block program to access internet by using Regedit

by panther23 / November 21, 2005 6:32 AM PST


I installed the Adobe, and everytime when I use it, it will ask me if it can update to the latest version. I hated it. Is there a way to block this application to access to its origin web site to check the update from the register<regedit>?

You could try

Adobe's Tools > Options.

Most applications allow a user to automatically update, or block automatic updating.

I didn't need to do that. Instead I pulled up Acrobat and in Edit, Preferences, Update, set it as I wanted.

Try that.

Actually Acrobat will bug you one last time, but check that box to not bug you and it won't.

Cheers and sorry for the omission.
