      Any reason why?

      Reader 10.0.3 works OK (for what I have used)...

          I have something similar.


          On each boot, I get the message, "adoberesourcesynchronizer quit unexpectedly."  Removing it as a Login Item doesn't work for long because of the self-heal feature. 


          How do I make this STOP?

            Hello: I just found this in the forum…

            Good luck…

            Put “ “ around the name “Adobe Reader.app”  as UNIX does not allow spacese in names..

            Re: How to disable AdobeResourceSucker?

            AdobeResourceSucker came back even though it is clearly disabled in my Login Items. Probably Adobe Reader is launching it, since that is the only other Adobe thing I have installed.


            Here is how to make sure it will never come back.


            In a Terminal window, cd to the correct the correct directory.


            $ pwd

            /Applications/"Adobe Reader.app"/Contents/Support


            Delete the sucker forever


            $ sudo rm -rf AdobeResourceSynchronizer.app



            You will be asked for your admin password. If you have never used sudo to do something, this is not a good command to try as your first one, since getting it wrong could cause a lot of pain.


            Log out and log back in.


            Actually, it will come back next time you do an update of Adobe Reader, so you'll need to do this again then.

              Many thanks!  That's a great suggestion.  If only Adobe didn't update so often . . . (I do have it set to manual, not auto, update -- but still, one needs the updates from time to time.)
