Turn off Adobe Reader Updater

(imported topic written by jpeppers91)

Is there a fixlet that will turn off the updater so it doesn’t pop up on the taskbar? Since we upgraded to 9.3.1 and 9.3.2 came out, the annoying pop-ups have coming up.

The following works:

  • Here is the reg file I created:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

http://HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\9.0\FeatureLockDown


  • Here is the task action I created (used registry wizard and added a kill action):

action uses wow64 redirection false

download http://.<domain.com>:52311/Uploads/ab1ca49fe33229fc772e34ce912594990946db06/adobedisablereg.tmp

continue if {(size of it = 256 AND sha1 of it = “ab1ca49fe33229fc772e34ce912594990946db06”) of file “adobedisablereg.tmp” of folder “__Download”}

extract adobedisablereg.tmp

waithidden regedit /s “{pathname of client folder of current site & “__Download\adobedisable.reg”}”

waithidden taskkill /F /IM adobeARM.exe
