My company machines are running Windows XP SP3 with Adobe Reader X (I am using 10.0.1 but also tried 10.1, the same outcome) and these machines have to dialup with VPN, the default connection, to access Internet. Everytime Reader X starts, the VPN dial-up connection box prompted after 10~15 secs. The Adobe Reader X will freeze if I ignore the dial-up box and leave it behind until I click Cancel of the box. I am sure I already uncheck the auto update option in Preference so this is not the point. Are there anywhere I missed for this annoying problem since many users reported for this problem.
