Well I can only see the way to patch the registry of each user.

Import that code into the registry of each user and you are done. This could be done by start-up script on a  windows domain.

This is the important key:

"bEnableJS"=dword:00000000

just include this command to the batch file:

REGEDIT  /S codebelow.REG

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\9.0\JSPrefs]
"bConsoleOpen"=dword:00000000
"bEnableGlobalSecurity"=dword:00000001
"bEnableJS"=dword:00000000
"bEnableMenuItems"=dword:00000000

Open in new window

Yes I did in fact test it, before sending the recommendation to you ;-)

... and you have to restart adobe, because it reads it's settings during startup, not in polling mode.
