How to disable Adobe Updater

The Adobe Updater is a major annoyance as of Adobe Reader version 8 or 9, because it just can’t be disabled through the options. Yet, “disabling” should still be easy enough: you can just delete it. Go to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Updater6, find the file named Adobe_Updater.exe and either delete it or rename it (I renamed mine to “Adobe_Updater.exe.fuckit” ^^). This should get you rid of it, at least until you install another Adobe product…
