Hi All,

I am managing a Server 2003 domain environment.
Every time when a new update is coming out for Adobe falsh or Java, all of my users (Terminal Server users) are prompted to install the available update. Non of my users have the rights to install anything on they terminal server profile.
Is there a way to kill this adobe and Java update pop-up without the need to enter each user's terminal profile one-by-one?

Thanks

Hi Jarda,

I have Adobe reader version 9.5.1
As I saw in that article, that is applied only for Reader X.

Can you help me with this version?

Thx

There is similar key in registry:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\9.0\FeatureLockDown]
