Disabling updates in Acrobat X Pro

Many management systems now handle updates for Adobe products and as a result it is desired to disable the native update mechanism that they ship with.  One such product is Acrobat X Pro.  In the past, it has been a challenge to make sure that the Adobe updater was disabled in Acrobat X, but as of 10.1.4, they have added functionality to disable it.  Tim Sutton has a full writeup on how to disable updates using this new method and walks through the various methods that were originally used.  Check it out here.
