Product Name: Disable Office 365 Autoupgrade

Description : This will prevent office 365 office from auto-upgrading, per KB 3097292: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3097292 This is useful in environments where office 365 is trying to do autoupgrade but users do not have the rights or access to do so. This is shown in a office alert banner they cannot remove. Applies after next manual reboot. 7/6/2016 - Marc Friesen
