GROUP POLICY - STOP AUTO UPDATES FOR ADOBE READER

Hi Guys,

I want to disable auto update / auto check for update for adobe reader within my business. I did some research and found this: https://www.petri.com/disable-adobe-reader-xi-updates-group-policy

I have set what is being asked in this article but just doesnt seem to work. Am I going mad?
I've got other policies that are setup nearly the same way (change registry) and it works so not sure why this one doesnt.

I created a test OU, put my computer object in this OU but still nothing. Its been a day now since I made these changes so has nothing to do with waiting.

If I delete the "bUpdater" key manually, restart then log back on, it will re-create it but with a "1" which means auto update is enabled. It doesnt want to change it to a "0".

Any suggestions?

Cheers
