Adobe Updater

18 Feb08

Today, the Adobe Updater started whining about another update. It does this so often that it’s a real annoyance since the core component it keeps updating are stuff I never use or care about such as Bridge and Version Cue. Today, the darn updater has interrupted my work flow more than 5 times over the course of two hours. I sit there working happily and that annoying updater keeps juming in the dock…

Anyone have some good advice on how to control this better? I do want updates to the applications I use, but I really don’t want to be bothered when it comes to all that other crap…

Updated: JD got me some good advice. Comments are now working.

    Yeah I had the same experience. First downloading 750MB of updates which is amazing, although then again it was a fresh install.

    Then a whole hour for installing the updates… and since having a browser open just makes it complain pretty much renders the machine useless.

    I didn’t time it, but I think the installation of CS3 went faster than that of the updates too.
