How to get Adobe Acrobat Reader without using the Download Manager (DLM)

If you’re like me and you don’t like adding MORE silly IE helpers or add-on installers or other stuff that just takes up room. Especially in cases like this when we’re talking about a 35 meg file.

Just go here:

ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/win/

and skip the whole thing. Pick your version (10 is the latest as of this writing) and your language (en-US) for me and grab the exe file.

NOTE: most companies have a public FTP site. If you can stand browsing around a bit, you usually can find things like previous versions and skip little add-on’s like these.
