Disabling Adobe Flash Player updates

Fast on the feels of the Acrobat Reader post I wrote, Flash Player decided to start annoying the users with

Adobe Flash Player Update - An error has occurred while downloading the installer.  Please make sure you are connected to the internet and try again.

Arghhhhhhhh!

Adobe has a “new” method to disable auto updates.

Long story short, create a mms.cfg file with the following contents:
AutoUpdateDisable=1

and drop it into the %windir%\system32\macromed\flash directory

Much longer Adobe update story here.
