Update Adobe Reader

Update Adobe Reader

Adobe Reader is one of the most popular programs on the Web. It's a free program that lets you easily view and sign PDF documents that anyone sends you. Since PDF documents are incredibly important, Reader is on most computers.

Hackers frequently target this program and so you need to install the regular updates to keep hackers at bay. That's why I've rounded up links so you can make sure you have the most recent versions. If you do have a recent version, however, it should warn you about updates automatically or when you open it.

If you want to be sure you're updated, simply download the file from the Adobe Acrobat Reader download page. Be sure to uncheck the "Optional offer" to install McAfee security software. Also, watch out during installation because it might ask if you want to install other third-party software.

If you'd like to skip the whole process entirely, you can dump Reader for another PDF program. Sumatra and Foxit Reader are all good choices. Some browsers have a PDF viewer built in, too.

No matter what you use, make sure you're running up-to-date security software, too. This will help prevent viruses from hitting your computer if hackers try to sneak one in.
