My OS is Win 7x64 and currently have the latest adobe reader for pdf. Keep all programs current through secunia psi. However read some tutorials with regards to foxitreader (http://www.foxitsoftware.com/pdf/reader/) and some think it is more secure. Does anyone have this and if so what are your observations? Have received guidance and assistance from BC previously and certainly come to respect recommendations. Thanks

I've used both and like both. Foxit uses less memory and is faster, so I like it better from that standpoint.



As for security, I haven't read anything derogatory about either one.

My first alternative .pdf reader was Foxit Since then they have gone more bloated and bundled software with it. I abandoned Foxit several years ago and now prefer and recommend PDF-XChange Viewer It's free for personal use.

I use FoxIt...I just uncheck the toolbar/junk before I install. Before...I used Adobe Reader (for years) until I started having problems with it (too long ago to remember exactly what was bugging me).
