This is a very good software. And I use it frequently.

I prefer PDF-XChange. For my opinion it's the best.

@Hilbert. This is not a software version published by Adobe. If you had taken the time to read the publisher information right above your post you would have seen that this version is made by XhmikosR. It's amazing how many people seem confused over the benefits of this version of Adobe Reader Lite and just give a knee jerk reaction that it’s a waste of time, when in fact they are massively wasting their time installing the official version. Read GetCool's review or Second Shadow's further down if you don't "get" it. XhmikosR had done Windows users a massive public service taking all the crap out of Adobe's "official" Reader installer, Unfortunately Adobe shut him down so they can continue to peddle the crappy bloated version, unfettered.

I tried yesterday to download Adobe Acrobat Lite. NO LUCK, the links just go round in circles. Same again today.
If I’ve to spend more than 500ms trying to find a workable link then forget it, I’ve much better things to do.
Adobe’s idea of sending users on an extended ‘treasure’ hunt just for a copy Adobe Reader has to be some kind of sick joke. As it is, the Adobe Reader is already the pits—has been so for years. (Even when one has the Reader it’s about as boring as trying to figure out some obscure setting in that other bottom-of-the-barrel-dirge—the Gimp.)
I’ve moved on already.

GetCool - you are 100% on the mark. I DESPISE Adobe reader and Flash Player with a passion. They are bloated, inneficiant, flakey software. But they are absolutely vital. I`ve tried the Acrobat alternatives, but they just arent as good.
Same issue with Sun Java and iTunes. ITunes wrecks a PCs performance and installed malware like Bonjur, and Sun Java is the most bloated software ever written (I think it`s up to 80MB+ now). Fortunatley WinAMP can now do most of what iTunes does without wrecking a PC. No alternative to Java.
I also noticed there is a new verion of Adobe Reader - 9.3.1 that has major security updates ??? If no one posts a "Lite" version, I will install it over the top of Lite 126.96.36.199 soon
Foxit reader is not always 100% compatible with advnaced pdf features like interactive forms and application-launching, embedded links. for Joe PC user it might be fine for businesses Reader is an absolute must. 9.x is a LOT faster than 8 and is close to the speed of Foxit even with the "speedlauncher" disabled.
