Stuff that needs massaging into a usable format

Adobe Customisation article

The Adobe Customization Wizard 8 provides a method for creating custom transform files for modifying the isntallation of version 8 of the Acrobat products. This tool allows you to disable all of the most useless features included in the new release including Digital Editions, Adobe Online Services and even Adobe Updater 5. This means that you can get rid of the Updater5 folder that keeps appearing in your Documents folder.

The following websites detail the method on how to do this.
