Disabling apps updating themselves when PMPC option is greyed out

Notepad++ and Acrobat Reader auto update themselves by default, and I see the option to disable the auto update feature is greyed out for those products in the PMPC console.  I'm assuming there's some issue that prevents PMPC from being able to do disable it.  Does anyone have a script or something they use to disable the auto-update features in those apps?

Hi Joe
  For adobe that would done when you created the custom MST file using their tool to apply to the install or in scheduled task you can turn off their updater  https://www.wintips.org/how-to-disable-automatic-update-in-adobe-reader-dc/, Notepad ++ is a little more difficult  https://community.notepad-plus-plus.org/topic/19241/disable-auto-update-checking-and-update
