Initially I wasn't sure what the very large background download was....I had to use a number of Microsoft diagnostic tools to determine.
It turned out to be AR Updater. I am currently on AR 8.2.
I only have EDIT/PREF options to auto install or disable. No more options to let me choose.
I would prefer download as I realise it fixes some security issues
Current download has been going for days in b/g. I am on a slow link.
ARU never gives me any indication it is kickng off a download. I do remember telling it ages OK I was happy was auto-download.
Help/Check for updates says update is running.
How can I determine when ths monster download will finsh?. I estimare it has d/l'd about 100MB++ thus far. I occasionally need to close connection. So maybe some d/l portions have been repeated.
If I d/l installer EXE at a faster link site will this prevent auto installer from re-trying d/l on slow link (after batch install of course)?.
I have d/l'd Acrobat_Reader_Updater.pdf - it is handy but doesn't answer some questions.
Rgds Brian ps AR is great but the auto d/l is proving a strain
