Try this on the terminal server: http://www.ehow.com/how_5098323_disable-adobe-updater.html

Updates for MS products come out on the second Tuesday of the month. I recommend - provided you're not using WSUS - allowing it to download updates weekly on Wednesdays. On friday, log in, apply updates and go home.

would be good also to know how the updates could automatically download themselves without disturbing the users. And only send messages when administrators are logged in
