Just because I use Java, Flash and the Acrobat Reader doesn't mean I want to be nagged about new updates every time I just want to do something actually productive... There are no registry keys like Software\Windows\Current Version\Run or the good old Autostart group in the start menu, so where is this actually stored and how can I stop it for good?

Your path to the run registry entry is wrong should be for 32-bit HKCU or HKLM Software\microsoft\windows\currentVersion\run or for 64 bit Software\wow6432node\microsoft\windows\currentVersion\run. But to ignore the confusion use autoruns. :) –  Phillip R. Sep 7 '12 at 19:15
    
@PhillipR. I realized that when I ran autoruns :-/ So it's definitely better to just use that tool instead of trying to memorized all these possibilites... –  Tobias Kienzler Sep 7 '12 at 19:16
