Hello experts,

I want to stop all the updates since I am doing something and I observed that it hangs up or freeze every time the update is going on so I would love to disable it for a while and just enable it after doing some important works. Can you give me the best solution for this problem?

How to disable adobe x updater?


Hi Curtis Marry,

For you to disable the adobe x updater you will have to stop "C:Program FilesCommon FilesAdobeUpdater5AdobeUpdater.exe" from running. Deletion will not help as adobe will create a new file and folder.

Here's a guide on how it works:

First, you need to start your task manager and stop the "AdobeUpdater.exe" process.

Right click the new file "AdobeUpdater.exe", then hit "Properties", and select "Security".

Mark at "Group or user names" "System", hit "Edit" and click on all "Deny" checkboxes.

Now do this on all users "Administrator" and click ok.

And it is all done. Adobe will never be able to update.

You can try it by testing to start the update on Adobe Acrobat manually.
