I am new to this so please forgive me for bothering you but which one should I pick? That is a very long list of downloads.
I think that Reader 10 was the last version compatible with Vista, so you should probably get that one.

I am a devotee of Windows Vista. You should be aware that Reader X is no longer supported: End of support for Acrobat X and Reader X . When I was using Reader X on Vista, I found that all patches later than 10.1.4 (released August 2012) caused problems; so I switched to Reader XI, which never officially supported Vista but nevertheless has caused me no problems. My Reader is currently patched to the very latest 11.0.16 version.
I recently learned that Foxit Reader has also ended support for Vista. I you were looking for a PDF reader that currently supports Vista, then you might want to try Sumatra.
I just downloaded and then updated Reader X. I tested it and it seems to be working fine (for now?). I looked at my other choices, such as you suggested, Reader XI and the there is no file there with .exe They are all .msp and I am not sure how I would install it. What kinds of problems should I expect to soon see?
can you further advise?
Thank you for your time.
I assume you updated to the final 10.1.16 version? Personally, I lost all patience with Reader X a few versions earlier than that; but other Reader X users running Vista have reported problems with it - most recently DaleBr on May 22. I don't have time to write a book tonight, but DaleBr's thread should answer your questions: Adobe Reader crashes when it tries to open .pdf files: No Vista option for updates.
I dont like the latest adobe reader, unfortunately it was installed automatically. I hate it when programs install updates automatically. Where do I get the 2015 version which was nicer?
You can install the older version of Adobe Acrobat Reader DC from here Adobe - Adobe Reader : For Windows
However, it is always suggested to use the latest version of the application.
