I would like to turn off the adobe program updater --or whatever it's called.
It seems that every week, there are new updates for me to download and install.  I don't want them.

Go to Help > Check for Updates > Preferences
Then uncheck "Automatically Check for Adobe Updates"

What version of Acrobat do you have?

The above only works for newer versions, if yu have version 7 you need to run the update checker from the Help menu, run the updater and then use the 'Preferences' button from the resulting dialog box. In there you find the option to disable auto updates.

If you have 8 or 9 the above advice from rick is correct.

That link shows both the Reader and the acrobat pro as well.

I might be wrong but that is how I read it.

It is foolish to not update this program.  Most of these updates fix vulnerabilities in the software that leave you at significant risk.

You could consider one of the other PDF editor products out there such as the Foxit Phantom.  They are much cheaper than Acrobat too and don't have the high quantity of updates!

Can't resist a comment here.
 BrotherT is right. It seems that Adobe is sending an update every week. Yes, I realize that they are supposedly fixing security bugs, but goodgollyalmighty they're starting to look like Microsoft.

If you're using Version 9, the menu sequence is:
EDIT/Preferences/Updater/
Do not download or install updates automatically.
