Disabling Adobe Updater The Easy Way

 

If you already have Adobe Reader installed and are looking for a simple way to disable the Updater from running automatically, run the following command from a Command Prompt. This will require admin access to the machine you are running this on, so if you are running Windows Vista you must use an elevated command prompt.

Go to Start > Run, and type: cmd

 

Press: Enter or OK

 

At the blinking prompt, copy/paste the entire text inside the code box, and press Enter:

 

REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\8.0\FeatureLockdown" /v bUpdater /d 0 /t REG_DWORD /f

In the command box, right click in the window (where it says c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe or anything like that) go to Edit and Paste, so, hit Enter .
