Stop acrobat from updating
Because this program consumes valuable system resources, disable it if you don't need it.
To disable the update manager, you must edit the Windows Registry.
The Adobe Update Manager is installed when you install an Adobe application.
The program is launched automatically when you start your computer and runs in the background, checking regularly for updates to your Adobe products.
The registry entry is named b Updater and is a DWORD value. (Note: This DWORD value does not exist by default and either has to be created manually or by some other automated method like Group Policy.) Here’s what it looks like in the Registry if you create the entries manually: You could set this manually, but there’s actually a much easier way to do this in Group Policy.
First off you’ll need a Group Policy Object (GPO) that applies to your computers that need to have the updater disabled.
Disabling the Adobe Acrobat XI update notifications is actually pretty easy.To create a new key, right-click inside the right pane, select "New" and click "Key." Create a DWORD value inside the Updater key, name it "Enterprise" and then assign it a value of "1".To create a new DWORD value, right-click inside the right pane, select "New" and choose "DWORD (32-bit) Value" from the menu.To remove, type these commands in a Terminal window: Basically, the idea is, for each launchd plist file in ~/Library/Launch Agents that you don't want, run launchctl remove on the job name, which is the same as the plist file name without the .plist suffix, then remove the actual .plist file. While you are at it, there may be other launchd jobs in ~/Library/Launch Agents left over from stale applications you might have tried before.
