How to stop adobe reader from updating


28-May-2016 01:39

Hello, I have recently upgraded my company notebook to Windows 10 from Windows 7.I have been using Acrobat Reader XI without problems.Hopefully I'm asking this question in the right place. Due to some issues with alot of our applications that are web-enabled and rely in IE.When are 1500 users get prompted to up date reader or flash player they do not understand to turn off the 'optional' check mark to download and install chrome.Since I upraded, opening PDF files always ends with no response.

Manually editing the Windows registry to remove invalid Error 507 keys is not recommended unless you are PC service professional.

I have also experienced this same problem on different machines.

It is quite annoying, given the fact I do not want to use native Windows reader...

Interestingly enough the option to open from online storage is turned off by default, however the save option, brings up an Adobe dialogue box that gives the option to save to an online (Document Cloud) location.

Using the Adobe Cust Wiz, you can control a lot of the settings, obviously you will have to experiment with the settings, document them get them approved etc., before you actually release your package. If you launch the application and quickly go to preferences, the Usage Information option at the bottom will not be visible.

If you are an admin user, an HKLM key will be populated that is read by each new user.
