Mar 19, 2008 7:00 PM

How do I stop automatic update of Adobe Reader 8? That is, update only when I say so?

    click on the help menu, then click check for updates, then click preferences, then untick the box that says automatically check for updates

    here's what happened on mine
    I have reader 8.0.0
    I went to
    "help" (on the menu bar)
    at the bottom of the help menu drop down is "Check for updates"
    when I click on "Check for updates" it starts a download
    hit cancel and another dialog pops up asking
    what to do, the last selection on the dialog is
    "cancel and cancel all future updates" or something like that

    To turn off Automatic Update or you chose when to intall them, do these steps:


    Click on Edit, then click on Preference (bottom of drop down menu), and screen will show one of three choice for you to check off. That should fix your issue.
