How do you get Adobe Acrobat 5.0 to stop automatically making an Adobe directory and an Acrobat subdirectory in your home folder every time you use it, even just to read a PDF file off of a webpage? (Nothing is put into these empty folders, which makes me wonder why they're even there in the first place.)

What "home" folder are you referring to? Is it a favorites folder or a folder in Windoze Explorer?

I'm running Acrobat Reader 5.0 (freeware), and it did put one folder in My Documents after install, but it hasn't been back after I deleted it.

You'd have to search the registry, but if you don't know where to go exactly and what to remove or to change , I think you'd better leave it alone.

The "My Documents" folder on Windows XP.
