    I do use Foxit Reader, and I have reinstalled it many times reading their intentionally misleading window for the "ask toolbar". I've never fallen into that trap, not because I'm smart but I take my time to read installations protocols.

    Most of the people I watched installing new programs, they seemed more concerned to do it as fast as it is humanely possible, perhaps out of a geeky urban myth whereby if you are fast with your fingers it implies a great knowledge of computers (which is at times true, and it explains why even knowledgeable users can be mislead).

    I can say the same, though I like to pretend it's because I take time to read and I'm smart. ;)

    To the O.P: Unfortunately, many would read your tutorial yet still screw it up. No fault of yours, however.
    You did a good thing there, and hopefully it alerts and helps a few folks.
