I'm having some "issues" with AdobeUpdater.exe and slow shutdowns. I don't know if they're related, but thought it worth mentioning.
First, about the Adobe Updater, everytime I click on a page that requires Adobe Reader, it's taking a very long time to load, and it's hogging my resources - CPU runs at 100%. Seems it won't stop this until I manually open up Task Manager and click on End Process. Between the Adobe Updater and Acrobat Reader, the two of them are causing the 100% readout on my CPU, split about evenly at times, other times the Updater takes it all.
I Googled the AdobeUpdater.exe today and was a bit surprised to see that it could be a major problem. This is where I need someone's expertise, and would appreciate your help.
Secondly, the issue of the slow shutdowns. I posted a thread about this a week or so ago. After doing a System Restore, going back 6 days to before I loaded back on several programs after a recent Full System Recovery, the shutdowns were better and normal at times. At least now there were some normal shutdowns. I've only added back in one program, Picasa, as I wanted to be able to see who/what might be causing this. Since there seems to be no consistency here, I don't think I can blame Picasa.
I'm running a Compaq Presario, 80 GB, 70% free space, 512 RAM, 1.83 AMD processor. I use Firefox to browse. After said Recovery, I have downloaded all necessary updates, Windows and security, and keep them updated. I have noticed that for some reason Spybot S & D is running ultra slow when I click on Search for Problems. Otherwise, everything SEEMS normal, but I'm still learning. Thanks again for anyones help.
