I recently realized just how bloated and crazy Acrobat Reader has become: It’s install size was 143MB on my system, and according to my firewall (PC Tools Firewall, Free Edition), it wanted 4 processes to access the internet before it would open a local pdf.

I highly recommend you uninstall this beast and go with something lighter.  Foxit Reader is a great free alternative, as is the open-source Sumatra PDF.
