It may be a false report, this happens all the time with anti-virus.
So long as people report this sort of thing to the anti-virus maker it
is usually sorted out quickly. Start by updating the Mcafee stuff.
This was seen at least six months ago, so it should be sorted by now.
If that doesn't help, double check that you are on the real Adobe
site, not an imposter trying to deliver bad software (this can
happen). Go to http://www.adobe.com/acrobat/readstep.html to download.
If that still doesn't help either
(a) contact McAfee for help or
(b) temporarily switch it off to get Reader loaded.
Thank you for this information.
I try it again and otherwise it's a job for McAfee.
Why does Symantec Anti Virus tell me that trojan sgc15.exe is downloaded with Adode Reader for Vista and now requests unrestricted access to the WWW. All I desire is the freeware without the trojan. Perhaps your servers need some anti virus scanning. Keep this up and methinks that in several years you'll be searching for anti virus freeware.
1. Is your MacAfee software up to date? This seems to have been
reported as fixed as long ago as last July.
2. Be ABSOLUTELY sure that you downloaded Adobe Reader ONLY from the
official web site, http://www.adobe.com/acrobat/readstep.html. If you
downloaded it from ANYWHERE else it could have been infected. Most
sites offering Adobe Reader do not have any rights to do so, and so we
must be very suspicious of their motives.
Sorry, not Macafee but Symantec, but the reply applies otherwise.
and I got the popup from Norton Protection Center that sgc15.exe is trying to connect to the internet. Reading the above, I've left the popup unanswered for now, and used LiveUpdate to check for updates, resulting in the message that all my Symantec products are currently up to date.

Well... since you do have Adobe's installer (not an evil copy), why
not just let it do what it wants - connect to the internet.
