Adobe Reader Stopping Update-2

Recently i disabled the Adobe Acrobat DC Update Service to stop downloading new versions
Before stopping the status of this service was: Automatic
I changed it to: Disabled
After some days i found that Adobe again was trying to update their product
I again checked the status of the service and i found that it was again: Automatic
Can anyone explain how that was possible

Have you checked your anti-virus program? Some anti-virus include a Software Updater feature, that might have altered the service settings.

Today, again the Adobe Update service started, and failed to update the Adobe-DC product
I already had disabled that service, but after a couple of days the status of the service was again: Automaticaly


I wonder: is er a method of Deleting that update-service in steat of disabling?
If i could delete it, than the update-service is removed at all and that problem is gone
But how do i do it?

I did not do it because i could not find this entry in the Windows-registry, when i used: regedit.exe
But i see that this adobe-service is done with the program: amsvc.exe
Is it possible that i delete this program: amsvc.exe to cure the problem
i found this program in: c:\program files (x86)\common files\adobe\arm\1.0\amsvc.exe

I suspect that doing so will cause more problems. Just create the key as specified in the tutorial.
