Did you know that the Adobe AAM Updater is scheduled to run every day at 02:00? AAM Updater plants itself in your Task Scheduler and your Startup to maintain this routine. Yet Adobe probably releases an update only every couple of months. If you try to delete those entries, the next time you start an Adobe Application, AAM Updater puts itself back into your Startup and Task scheduler. This stops it. Save this code as AdobeUpdaterAdminPrefs.dat Code:<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?> <Preferences> <Suppressed>1</Suppressed> </Preferences> Then put this .dat file in the folder that corresponds with your system set up. 64 bit. C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\AAMUpdaterInventory\1.0 32 bit. (x86) C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\AAMUpdaterInventory\1.0 Finally, remove the AAM Updater from your Task Scheduler (search for taskschd.msc) and your Startup (search for msconfig - under the Startup tab).
