I have Acrobat ver 7 on my pc (Vista 32 bit). I keep getting messages regarding updating.
I see a number of Acrobat versions, eg X, 9.4, and 8.2, but they all seem so big.
I just want a good reader that does the job.
Can anyone offer any advice?
Ps. I use IE ver 8
PPs. what does 'X' mean regarding the reader?
I have read of several applications, many of them free, that can read PDF files, but I have also read that at least some of the most popular ones install additional software that's nearly impossible to remove (and I understand that so does Reader as well if you are nor careful when installing). As I use Acrobat and therefore do not need a separate application for reading PDFs, I have no direct experience on this.
The newer versions of Reader are by no means gigantic applications unless you have severe hard disk space limitations, in which case I would stronlgy advise you to get a larger HD or clear as much as you can your existing one.
As far as I know, the "X" stands for 10.
Hope this helps.
Reader 7 is old and no longer supported, and therefore vulnerable.
I use Reader 8.2 on my old Windows 2000 machine; it is supported for the time being, and not that awfully large.
