If there a way to turn UAC off for a specific program such as Adobe Acrobat? It's a pain with I have to OK each and every PDF.

Check the Adobe program files folder, there may be .exe files which are being runned as an administrator.
Go to file properties and ucheck that option.

I hope this is a solution.

Actually, after Googling, I just turn that (run as administrator) on. Regardless, off or on, I'm still asked by UAC to OK to read any PDF.

This is a pretty good tutorial on how to turn off notifications, when UAC is running.

Something is wrong if you need Administrative power to read a PDF file.
Something is very very wrong.
