In a windows 7 and server 2008 R@ enviroment how can you stop program updates like adobe reader and java from bothering users to update?

As a admin I want to know when there is a update and decide if it needs to be applied or not but I don't want it popping up on users cause that creates help desk calls.

What is a best practice to solve this?

you will need to create a GPO to specifically disable these features.

to disable some applications may require an update to the registry though.

a quick google found this for java - http://sgwindowsgroup.org/blogs/panda/archive/2010/05/14/disable-java-auto-update-through-gpo.aspx
