Overview

Acrobat XI Pro is a program developed by Adobe Systems. Upon installation and setup, it defines an auto-start registry entry which makes this program run on each Windows boot for all user logins. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The software installer includes 42 files and is usually about 1.99 MB (2,083,164 bytes). A majority of the PCs this is running on, most OS versions are Windows 7 (SP1). While about 80% of users of Acrobat XI Pro come from the United States, it is also popular in Germany.
