I installed Adobe Acrobat Pro DC 2023, uploaded by Thumper.
First thing I do before installing a program or application, I scan it first with Bitdefender Internet Security and this one was clean.
Then I create a system restore point, and as a backup I save a System image to an external Hard Disc Seagate 5 TB connected with USB3.
I disable the internet connection, and then disable the AV.
First I use the Adobe uninstaller tool to remove an earlier version.
I selected setup.exe and it installed with no problems.
I then selected update, which also had no problems.
Then the patch with no problems
Then checked the task manager to disable all Adobe functions.
Then I typed in "Services" using Windows search and it opens up, and down the bottom you will see "Extended" or "Standard" Adobe Acrobat update service was running, you click on "Properties" "Startup type" there is 4 options, I clicked "Disabled"
open acrobat, go to preferences > updater > disable updates
I have Windows 10 64 installed, for you information.
