An aside: apparently the insistence of Acrobat's plug-ins and so- 
called "repair" function is getting wider exposure:


That said, in my experience, any measure that the user can take won't  
survive an Acrobat update (using Acrobat's update function): whatever  
preference may have been set by the user, whatever unwanted file may  
have been erased by the user, during the update Acrobat will go back  
to its imperialistic behaviour and re-install its browser and office  
plug-ins without asking/telling the user.
