Adobe Reader has the original 10.0.0 with its associated vulnerabilities and the patch of 10.0.1 which seems unable to run in protected mode in my environment or any that have roaming profiles. The vulnerabilities that prompted the last two patches (would have been 10.0.2 and 10.0.3) have been forgone by Adobe, because "Protected Mode mitigates those vulenrabilities". See here: http://www.adobe.com/support/security/bulletins/apsb11-06.html
In my opinion, Reader X is not ready, they are soliciting for testers for a new release. Version 9 with its attendant problems seems to be the only viable solution for me, if I can get the patches to apply properly, and the installer to work properly.
Thanks for your response. From all the forum activity in the Reader section, it would appear that, once again, Adobe releases something with out doing an organized and complete test of their product before release. This reminds me of the Flash Player upgrade that prevented a huge number of folks from playing videos in their browsers.
Overall, I'm very disappointed in Adobe. They are really hurting their reputation.
I'm running WinXP and presently have Adobe Reader 9.4.3.
I suggest you upgrade to Reader 9.4.4 for the latest security updates.
If you still have problems with Flash Player, please post in the Flash Player forum; someone will be able to help you.
My problem with Flash Player problem was resolved with the help of Eidnolb. Based on the history of Adobe pushing out upgrades without really testing them, I was concerned about the new Reader upgrade that Adobe is pushing. I was, and am, trying to find out if other folks upgraded to the version X and did they experience any bad experiences. At present, I am not going to do the upgrade until I feel that Adobe is more responsible in the testing procedures.
