OK... what the heck (PG rating) am I missing on this auto update setting in order to disable it....

Is anyone having the same issues I am with trying to get the auto update disabled?
Here is the process I have implimented so far

First thing I do is remove the HKCU Macromedia Shockwave xx settings..

1-Registry settings have been set to "N" on the AutoUpdate key
2- Reg key "N" on CollectStatistics

the currentupdateversion key shows 1040025 which I really dont understans since this is 11.0.0.429, but then again... the key shows as Shockwave 10 in both LM and CU hives...

3-nextpingdate=0
4-otb=0
the unicontrol key settings...
alywaysregister=n
CollectStatistics=n
DefaultAllowMMMail=n
defaultautoupdate=n
defaultcollectstats=n
DoMandatoryUpdates=n
OfferOptionalUpdates=n
PingEnabled=n
remotecheckforupdatesurl=0
updateshockwaveurl=blank (url removed)

I have removed the Shockwave_updater component and all refrences to the updater.exe

Now.. you would think this would just about break the shockwave app let alone the autoupdates...
however.. we still get the auto update notification when one is available......

What gives????
Any help as always is appricated or if there is a whitepaper like there is with flash would be.

Then of course when you call Adobe, they have no tech support for shockwave!

Are you creating the registy key and its value 'N' at correct location?
