Every time I get an update to Flash and install it, at the end of the install I get the three update choices of ‘Allow Adobe to install updates (recommended)’, ‘Notify me to install updates’ and ‘Never check for updates (not recommended)’. Every time I choose the second option and every single subsequent time there is an update I have to go through the same procedure again because the first option becomes selected. I do NOT want Adobe to perform automatic updates. Is there a way to set it to notify me of updates but never bug me to change my update method? I have tried changing the setting through the Control Panel but this doesn’t make any difference either. I just want to be notified of updates but not be pestered with those same three options EVERY time.
I believe that dialog will show up after each install, but you can override this my modifying the mms.cfg file in your C:\windows\syswow64\macromed\flash folder (or if you are on a 32 bit system, c:\windows\system32\macromed\flash).
Just add the following to this text file:
