In this post I’m not going to explain how to create a Compliance Item and Baseline for that you can review the previous post; Configuration Manager 2012 Compliance Baseline to Disable Adobe Air Automatic Updates.

Below you’ll find scripts for Discovery and Remediation of Adobe Reader automatic updates. The scripts will work for all versions of Adobe Reader that supports the FeatureLockDown registry setting and you don’t have to specify the version.

<#
  This script will check if automatic updates is disabled and return a Compliant/Non-Compliant string.

$Status = Get-ChildItem 'HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Policies\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\' | ForEach-Object {(Get-ItemProperty "HKLM:$_\FeatureLockDown").bUpdater} | Sort-Object -Descending | Select-Object -First 1

if($Status -eq 0)
    {Write-Host 'Compliant'}
    else
    {Write-Host 'Non-Compliant'}
<#
  This script will disable automatic updates if it is enabled.
