Default [Q] HTC Backup - intrusive and unwanted

Every time I install something HTC Backup pops up and asked to backup my settings to their cloud. I know this disables Google backup which I have been using for years. Furthermore there does not appear to be a way to disable the damn thing!

Suggestions please...

In settings, I can

1st: Choose if I want to use Google or HTC for Backing Up
2nd: Disable the whole automated backup process.

HTC One (M8) - ViperOne - ElementalX or Faux Kernel - Viper4Android FX - S-Off - FW 2.22.401.4 - SUPERCID - Root
Galaxy SIII - Now for the wife - Resurrection Remix - Boeffla Kernel - Viper4Android FX - Root

If I helped, press thanks...

I have things set this way, and still get HTC backup notifications. Any other ways to get this thing disabled? I have root

Freeze or uninstall with titanium backup. You could always restore it again (as long as you back it up before uninstall.)

I'm with the OP on this. It happens whenever I install an app from the play store. Even though you can select "don't ask me again" after hitting NO it still pops up next time. Shame you have to void your warranty to be able to freeze the dam thing.
