Adobe Reader is installed on Windows Terminal Server 2008.
Users get messages that updates are available, if they click them they get a message saying can't update.
How to make update messages not show to users.
Or any other tips on managing updates in general for programs installed on a terminal server.

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
