Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro

I am stumped on how to disable Adobe Product Improvement Program. Everyone out there says to add this to the registry:

;Disable Adobe Product Improvement Program

But even after verifying the existence of that registry entry, I still get the APIP prompt. I tried to use Adobe Customization Wizard 9 to get rid of it as well but it still persists.
This feature is new to Acrobat 9, so there is not much documentation on this out there.

By the way, it likes to pop up at obscure times after the installation, so it can be hard to tell if you successfully disabled the prompt or not.
You will have to install it, probably reboot, and use it for a while to trigger the prompt.

Are you installing 9.0 or 9.1? Any chance you're installing 9.0 and have automatic updates enabled and it's the update that's overriding the settings since you say it occurs at random times after the install?

It's 9.0. And no, the updater itself was properly removed when I used Customization Wizard.
