    I just took a look at mine. Package is Adobe Reader DC 19.010.20098.

    Step 5: REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Adobe\Adobe ARM\1.0\ARM" /v iCheckReader /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\DC\FeatureLockDown" /v bUpdater /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\DC\FeatureLockDown" /v bAcroSuppressUpsell /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\DC\FeatureLockDown\cServices" /v bUpdater /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

    Are you sure you aren't looking at step 4 which is for 32-bit?

    my step 4 :

    REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Adobe\Adobe ARM\1.0\ARM" /v iCheckReader /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

    REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\DC\FeatureLockDown" /v bUpdater /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

    REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\DC\FeatureLockDown" /v bAcroSuppressUpsell /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f

    REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\DC\FeatureLockDown\cServices" /v bUpdater /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

    my step 5 :

    REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Adobe\Adobe ARM\1.0\ARM" /v iCheckReader /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

    REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\DC\FeatureLockDown" /v bUpdater /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

    REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\DC\FeatureLockDown" /v bAcroSuppressUpsell /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f

    REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\DC\FeatureLockDown\cServices" /v bUpdater /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

    only the first reg key is in WOW6432node , same as you

    I'm no expert but I know that there is no 64 bit version of Adobe Acrobat, it's just 64-bit "compliant" so perhaps these keys are right where they are supposed to be?

    well according to this document : https://www.adobe.com/devnet-docs/acrobatetk/tools/PrefRef/Windows/FeatureLockdown.html

    on 64 bit system the keys should all be under : "HKLM\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node"

    according to this document : https://www.adobe.com/devnet-docs/acrobatetk/tools/PrefRef/Windows/FeatureLockdown.html

    it should be in the "HKLM\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node"

    I will test this out

    Even if Acrobat Reader is 32 bit, it does use wow6432node keys on 64bit systems.

    After some digging step 5 should add the entry in both 32 bit and 64 bit keys. This is what the step 5 should look like :

    REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Adobe\Adobe ARM\1.0\ARM" /v iCheckReader /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

    REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\DC\FeatureLockDown" /v bUpdater /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

    REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\DC\FeatureLockDown" /v bAcroSuppressUpsell /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f

    REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\DC\FeatureLockDown\cServices" /v bUpdater /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

    REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Policies\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\DC\FeatureLockDown" /v bUpdater /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

    REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Policies\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\DC\FeatureLockDown" /v bAcroSuppressUpsell /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f

    REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Policies\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\DC\FeatureLockDown\cServices" /v bUpdater /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

    I created a Group Policy so it will stay disabled in the event PDQ does not do it correctly

    group policy

    Sorry for my english

    thank you
