The Rivetess' other occurrence. So as not to confuse
After resetting the SWIMBO's laptop, we were back to a point where Adobe was old, and McAfee seemed to have regained a foothold.
Got rid of McAfee again and got Adobe to update, taking very great care to un-check the McAfee download box.
But first, we had to un-check a Chrome download box.
Grrrrrr. Why do Adobe do this?
Anyway, all downloaded, but we are offered something to do with Internet Explorer right in the middle of the process. SHUT THAT DOWN. and press on with the Install. Everything absolutely bog standard. Successful, it tells me.
Check the Reader, and it's still V8. No sign at all - anywhere - of V 10.
Was it because I didn't play ball with the IE part of it, and if so, what is motivating Adobe to fill people's computers with other stuff?
to answer your questions Adobe (and others) get a kickback from Google for every download of Chrome
On the other point, the download may have completed, but the installation didn't. Maybe something you did, maybe a minor problem with your PC Several ways round it Either download from the ftp site and manually install: ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader...1012_en_US.exe or uninstall the Adobe reader and use the Foxit reader instead Secure PDF Reader or uninstall the Adobe readeer and use Amazon's Kindle software
