Where did the update originate? I don't mean ultimate origination
but only the script that ran on your machine. Could it have been set up
by your not-so-friendly IT dept.? A few years back I worked at HP
and IT liked to do things like this. Of course, if the script came from
your local IT, it could contain a lot more than just the update for
adobe. Also, just because the knuckle-dragger you talk to
doesn't know that IT did it, doesn't mean they didn't.
