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.
