Overview

The most common release is 10.1.1, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version.

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. When installed, it will add a context menu handler to the Windows shell in order to provide quick access to the program. The primary executable is named AcroRd32.exe. The setup package generally installs about 72 files and is usually about 3.32 MB (3,483,320 bytes).
