Why does Adobe Reader need to update so often?
In short To keep the users safe and maintain the market leadership with its unmatched flagship product. The long explanationnBeing a ubiquitous applicationes with a price. Examples Microsoft Windows Adobe Flash Player and Adobe Reader. Since the install base (in terms of number of machines running these worldwide) of each of these is so large people with malicious intent try to find vulnerabilities in these applications system so as to be able to exploit the users' machines for various reasons (financial theft credential theft etc.) With each update that you receive Adobe tries to address any publicly disclosed vulnerabilities and add mechanisms to reduce the surface area for any such attacks in future as soon as possible - as far as I know 2 weeks in case of zero-day exploits. This is so that the security of the users is notpromised. The question that arises is Why did Adobe not write code with this in mind in the first place? Adobe Reader has been in existence since 1993. At that time and for quite a while since then the idea that someone would find exploits (such as buffer overflow stack overflow etc.) in popular software applications was alien to the programmers. However that assumption is incorrect now which has led to so much trouble for Adobe. Adobe Reader X on Windows was released earlier this month. One of the prime areas of focus for this release was to improve the security architecture of Adobe Reader with the introduction of sandboxed-mode () and you can expect updates to Adobe Reader less often now.
Why do people put up with Adobe Reader's frequent updates which often force a reboot?

How can I stop Adobe Reader from auto-updating?

Here is the article for the same Adobe Acrobat and Reader s Here is a for tutorial videos of acrobat to quickly get started I have started it just now please support my channel so I can make more informative videos. s
Did Adobe automatically update something to Reader that caused Preview to break?
Acrobat may have associated PDF's to itself and it may not be Preview that's opening when you click on them but Acrobat and Acrobat may be showing the errors. If you are specifically opening the PDF's with Preview (File Open) and then getting the errors it may be something else. Did you install Mavericks recently? Or did you open it with Acrobat or another program and then save the PDF again? If any of these programs updated the PDF they may have created a PDF that Preview has issues with. Look at that first and then post back.
PhD students: How do you keep your notes while reading scientific papers?
This is a great and important question the ability to efficiently sort and access your papers is such a crucial part of doing effective research. During my PhD I have spent my fair share of time to explore and experiment with different notes taking and literature organization techniques for scientific papers. Here is my conclusionn For the legendary papers you should print them out use your pen and highlighters as you study them bring them with you on the train in the bathroom and while you lay on bed so you can ensure easy access and high reading frequency to remember all the important details and get inspirations from them. I highly rmend to use binders to organize the hard copiesn For this method I only print the highly relevant papers. You can use different binders for different projects different fields or different time era whatever works for you. Personally I found this old school method (versus using software) to be extremely useful and versatile. Since after school this habit has carried over and I use it to organize work related documents such as project & client information. The ability to just grab a folder turn to the page for information and jot down notes at any time without electricity withoutputer without launching and searching smokes anyputer based techniques out of the water! And a nice bonus when your bosses to your desk asks for quick information nothing beats impressing your superior. You should the binders sit on your desk within the reach of your arm at any moment n n In terms of digital notes taking (for the non-crucial papers) I rmend simply explore the free Adobe Reader. UPDATE I used to rmend AcrobatPro for this task but then I discovered the current Adobe Reader XI has all thementing feature I need! n Whatpany can work with PDF files better than Adobe? Adobe Reader you can easily highlight and notes and draw shapes (much like PowerPoint) and save them and be permanent part of the original PDF document. Screenshot of usage of drawing markups I made on some patent (red color are insertted with the Drawing Markup tools) as you can see you can make sufficient markups for note-taking purposes n Below screenshot shows how I typically highlightment as I read PDF documents all are achieved by the features under Comment column nOfficial document from Adobe about drawing markup toolsn Annotations and drawing markup tools overview In terms of paper organization I can not stress this enough Mendeley is the way to go ! I have tried themon ones such as Zotero EndNote EverNote Google products Microsoft products without going into details (there are many parisons on the web that you can read) let me repeat this Mendeley is the way to go! Mendeley actually has a built-in notes taking highlighting feature. The key here is that all info. are stored in the cloud. Which means if you take notes or highlights on a paper at work it will show up in your otherputers! Personally I haven't explored this feature a lot (was bit buggy back then). But seems like a great solutionn n
When will Adobe realize that users hate to receive that many updates for Reader?
Would you rather that we didn't fix bugs or close security holes that are discovered? Your web browser probably updates itself much more often than Adobe Reader does - are you OK with that?
Why does Adobe Acrobat Reader keep on upgrading the version and installing updates, while end-users usually use this application primarily for readingediting PDFs?
Because Adobe isn't just a PDF reader. nIll just scoop the answer from an excellent Reddit page. n TL;DR Adobe Reader is a huge system and reading PDFs is one italic of its many functions. If all you care is reading PFDs only then you should ditch it and get Sumatra or versionnlets follow the is a reason its not called Adobe PDF reader but Acrobat reader or Adobe reader. It is a monster of a system. reading PDFs is one italic of many functions. For a project i had to read into adobe acrobat and heck its a real monster it hasnaplete mail server document lifecycle management system DRM client full fledged document tracking system form capabilities statistics for your docs (imagine sending a survey and tracking the collected data) video AND audio playing capabilities (yes you can audio and video in PDF) as well as capabilites for other formats (such as displaying CAD(!) data in its own 3Dviewer).nall in all the full acrobat SDK is like 5 MB and its manual a couple tousand pages displaying PDFs is one function out of like 1. To you as the consumer its the bait... but the full fledged system behind it is what Adobe italic sells to its italic corporate basically say You want a full fledged content tracking system? we got it... and the best part is all your customers have the clients already italic installed! in form of the acrobat like a monster sleeping in everyputer.n see this . Its the functionparisson of the acrobat herees the scoop all functions you see are supported by acrobat reader... but you italic cant use them. They are there so you can provide them to the guys who paid for pro the pro extended package can create all that shit and all drones using acrobat reader will support the functionality. wheter they want it or here is the screamer being a normal guy you will most likely never italic need all that crap. You know what does it mean when i say document tracking system? its just a fancy word for the dream of every adverstiser Corporate customers can track how succesful their newsletter advertising and customer Polls .. they can track how efficient their spam is. And all you sheeples who over the years keeping omg i just want to read PDFs why is the install file soo big italic never cared to actually read what is advice if all you care for is reading PDFs (and im sure 99% of Acrobat reader users are in this group) install Foxit or Sumatra.n nBasically in any software greater (number of) features bring more bugs. Its the same with Adobe. But from Adobe's point of view they always try to fix vulnerabilities before we are taken advantage of. Just so you know that Adobe updates are not actual BS go to this Bulletin from Adobe and read a few.
