I've just packaged/installed Adobe Acrobat Reader 7. When logged on as admin the yahoo internet toolbar is not there but for some reason when logged on as a locked down user its there even though the reg key to disable it is correct

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\7.0\AVGeneral\cToolbars\cWebSearchView\cPositions\cInternal]

"bHidden"=dword:00000001

Can anyone help please

I've just done this as well and it appears that there are a number of settings stored in the files under:

%USERPROFILE%\Application Data\Adobe\Acrobat\7.0\

I've created a small Active Setup script to copy these in for each user and this appears to fix the problem. Might not be the neatest way but I was in a hurry...

I don't know if it really matters, or if it was/is just dumb luck, but when I downloaded the original "Full" installer, I unchecked the option for the Yahoo! toolbar. When I followed the instructions on this site to capture the MSI and cab files during the initial setup, and edited the MSI in Wise, it installs on admins and regular users without the toolbar. I deployed the MSI using a GPO in an AD test lab.

Hello. I'm new to this board. Could you point me to link that you are referring to?

Thanks.

We have entered the reg key for no ads, but they are still showing up. We can have the users change this by navigating to Edit, Preferences, and uncheck "show messages and automatically update", but would like to roll this out with these already set. Any ideas?

Some of the users reported errors and problems using the supplied mst file from this site. I would be cautious in using an "off the shelf" mst.

Perhaps downloading it and seeing what they have changed and then creating your own is a better way to go.

I think I have the MSI and MST, files working now, But I have already pushed out Acrobat 6.0 to all my clients with GPO.
So when I install 7.0 it does not remove 6.0 and I think it leave 6.0 ad the deafult reader.
So Should I make the 7.0 GPO an upgrade to the 6.0 GPO, or just Uninstall the 6.0 with the GPO and make a NEW 7.0 GPO.

Anyone following me?

I would definitely go for the Uninstall 6->Install 7 scenario. I've added a System search to look in the registry for Reader 6 (and 5.05. or 5.1) in the uninstall section. If found I grabb the Uninstall value and add a custom action to uninstall versions found prior to install version 7. I do it this way only because I have no way of knowing if the user has installed any older versions.

I have found that if you can create registry keys for current user you can also modify them and create them for .default. This will affect any new profile on the system. Unfortunately, pushing this key into profiles that already exist is more of a problem because of the GUID associated with each user rather than something that you could use a variable for. So, for the key that you listed here:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\7.0\AVGeneral\cToolbars\cWebSearchView\cPositions\cInternal]

"bHidden"=dword:00000001

becomes:

[HKEY_USERS\.default\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\7.0\AVGeneral\cToolbars\cWebSearchView\cPositions\cInternal]

"bHidden"=dword:00000001
