I absolutely dread how horrid Adobe Reader is. It's a PDF document viewer, for crying out loud, and yet it's so bloated and apt on getting "updates", which after downloading and installing, require Windows to be restarted. What in the world is it possibly doing that needs Windows to restart? While Adobe Reader has improved a TON since the versions 7 and 8, it still has a ways to go to be reasonable. It's powerful, in that it has the capability of reading documents- it will decipher handwriting and scanned print, which is of great value. The thing is, that's it- and I don't see that necessitating restarts after updating, which for some reason with adobe requires a separate process called "AdobeUpdater". Also, for the large majority of us, we don't need it to read scanned print. I'm thinking they should keep that feature as a plugin, rather than being so integrated and requiring the software to be so blasted annoying. What do you think?
