“The system is shutting down” – for a freaking Adobe Reader update???
Right in the middle of some critical work, Adobe steals focus with a popup with a single “reboot now” option which is default mapped so that any of space, enter or ‘r’ will activate it. All I caught was a couple of quick bings (I was in the middle of typing something) and then up popped a little dialog box, with no cancel or postpone option, telling me that the system was about to be rebooted. And moments later, everything I was doing was gone, and my machine was tied up for nearly 5 minutes finalizing Adobe’s little update.
What gets me is I uninstalled Acrobat Reader last week. So how did it auto-update itself?
