Cannot Prevent Flash Updater From Running

Apr 2, 2012 9:34 AM

The option "Never check for updates (not recommended)" does not do what it claims to do.  Because I centrally manage updates, I do not want client machines checking for updates themselves.  However, despite checking this button, I found that the Flash 11.2 installer creates a "Flash Player Update Service" and a scheduled task named "Adobe Flash Player Updater".  This task is enabled and runs every hour.


I understand that I can kill the scheduled task and/or disable the service, but why should I have to?  What part of "Never check for updates" is unclear??
