When you install applications in the Adobe Creative Suite CS5 or CS6, such as Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator, the installation program also installs the Adobe Application Manager (formerly called Adobe Updater). Adobe Application Manager automatically checks for new updates to Adobe software and notifies you if it finds them. To disable update notifications, run the Adobe Application Manager and change the notification option.
