Deploying Adobe Reader - Group Policy Software Installation

I am trying to manage the deployment and update of Adobe Reader.

I currently deploy with MSI in Group Policy > Software Installation and also enable Automatic Updates (So Users are not bothered) and road warriors always have updated software.

I notice that each time a machine is rebooted while connected to domain, that the deployed version (10.0.0) tries to apply but as version 10.1.1 is installed it would fail.

Not a huge problem, but I want better control. Perhaps I disable automatic updates and deploy when a new version is released?

Note: Small Business so funds are limited.

For a while, Reader updates were so frequent that I used to use WMI filtering of software distribution GPOs so as to deploy Adobe Reader updates only where required, in a controlled way. Automatic updates in the Adobe product were disabled.
