How to stop photoshop cs4 from updating
Heck, then how the hell they manage to bring this crappy update software to foreground when the computer starts up ? Sorry my post is running long, but another crap thing about Adobe, they do not let you change the flash player setting unless your computer is connected to internet !
I suspect it's using active setup, a windows 'feature' which is now part of the OS.
So for that access "Edit" menu and select option "Preferences"... and select radio button "Do not Download or install updates automatically" Thanks Cheers In my version of Reader, I had to go through the Edit menu and choose Preferences. BTW I wonder why people just go on and on moaning and whining about evil Microsoft (not that I love MS, but...) ??? A new dialog box will open which will allow you to browse to any file you want. It sounds extreme, but if above steps do not work for you and Adobe CS apps like Photoshop CS4 or Flash CS4 demand updates frequently than look for the Adobe ESDGlobal file in the \Program Data\Adobe\Updater6 folder and open it with an XML or text editor. It's faster, more features, no annoyances and works better than the Adobe Reader itself!! I have Reader 8.2 and also use Sys Internal's original Windows Process Explorer. I can close it, but it will re-appear minutes later.
There, choose Updater and click on "Do not automatically donwload or install updates". Look at these Adobe nerve wrecking crappy pop-ups ... My answer is NO - they're all the same out there, just to get your money and screw you and to make you stay with their SW - updating and updating and updating their crap If you delete the file and at some point decide to update adobe will reinstall the file. Browse to any of the files mentioned here, depending on the version you have. You may also want to look in this location for all the updater files and place the path rule on each of them. Check out the Is Enabled = 1 settings in the application XML node you do not want to have on the updater’s list. You may need administrator privilages to save the changes." Add/Remove Programs 2. Acro Rd32Adobe Reader 8.2 It will self close after 10 seconds or so, and come back again and again. There is no entry in the above thread mentioned registry area (i.e. I don't feel safe when I have no control over my box.
It's amazing what you find when you read their policies: "The Software may automatically download and install updates from Adobe from time to time.
These updates are designed to improve, enhance and further develop the Services and may take the form of bug fixes, enhanced functions, new Software modules and completely new versions. This Updater is the most annoying piece of shit I ever saw.
Hi , I am also able to disable the automatic update for adobe reader 7.0 . The url isfile4Anyone figured out how Adobe manages to run their update software using Operating System resources(win) when the computer starts up? They do not seem to understand that the most sensible time to run the updater is when the software or its component (Adobe reader) is opened or invoked.
REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Adobe\Acrobat Reader.0\Feature Lockdown" /v b Updater /d 0 /t REG_DWORD /f Good solution.... was thinking in installing a very old version of the program just to avoid that ..
