    I have tried EVERYTHING to disable Adobe Updater.

    K-Fig Level 1

      I have a Windows Vista HP laptop. I don't know when Adobe Updater first started being there, what it came with, but it is there, and it does its thing with every startup. First I just went into its own preferences (where after it's done "searching for updates," you can either hit Quit or Preferences) and told it to only do this once a month (the longest amount of time it offers). And that didn't do anything. So then I went into the control panel and into programs, then change startup programs. From there I found Adobe Updater and clicked "remove." I restarted, it was still there. I did the same thing and hit "disable," restarted, it was still there. I went back and did BOTH, restarted, it was still there. I then went to my system configuration and unchecked Adobe Updater, hit apply, hit OK, said yes to the request to restart, and it was STILL THERE. I did these things over and over again for twenty minutes.


      Please help me get rid of it. Thank you in advance.
