Windows 7: Suggestions for a free PDF Reader ?

Suggestions for a free PDF Reader ?

I'm looking for a free PDF Reader.
I've been using Foxit for years and looking for something different.
I'm test driving Nitro Reader and so far it seems pretty good.
Anyone know of any problems with Nitro Reader, or know of a better free Reader I can try?

Thanks,
David

Better than Adobe PDF Reader and Acrobat
I use this and it works well.

Oops, I only read your title first. I couldn't find anything free on the Nitro site, they wanted personal info for a "free" trial.

Yea, but at least it's not any credit card, etc info...
If an email address gets spammed, can always get another free one.

I have been using Nitro PDF Reader for a few years. It installs a printer driver so any file can be "printed" to a PDF format. Also has an add-on for Firefox.

Hi Gary!

I saw your post in another thread about preferring Foxit rather than Nitro:
Nitro Pro version 8 64bit
I don't want to hijack/sidetrack that thread, so I'll post here...

I've been a long time user and recommended Foxit to friends and family I help.
With the latest Foxit release, I'm seeing issues and questioning if I should use or reccomend it.
That's why I'm testing other options such as Nitro.

Issues with Foxit latest version released a few days ago:
1) It installs "Foxit Cloud" and uninstalling that in Programs and Features has problems.
2) The installer now includes a PUP Open Candy dll.
MBAM Pro blocked this dll for me, but others have not been as lucky and had problems ...

If anyone wants more info of my experience let me know!

Hi Dave,
I was aware of Foxit Cloud and so far have had no issues with it and have left it. There is a thread (somewhere) discussing Open Candy. It's not malicious but offers developers' software to the user during installing. Still not something I want, but I did use ADWcleaner to get rid of it. All seems well here. Open Candy may also serve ads for software based on users' browsing or installed programs, I'm not sure though.

I'm using PDF -X Change Editor. I started with the free version and was impressed enough to buy the pro version.
