Foxit is very good - get it here:

Having said that Adobe Reader should be free if you go to the proper Adobe website:

Makes me think that upgrade was bogus.

And I'd be a little inclined (may a lot inclined) to scan the system for a few pests - malware etc... Especially if there's even the remotest possibility the site etc. you went to is indeed other than legit...

These are three free and safe to use utilities it would be wise to run...



Junkware RemovalTool (JRT):

JRT installs to the desktop from where you run it. It opens a small dos style window; follow the instructions therein. It will reboot the system as a part of its clean out routine.

Install each of the above "manually" NOT using the automatic option. Carefully uncheck "any" pre-checked boxes (so "helpfully" already checked - for your convenience..); and that way you will avoid installing a host of "stuff" you really don't want or need.

The legit Adobe Reader software's (both XI and DC) are free! At least initially (first 14 days) then they charge either monthly, or annual subscription rates. I think they're trying to make up the money invested in the cloud technology that both these new (improved?) software's cost to research/operate. I'm presently attempting to download PDF-XChange Viewer, freeware from Softonic. I have Norton Utilities and use it routinely to clean/scan and route out bugs and Malware. Thank you all for your advice, I really appreciate your advice and thoughts. I'll let you know if I ever make sense of this. Paul:-)

Couple of points.

Watch for unwanted goodies from Softonic.
Foxit is good, I ran it for years - free, safe and much lighter than Adobe Reader.

On this computer (Win 8.1) it had Adobe Reader on it from new (over 2 years) - never been asked to pay anything. Wife had vista for years - she was never asked to pay either, nor on her current Win 7.

The three programs given in #2 regularly find what Norton and others miss on here. They are well worth running.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
