Adobe knows where the pooch is; that is because they harbor carnal desires for it

Lee finally allowed Adobe Acrobat to update on her computer. The updater did the following:
  • nagged her repeatedly until she updated.
  • put icons for more crappy programs on her desktop without permission.
  • required multiple reboots to stop complaining.
  • broke her scanner.
  • set up crappy update services that autolaunched and consumed way too much memory
  • caused hard drive thrashing upon start-up.
The scanner problem had me worried, and I'm not 100% certain how I fixed it.

Seriously, you guys. You make software to read PDFs. We use our computers to read PDFs about .4% of the time. The other 99.6% of the time, not so much. Stop the madness!
