    When I access something on the net that uses Adobe Acrobat to read the pdf file I keep getting a notification form Kiero that is is trying to connect to Adobe Systems Inc. Is this normal. Also even after I close the reader out I will get two or three more notifications.

    Deke,

    It is probably the auto update feature in Acrobat accessing the web to search for updates.

    You can check to see if it is set to auto update by opening Acrobat and going to Edit > Preferences > General and scroll down to "Update" and see if it is set to update weekly, monthly or manually.

    This is weird. I can't get Adobe to open. The only time I have used it is when I click on a link that opens it and I have never opened it myself. What next?
