Edit -> Preferences -> Updater
Select "Do not download or install updates automatically"

Just create a GPO to block Adobe_Updater.exe and AdobeARm.exe.

Hello Parth48,
The best way to get rid of the automatic download and nag screen is to switch off automatic updates within Adobe Reader.
1) Open Adobe Reader
2) Go to "Edit" menu button on the program tool bar at top.
3) Choose "Preferences"
4) In the left pane choose "Updater".
5) Select the "Do not download or install updates automatically" radio button

You can check still check for updates manually at your own convenience by using the "Help" menu item on the toolbar any time you wish.  Hope this helps.

Can this be triggered via GPO?

I found that the Updater still runs under some conditions even if it is disabled through the Adobe control panel, when the Sygate Firewall caught it trying to sneak out to phone home.

My approach was direct.  Rather than setting global policy options that might be defeated after some future Adobe update, I went to the top level of the program's directory, deleted the updater executable, then to the Reader subdirectory, to the Plugins subdirectory, and deleted the updater plugins.  Severe, but effective.

It does whine about the updater being unavailable and the plugin configuration being incorrect when it runs into something it doesn't understand.

I had similar issue  some time ago. I disabled adobe update from msconfig, but still cotinued doing connections.

Finally, with the kaspersky registry monitor I blocked it.

I use the following registry change (this is for Reader X):

reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Adobe\Adobe ARM\1.0\ARM" /v iCheck /d 0 /t REG_DWORD /f

short, sweet, and scriptable.

For Reader 9.0:
REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\9.0\FeatureLockdown" /v bUpdater /d 0 /t REG_DWORD /f

Why don't you just go to add/remove programs and uninstall it - It's that simple
