    All you have to do is UNcheck the toolbar option during install
    & you'll have NO ask toolbar

    USA still the best. But getting worse!
    I got tired of Foxit. Over the versions it got slower & more cumbersome & invasive. I finally found an OSS PDF reader I'm happy with, SumatraPDF.

    http://blog.kowalczyk.info/software/sumatrapdf/index.html

    What is Sumatra PDF?

    Sumatra PDF is a slim, free, open-source PDF viewer for Windows. Portable out of the box.
    Why another PDF reader?

    Sumatra has a minimalistic design. Simplicity has a higher priority than a lot of features.

    It's small and starts up very fast.

    It's designed for portable use: only one file so you can run it from external USB drive. Doesn't write to registry.
