Windows 7: adobe reader

adobe reader

Recently I had windows software reloaded and am attempting to install some of my programs back on PC.
I installed adobe reader free, version ll.0 (121 mb) but I think maybe I installed the wrong one. When I click on desktop adobe icon, a box appears and there is mention of creating a PDF file which I thought the free one did not allow. Clicking on help/about Xl is all about copywright and a little box with 'credits' to click.

Isn't 121 mb an excessive size? Before the windows software re-install, the version I had on was 9.5.1.283 - Apr. 12/2012.
How can I cleanly & completely uninstall it? If it is the wrong version, could you please direct me to the one I should be installing?

I am not a computer whiz and would appreciate your help. Thanks in advance.

Version 11 appears to be real.

It appears to have more features than older versions, but I haven't figured them out yet.

Delete Adobe (it's a pig actually) and go with Nitro PDF- smaller,faster,and better.

Adobe reader 11 (XI) is only 36.9 MB in size for the download. The installed size may be larger however. My adobe 10 (X) takes about 110MB in the Program Files (x86) folder.

I used Foxit for years, but since Adobe reader 10 (X) can out, I like Adobe much better.
You can get the full install file here.

Oooops! Mistake (above) corrected

My brain cells that remember names have been broken for years. As a result I mistakenly used the name Foxit in my post above when I should have posted Nitro PDF.

It allows editing PDF's, adding signature JPG images, and other nice things. And on my Windows 7-64 system it takes only 80.3 MB.

Just a note, I still have Adobe Reader X (10) installed and I haven't yet updated to 11 so I can't comment on it's
function. I may see how it is sometime this week.

bbinnard,

I viewed this thread with great interest this AM... downloaded the "nitro 3 PDF" and found it's a great/neat/fast PDF reader as you noted.

Thanks!
