What the heck is going on with all the updates?!?!?!?! I am a network administator for a guy that owns 4 companies. So I have 4 networks from Houston to Dallas to Lareda that I have to manage. I do not understand why in the holy crap there is always a blasted adobe update on ALL my pc's everytime I get on them. The second worse is the java upate. I am running norton on all the pc's so it can't be malware. Does adobe have a centralized update package that I can just push out to the network. It's adobe READER for gods sakes. Why in the hell do we need an upate ever couple of days????????? Microsoft doesn't jack with me this much. I need a good answer on this or I will be forced to find a 3rd party product.
You're exaggerating. Reader 10 has been updated just once since it was released. Reader 9 has been updated roughly quarterly, far less than what I see with Microsoft OSes, but that's understandable. Updates address security and bugs, which is a good thing.
