Windows 7: Disable Adobe Flash Update Utility

Disable Adobe Flash Update Utility

Kill the process FlashUtil10b (Ctrl + Alt + Del)
rename or delete the file located at

C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash
C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash

The file is FlashUtil10b.exe

Everything still works fine after the fact. Do this at your own risk, this does disable their update utility, and adobe products are very prone to security flaws. I don't care myself, I'd rather save the few cpu cycles than watch their crappy update utility run constantly on my machine...
