Adobe Reader XI 11.0.03 - Japanese

What is Adobe Reader XI - Japanese?

Adobe Reader XI is an application designed to view, create, manipulate, print and manage files in Portable Document Format (PDF). Acrobat and Reader are widely used as a method of presenting information with a fixed layout similar to a paper publication. Adobe also allows Acrobat plug-ins to be developed by third parties, which can add extra functions to the Acrobat program.

About  (from Adobe Systems)

Adobe Reader software is the free trusted standard for reliably viewing, printing, and annotating PDF documents. It's the only PDF file viewer that can open and interact with all types of PDF content, including forms and multimedia.


Upon installation, it defines an auto-start registry entry which allows the program run on each boot for the user which installed it. 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 52 files and is usually about 98.42 MB (103,196,218 bytes).
