Re: How to disable automatic updates in acrobat reader

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 :

Quote:
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.
