On my current setup (Adobe Acrobat Reader 8.1.2) acropdf.dll is the only Acrobat Reader ActiveX, and it's working fine. I don't want all that junk. Now I did notice a reported vulnerability in Acrobat Reader 8.1.2 on secunia.com. I tried to update, but that update brought all sorts of stuff on my computer, ActiveX and even something (plural or singular) in the software panel. The BHO was also annoying. I must admit that I was not aware of what everything did, but I didn't like it, so I uninstalled everything and reinstalled the original 8.1.2. And then I did some cleaning, like removing the BHO and stuff on the startup list. Since when can't an Adobe document simply be a document, without all sorts of junk ? Has anyone found a workaround, other than disabling scripting computer-wide ?
