If you do a lot of internet surfing then it is a virtual certainty that you will be asked to download
this software by one site or another at some point. If you use your PC for business purposes then you
will probably also need this for reading PDF's sooner or later.
This means that you are just as well downloading it now rather than waiting to be prompted for it by
a site or discover that you can't open an important file without it.
Acrobat Reader is the most commonly used program for reading PDF files and this latest version has a
lot of added features to let you get more out of it. Some of the icons have changes a little but if you
are using an older version you won't have any trouble getting used to the new one.
If you are on an old version then just choose to download the new one and the download assistant will
automatically pick up the fact that you have a previous version and do all the necessary work for
The package also includes the option of including a free McAfee security package, although if you
take this you will get regular messages reminding you to buy the full version, so if you already have a
good antivirus program you would be as well un-ticking this option before downloading the reader. If you
are currently looking for a new antivirus program then McAfee is one of the best around, and you might
like to try out this free trial to see if you like the layout and the interface it uses.
The reader itself isn't that much different from previous versions but you now get to play multimedia
files in various different formats and you can submit PDF forms too.
In summary, you will find it hard to use your PC and to surf the internet without the Acrobat Reader.
If you already have the previous one on your computer then you will probably get regular prompts to
update it anyway, so you would be well advised to simply take a couple of minutes to do the download and
then forget about it as it works away in the background letting you use PDFs.
