems using the old versions of the emulators but they might be missing fixes and features compared to keeping them up to date. For example using Snes9x GX. The cover version is based on 4.1.5 while the current emulator version in 4.2.5. Below are the changes the cover version doesn't support.

    [SPOILER="Added and fixed since 4.1.5"]4.2.5 - October 7, 2010

    * Other minor changes

    4.2.4 - August 14, 2010

    * Improved audio timing
    * Fixed 16:9 correction in Original mode
    * Ability to use both USB ports (requires updated IOS 202 - WARNING: older versions of IOS 202 are NO LONGER supported)
    * Fixed issue with IPS patch files
    * Hide non-ROM files
    * Other minor improvements

    4.2.0 - June 20, 2010

    * Fixed incorrect aspect ratio issue
    * Fixed choppy framerate issue
    * Fixed IPS/UPS patching
    * USB improvements
    * GameCube improvements - audio, SD Gecko, show thumbnails for saves
    * Other minor changes

    4.1.9 - May 19, 2010

    * DVD support fixed
    * Fixed some cheats issues
    * Fixed some potential hangs when returning to menu
    * Video/audio code changes
    * Fixed scrolling text bug
    * Other minor changes

    4.1.8 - April 9, 2010

    * Fix auto-save bug

    4.1.7 - April 9, 2010

    * Freezing issue fixed
    * Core timing fixes, should solve some problems with some games
    * Most 3rd party controllers should work now (you're welcome!)
    * 7z crash fixed
    * GameCube only - DVD/SD Gecko fixed (thanks emukidid!)
    * Translation updates (German and Dutch)
    * Other minor changes

    4.1.6 - March 30, 2010

    * New core! Updated to Snes9x 1.52. Old save states will not work!
    * DVD / USB 2.0 support via IOS 202. DVDx support has been dropped. It is highly recommended to install IOS 202 via the included installer
    * Multi-language support (only French translation is fully complete)
    * Thank you to everyone who submitted translations
    * SMB improvements/bug fixes
    * Minor video & input performance optimizations
    * Now uses .srm files without "Auto" appended, if found
    * Added option to disable crosshair [/SPOILER]

    So it's a matter of personal choice.

    If you know the internet address, you can block updates with your router.

    I block the HBC updates with this, hbc.hackmii.com
