I have Adobe Flash Player 11 ActiveX and Plugin installed, as well as Shockwaver player 11.5.
I have also had Adobe Air on the machine.
I want to know if one of these programs is installing Adobe Reader X without telling me?
I uninstall Reader X, leave my computer running for the weekend, return and it's reinstalled Reader X, all 116mb of it.
This has happened a number of times and it's driving me mad.
Please explain how this happens and what I need to do to stop it reoccurring?
This is NOT being done by any 3rd party or IT support. It can only be coming from Adobe.
Very strange. I would try removing all traces of Reader with this Adobe tool:
So after you uninstall it (from Control Panel, or Claudio's link above), C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Reader 10.0\Reader is empty or gone. And after two days the folder and all its contents is back?
The only explanation for this is that someone/something is doing a restore. You can believe me, neither Flash Player, nor Shockwave Player, nor Adobe AIR is doing this.
