PHPStorm - Stuck Searching For Plugin Updates

I have a problem with my Internet provider right now, and so I can't connect to certain websites. One of these is http://plugins.jetbrains.com/ (others are like stackoverflow.com.) So, PHPStorm tries to check for non-bundled plugins (updates I assume), but gets stuck on this because inability to connect.

I try stopping the process, but the the process never fully stops:

This is driving me crazy. Is there a way to disable this until I can get my Internet provider to fix the network issue?

Hi,

I do not know any setting in IDE that would definitely allow you to do that (except, maybe, trying disabling checking for updates for IDE itself at "Settings | Updates").

My only other idea is to temporarily edit your hosts file and point such domain to 127.0.0.1.

Great minds think alike. I just thought of that as I walked away from my desk. :)

Settings | Updates it's only about IDE updates, so not really relevant, I think.
You can temporarily disable not-bundled plugins maybe?

The hosts file trick worked.
