    To decontaminate the automatic updates without having a connection Internet Normally, you can decontaminate the automatic updates for Acrobat via tool of update the preferences interface. This tool however will not function without a connection Internet. To circumvent this problem, download this register export: disableupdates.reg. If not, you can copy and stick this text in a .reg file :

    Windows Registry Editor

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\7.0\FeatureLockdown]
    "bUpdater"=dword:00000000

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Adobe\Adobe Acrobat\7.0\FeatureLockdown]
    "bUpdater"=dword:00000000

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\8.0\FeatureLockdown]
    "bUpdater"=dword:00000000

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Adobe\Adobe Acrobat\8.0\FeatureLockdown]
    "bUpdater"=dword:00000000
    Once you create or download create the folder, then double click the file. Reg file and then you click yes on the MS-DOS Editor's registration asking if you want to continue.

    1. Copy the code that is given below into notepad and save it with extension *.reg

    For Acrobat Reader 7.0


    Windows Registry Editor
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\7.0\FeatureLockdown] “bUpdater”=dword:00000000 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Adobe\Adobe Acrobat\7.0\FeatureLockdown] “bUpdater”=dword:00000000
    For Acrobat Reader 8.0


    Windows Registry Editor
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\8.0\FeatureLockdown] “bUpdater”=dword:00000000 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Adobe\Adobe Acrobat\8.0\FeatureLockdown] “bUpdater”=dword:00000000

    After you have created the *.reg, import this into your Windows Registry.
