Re: Updates 12/11/18 - Microsoft+Adobe+Firefox Tuesday

Thanks Ron.

After a bit of rummaging around I found AdobeARMservice ("Adobe Acrobat Updater keeps your Adobe software up to date") in services.msc was running and on automatic startup status. A right click on the entry>properties>Stop, then >Startup type: changing automatic to manual seems to stop Adobe from taking automatic liberties. The internal manual check for updates in Adobe still works.
