Adobe auto updater problem

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have been having a problem every so often with the adobe auto updater. I think it starts when an adobe program is opened. All of a sudden my computer will slow down to a crawl and when I go into the task manager all my cpu resources are used up and the auto updater is listed either 2 or 3 times and sucking all my power. End process won't work and the only way to get it to stop is to restart the computer. What gives and how do I get rid of it?

Either try the following registry change
Quote:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\Adobe\\Updater]

"Enterprise"=dword:00000001
Or, rename adobeupdater.dll to .bak. This should stop it launching the updater.

It seems to be a major annoyance of the latest adobe. It seems to be possible to remove the updater from the MSI by editing the transforms,

but it may be another idea to try an alternative piece of software. My preference is Foxit PDF (Its free, smaller, and faster)
