Windows 7: How I ditched the security risks and lived without Java, Reader, and F

Different readers will tend to have different options while Adobe has their fixed settings without some options even being available to alter. Nitro Reader 3 is another reader that features a pdf creator while Adobe has their's as a separate program entirely as another item to note. That would be their Acrobat X1 seen out now.

With Nitro like others of course you have both the free and the Pro paid for editions. With that one you go through the File>Preferences>Java Script item to check off the Disable JavaScript box.



With this one you can convert as well as create new pdf files in addition to just being another reader unlike Adobe where each process requires a totally separate download. Outside of Adobe that and Foxit are two of the best programs often seen being recommended in addition to the Sumatra reader.

It's ironic to some extent that as soon as we started discussing how to disable things like java scripting someone blogs about how MS is dealing with it in 8 and IE 10 using the Compatibilty View option instead of the typical whitelist/blacklist methods. Microsoft changes default Flash behavior in Windows 8 and RT
