I was really impressed to see most of my requirements readily available on the "Package database" for the application Adobe Acrobat Professional 8.
I was able to disable various options like Registration,Adobe Online services, check for updates, Digital editions n few others.. But i just saw that one more requirement of mine is missing in it. I wanna disable the help menu option :
Help --> Online Support --> [Knowledge base; Adobe Support Programs; Accessibilty Resource centre; Generate System report].
Can someone help me in this..

Create a file called Hidemenu.js and drop this into it:


//Others you could add, however remove // before app.hideMenuItem
//Hides View > Menu Bar
//Hides View > Toolbars > Beyond Adobe Reader

//Hides “Document" on main toolbar

//Hides “Tools" on main toolbar

//Hides Tools > Object Data

//Hides Tools > Customize Toolbars

//Hides Help > Beyond Adobe Reader

//Hides Help > How to

//Help > Online Support
//Hides Help > Repair Adobe Reader Installation

//Hides Help > Purchase Adobe Acrobat

//Hides View > Read Out Loud (Great for Citrix)
//Hides Edit > Preferences

Just have your install store the Hidemenu.js in C:\installdir\Adobe\Reader 8.0\Reader\Javascripts and when users launch adobe it will hide the requested menus.

Thanks in Advance
