now I'm constantly being asked by my Zone Alarm if I want to allow it to access the internet.
"It" being what - Adobe Reader (AcroRd32.exe, AcroRd32.dll), or the Adobe Updater (AdobeUpdater.exe, AcrobatUpdater.exe, ReaderUpdater.exe), or Adobe ARM (AdobeARM.exe) ?
Ya know, I didn't scrutinize the message - I was just peeved at being asked over and over and clicking 'no' as fast as I could because I was trying to keep my attention on the work I was doing - not the words in the warning box. However - I believe several times I saw the word 'Updater' and several times it was 'Adobe something' without 'Updater'. Because I did not yet think it mattered if it was 'Adobe' or 'Acrobat' that came first, I can't say for sure if it was one or both. From the big words I read on the 'downloads' page, I thought I was downloading Adobe Acrobat Reader 9.3. I did not request an 'updater' program to be installed. I did not request an 'AOM.exe' to run all the time. I simply want an Acrobat Reader program to display PDF files. The only online activity I expect is that which occurs when I use a URL address for the file to be opened - period. Perhaps there's a program written by a corporate entity less user-info-garnering-happy than Adobe that will work?
Anyway - it's a moot point for me now. I restored my system to a point prior to that install - it's gone - and not coming back unless I get some answers I like.
