I just became aware of something that is really getting annoying. I’m getting a lot of notifications recently that my installed software applications are in need of updating. Now, I’m all for updates, especially when it comes for my anti-virus, anti-spyware, and other security products.

But I have some software on my personal PC like Adobe, and HP software for my printer and digital camera that seem to want to update weekly. Is it just me or is anyone else seeing this?

I was out on the Internet this morning and BANG ! Up popped a notice from HP. New software updates are available. Then I wanted to download a document in .pdf format and up popped Adobe Acrobat Reader: updates are available. Heh, people, I’m trying to do some work here. Knock off the update stuff. So I went into both software applications and poked around to locate how I could turn off these annoying update notification pop-ups and, believe it or not, I was successful. Yeah!
