    Turning off AutoUpdate... still updates...

      BACKGROUND

      I am working on the remote administration of about 1000 laptops in the field (i.e. can't get my hands on them).

      The laptops only connect to the internet via phone line - time of data transmissions is a large concern ($) so I want to lock down all access to the internet... so I do not want McAfee to download ANY updates of ANY type (updates will be transmitted by another mechanism).

       

      So, we are automating the install of McAfee Enterprise version 8.7.0i on these laptops... In efforts to off auto updates I set HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\McAfee\DesktopProtection\Tasks\...\bSchedEnabled set to 0 but the updates are still occouring. How do I turn off the automated updates of the DAT, ENGINE and OTHER programmatically?

       

      Thanks,

      C
