As many of you already know FOXIT is a .pdf file reader.

I got a heads up today to update it, which I did..............using my normal method of downloading the file then launching it.

It wanted to know if it could change my search browser to ask.com and add some toolbar and some other crap.

Now, the defaults appeared to be yes, given that the defaults were green ticks.......so I unchecked them.

Then, about a half-hour later one of my "system policemen" pops up and says "this ask.com thing wants to update itself"

What is it about "NO" that FOXIT does not understand.........???????????????

I now regard it as crapware, scumware and top of my DOS (delete on sight) list.

If you have stock:

Opinion: Strong sell (whilst some mug will buy it?)

I'm changing pdf viewers. :D
