Just a FWIW observation. Unless you absolutely, positively, without a doubt need Adobe Reader, there are several free alternatives that are smaller in size, load faster, and don't contain as much bloatware. A few examples are Sumatra, Cute PDF reader, Nitro PDF reader, PDF-Xchange viewer, Cool PDF reader, and Foxit.

I have tried most of these and find Foxit the best. Adobe is a no no. Secure PDF Reader

Wow...what a difference it is. Thanks for the advise. I never have tried it before. It does much more than Adobe. Has anyone here tried their paid products?

Now if we could just do something about the 2 million websites claiming "to view this PDF file you need to download Adobe Reader" as if it was the only one on the damn planet.

That's like saying "you need Windows to use this computer/home theater PC/smartphone/digital kitchen sink". Only worse.

Adobe Reader 9.3
I've noticed that when I click on a pdf file or view its properties, it displays that it opens with Adobe Reader 9.2. However, I updated from 9.2 to 9.3 a while back. The files open with no problems and 'Programs and Features' shows that 9.3 is installed. Does this occur with anybody else? ...
