Clean-up of Old Adobe Reader/Acrobat Programs

With the successful deployment of Adobe Acrobat XI Pro, older versions of Adobe PDF products are not necessary and may even pose a security risk. Therefore, any computer that has Acrobat XI Pro will have any other version of Adobe Acrobat or Reader uninstalled starting today. What do you need to do? If you do not yet have Acrobat XI Pro, please restart your computer and refer to the previous blog posts for instructions. If you do have Acrobat XI Pro installed then no further action is needed; any necessary uninstall actions will occur silently. Thank you for helping keep all Pepperdine computers up-to-date with the latest software!
