Anyone know of good scripts for disabling java/flash/whatever else update reminders? We don't want users even trying to update these things on their own.

Third party apps are all from different vendors. I do not know of any universal way to turn off updates for applications not covered by Windows Update.

You would have to turn update off on each app. Perhaps do this when you do the next updates.

The best possible solution might be to analyse what registry entries the deactivation of the update function sets. I would try to find out by using regfromapp: http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/reg_file_from_application.html and afterwards distribute these registry settings using GPOs.

For example,
For Flash:  Control Panel|Flash|Advanced tab|click the Change Update Settings button and then fill in the radio button for "Never Check..."
For Java:  Control Panel|Java|Update tab|Uncheck "Check for Updates Automatically".
For Windows:  Control Panel|\Windows Update|Change settings (upper left)|select "Never Check..."from drop down line.

If not covered what other automatic updates or update notices are your users now getting.

There is no universal way to turn off updates. There were decent workarounds from 3 members here.  I suggest a split.   http:#a40435666 ; http:#a40435788 ; and http:#a40436158
