Thanks. I have over posted I think regarding this issue. So to summarize, If I just want the adobe reader 9, but when I download I get
Adobe Reader 9
Adobe9 Installer (If I download using the DLM Active X)
getPlus for ADOBE (If I download using the DLM Active X)
But I can delete all those except Adobe Reader 9 and still have the secure adobe reader 9. None of those other things involve security functioning for Adobe Reader 9?
>None of those other things involve security functioning for Adobe Reader 9?
Correct. They are all separate products/services.
Assuming that you want the English version for Windows, you can download the Air-less version from http://download.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/win/9.x/9.0/enu/AdbeRdr90_en_US_Std.exe
Thanks all. What about Adobe_Updater.exe? When I google this I get all sorts of entries saying to disable/delete this. Why is it so bad? and can I just delete it?
I also downloaded the reader 9 this way:
went to adobe.com
Clicked on downlaod reader 9
got a blocked request for installing the adobe active x.
Did not allow the active x
instead went ahead and clicked on the link that said if you don't get redirected, click here
But not reader 9 installer or getplus for adobe
I then deleted acrobat.com and adobe air
Should I delete the Adobe_Updater.exe?
Don't delete things out of your installation; it may get you into trouble when trying to update/upgrade/uninstall it.
However! I do not have anything named "Adobe_Updater.exe" on my computer (nor does it fit Adobe naming conventions). Googling reveals that this is some sort of malware; where do you have that file?
Run anti-virus and anti-malware scans on your computer until you have cleared all infections!
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe
It is digitally signed by adobe. i have it on two computers that I downloaded adobe reader9 on. the two computers are not related on the same network or use the same lines. I downloaded the adobe reader 9 from the adobe site
I scanned it and it came up clean

Ah, indeed, I have that file as well! Seems to be legitimate. I don't know why Google finds so many instances of identifying it as malware.
No, Adobe Air and Adobe Reader function independently, I think Air
is used for Flash applications, so if you are not running a flash from inside Reader, you should not need Ai
r. Hope, it makes sense.
