I've been using Foxit Reader for years, but lately every time I try to update it I run into Ask which immediately tries to phone home, a mandatory installation of the Foxit Toolbar on my computer with no viable opt out and Ask which ends up ensconced in Task Scheduler and must be manually removed. I really like using this program, but it just comes with too much baggage is there a slim version of the Foxit Reader without all of these extras?

is there no 'custom install' option where you can untick the boxes?

i always always go for custom install these days, and always check msconfig after installing any software - particularly free stuff.

Yes there are, but after you opt out by unticking the boxes the next screen says that it is going to install them anyway! And that's when I just close the Foxit Reader installer because I do not want that junk on my computer.

Clicking on Decline continues the install, with Accept installing the toolbar. I'm guess you did the same thing I did without catching it and clicked on Accept.

So it isn't that they are force installing it, just changed how to not install it.
But if I click 'decline' then I will not have agreed to the Ask License Agreement plus nothing is mentioned about opting out of Ask becoming my default search engine. I've never seen anything like this before. Why have they made this so disgustingly complicated with this double negative opt out language and buttons? I guess this is how low Ask has had to go to trick people into installing there wares.

Just use the zip version as mitchell64 showed above. Nothing to install at all; no toolbars, not even Foxit itself gets installed. Just place the extracted folder anywhere you want, run the Foxit Reader.exe once, set it as the default PDF program if so desired, then it is good to go.

... but I think that it (probably) still phones home and the first time you run it, updates the Registry

Does anyone know how to get rid of that "Best reader for Everyday use" tag? I've edited the Registry but it just comes back (with v4.0 anyway).

@mitchell64 - which site is that?
