Adobe updater could be really annoying, though I find Adobe Creative Suite 3 as a masterpiece. Every time that you start Photoshop, Illustrator or Acrobat Adobe updater pops up and tries to download updates. It is also a big resource hog. So how can you disable Adobe updater?
The solution is very simple. Find through search in disc C file “AdobeUpdaterPrefs.dat” (c:\Documents and Settings\UserName\Local Settings\Application Data\Adobe\Updater5),
click with right mouse button and change Attributes of this file to "Read only". UPD: Open this file with any text editor (Notepad) and change year value in this line to 2008 or 2009 <LastDateCheck>2008-10-29</LastDateCheck> or just delete this file, though its very radical cure to my mind.
