BACKGROUND: I have a MacPro running OSX 10.6.8. I now have Acrobat Pro 9.5.1. When I tried to update from Acrobat Pro 9.5.0, I received an error message that said my application could not be updated because it had been "altered" or some word to that effect. It told me to reinstall Acrobat Pro. I dutifully inserted Installation Disk One and began the chore. It paused and instructed me to turn off several security items because the installation couldn't go forward until I did. I did as I was instructed and the installation was successful including the updating of all 18 Acrobat Pro 9 updates (doesn't Adobe use Combo updates to relieve the consumer of such an arduous task?) But I digress...
The problem is that, since I did that installation and updating, I tried to remember the security items I was instructed to turn off and I turned all that I could remember back on. It appears that I missed one or more because, when I now run MacScan, I get as high as twelve tracking cookies detected that need removal where I was getting virtually zero before. I run MacScan daily and sometimes more often. Since the Acrobat update, I haven't ventured to unfamiliar web sites. I've gone to my regular sites, but I must have forgotten to close a hole somewhere. The QUESTION: Can someone list all the security measures that Acrobat needs to have turned off before installing and updating it? I'm stumped and I hate getting tracking cookies that I had previously prevented.
You were instruted to turn off you virus software. There's no way Adobe can know what software you have or what you did. Turn it back on.
As an alternative, cookies can be stopped via the browser and/or browser plugins. Google that.
10.x products have cumulative updates and there are far fewer of them.
