Work around an Adobe 8 Reader self-healing annoyance
Authored by: BryanD on Feb 07, '08 06:53:37PM
Even simpler:

Find the "RdrENU80SelfHeal.xml" file in both:

- Adobe Reader.app/Contents/Mac OS/
and
- /Library/Application Support/Adobe/Acrobat/

In both the above files, using a text-file editor (e.g., TextEdit, TextWrangler, etc.) find the entry containing "Adobe Updater.app" and edit it to read:
<key>required</key>
<string>NO</string>

(i.e., change the "required" key's argument from "YES" to "NO")

You can then delete the "Adobe Updater.app" from
/Applications/Utilities.

With Adobe Reader 8.1.2, that "did it" for me (on multiple systems).
