Adobe Reader keeps trying to download

I have an issue with one of my branch offices.  3 of the machines there alternate trying to download Adobe Reader, tying up the T1 connection and straining the connectivity resources.  I have pulled reader off of each machine, re-installed it, and it keeps trying to download.  Is there a file in Adobe that can be removed to keep it from going out and trying to download itself?
Here is the site the computers are trying to access: ardownload.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/win/9.x/9.1.2/misc/AdbeRdrUpd912_all_incr.msp

One thing to interject on the solution, you will need to restart the computer for the settings to take effect, and to stop the update process.
