Note that even if you disable auto-update when installing or in the contol panel applet, the new player adds an autostart in services.msc (Manual) & adds a scheduled task...

I took the above screenshot before I selected "Never check..."

After deleting the scheduled task using Autoruns, after reboot it's back.... Posted Image

ETA: After another reboot, it's gone. Now I'm really corn-fused. Posted Image

Great discovery Union_Thug!

If you right click the Autoruns entry, go to "Jump to task", it will take you to the Task Scheduler folder. Right click the Adobe updater task, go to Properties and remove the checkmark from "Enabled" at the foot of the dialog box.

You can also just go to C:\Windows\Tasks and do the same thing.

EDIT: Here's the official take on the update: http://www.adobe.com/support/security/bulletins/apsb12-07.html You need to update AdobeAIR too it seems.

Thanks for the tip, "problem" solved. (not really a problem, just a personal preference)

More info re: Flash Auto Update...

An Update for the Flash Player Updater http://blogs.adobe.com/asset/2012/03/an-update-for-the-flash-player-updater.html

For our initial release, we have set the new background updater to check for updates once an hour until it gets a response from Adobe. If the response says there is no new update, then it will wait 24 hours before checking again. We accomplish this through the Windows Task Scheduler to avoid running a background service on the system. If you are running multiple browsers on your system, the background updater will update every browser. This will solve the problem of end-users having to update Flash Player for Internet Explorer separately from Flash Player for their other open-source browsers. Google Chrome users, who have the integrated Flash Player, will still be updated through the Chrome update system.
