Comment (by Ilya_SpongeBob):

 When I don't start browser after instalation and create file "I:\Tor
 Browser\Browser\TorBrowser\Data\Browser\profile.default\prefs.js" manually
 and writedown line

 user_pref("app.update.auto", false);

 it's look like updates are no more downloaded, but annoying nag appears
 every 5 minutes, that update is available.
