Adobe Reader Zero Day

If you haven't replaced Adobe Reader with something like NitroPDF or SumatraPDF, now might be the time to consider it.......

Slowly but surely weaning my family from both Java and Adobe. Kind of a hard slog for my step-mom and one of my sisters though (both pretty much technophobes).

Adobe air ,Flash player it seems they have been the targets of mass proportions

also yesterday i updated the reader on my other rig upstairs guess i will be taking it off in a bit and replacing it as well with nitro all i can say at this point is don't know who to really trust or dedicate my alligence too seems like the roots that we are used to are getting tilled in a bad way

Is any problems with Adobe Flash Player 11? I'm going to remove Adobe Reader on my laptop in morning, and installing Foxit on the desktop now.

I switched to Nitro years ago, excellent and it's much smaller in size.
