Or just download the zipped version. Once unzipped just place the exe in the location of choice (can be anywhere on the computer; main drive partition, second drive/partition, etc), run it once and that's it. No installing required and it doesn't come with the toolbars or anything else.

Thank you for the reminder Borg 386. I just removed it from the startup.

Thanx everyone, I'll give Sumatra PDF and Foxit a try.

Glad I reminded you of that Bear....yeah it does suck they way they shove things into your PC without asking.

As long as we're on the topic of Adobe, I hope everyone has the rest of any Adobe products on their computer updated, especially Air & Flash which also had critical updates.

Thanks, stormy; I did not know that. Good information.

Same sort of thing with Flash. I don't want Air or Adobe's downloader plugin in any way shape or form (the free McAfee scan thing can go too, was Norton at one point) so I just go here,

Download Flash Player 10.1.53.64 (IE) - FileHippo.com

and get the latest version a day or two later that is free from all that garbage.

I will remember that. I promptly get rid of the downloader - which is just one more thing I hate about Adobe.

And then once you install Flash if you haven't seen this before,

Lock it down some.
