Adobe Updater problem solved

AdobeUpdater.exe started to show an annoying empty dialog box each time I restarted the computer. It said the installation was not ready and I could continue it later. I found no way to clearing it or accessing the settings or stopping it from showing up again and again.

I tried installing the latest Adobe Updater 5.1.1 update to no avail.

Eventually I solved it by deleting the Updater5 folder (I have Windows Vista):

%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Adobe\Updater5

  1. that worked for me. I am running windows xp.
    first I had to kill the adobeupdater.exe app in task manager.
    then go to the C:\documents and settings\%acccount name%\local Settings\Application Data\Adobe

    then delete the updater folders.

    yeah!
