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

Hi,

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

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.
