You have to configure each app to not check for updates.

Big pain... Each has to be handled individually, I don't know of any third
party policies defined to get around this.

It gets even worse. The JRE for example is not using a global machine level
setting for this,..so it has to be repeated for each user that uses the
machine and it must be done with that user logged in at the time. So if you
have 5 machines with 5 users on each machine you have to repeat this 25
times. There are many forums/articles on the web of people complaining
about this "stupidity" on the part of Sun and Adobe,...but it seems to be
falling on deaf ears.
