Windows 7 Ultimate x64, Ubuntu 10.04 Alpha x64, Mac OS X Snow Leopard

I'd installed 9.0 by extracting the setup files from the installation package using Extracting the Adobe Reader 9 MSI installer for enterprise deployment

9.1 installed straight over the top without a manual extraction required.

Must have been tested with a Windows 7 build

Win 7 Ult SP1/Win 10 Pro (all x64)

Interestingly I had v9.0 installed and clicked on Updates. It only offered a language pack. I then uninstalled and reinstalled 9.1 from the website.

It's about time Adobe addressed this vulnerability. At first they said they were going to wait until April or May to provide a fix. But there was a lot of publicity about it. Thanks for the news!

Windows Vista SP2

Did anyone else have a problem with the UAC (on Vista) when they first installed Adobe? Every time I opened a web page, the UAC popped up, asking for confirmation to run the "getPlus" Adobe program. I closed my browser (FF) and reopened and everything seems to be normal again, but I felt like I should put this out there.
