How to disable auto-update notification in Flash Player

TechNote: Macromedia periodically updates Flash Player with new features or security fixes and notifies users who have Flash Player installed when an update is available. This TechNote describes how to disable notification of updates.

IT Administration: Configuring Flash Player auto-update notification

TechNote (updated): Macromedia Flash Player supports notification of software updates by periodically checking for new versions of the player on the macromedia website. Flash Player never runs in the background to perform the auto-update check. The check is only performed when the player is loaded to view Flash content, typically in the browser, and by default only occurs if it has been at least 30 days since the last time it checked for updates. IT administrators can customize the update notification behavior for their users. The auto-update notification settings can be configured in two ways: user settings or an administrator deployed configuration file.
