Not sure where this should end up,but I'm sure it will be guided to the correct forum,as always.
After doing quite a bit of reading today,I decided that the Adobe PDF viewer is a resource hog. I uninstalled any traces of it I could find in my add/remove programs part of my pc. Just a few minutes ago while reading another post here at BC, I discovered I had to install Adobe Flash player to view an article thru YouTube.
My question is how does flash differ from the pdf viewer? They're both an Adobe thing,right?

I opted to download a small viewer called Sumatra,by the way.

Thanks

It's a different product and unlike Adobe Reader, there are no alternatives for Flash.

FWIW: There are various replacements for Adobe Reader...that are not as obnoxious.

You may want to try Foxit Reader, Cute PDF, or any of the others available...then choose the one that you like the most.

Google Article on PDF Viewers, etc.
