    Adobe Reader Synchronizer? (Adobe Acrobat Reader 8)

    I just installed the freshly released Adobe Reader v.8, as I read that it was better
    with respect to recent security holes. It installs two items in the Startup folder,
    the speed launch thing, which can simply be removed, and "Adobe Reader Synchronizer".
    So far I haven't been able to figure out what the ARS does, and whether it's necessary.
    Does anyone know of a good, readable treatment of the issue?? I would like to know
    what I need it for, whether it's OK to remove it from the Startup folder, etc. I couldn't find it
    in the Reader Help menu, btw.

    I've disabled it, like all previous Adobe Reader attempts to start itself up at logon time. Maybe that's why an update attempt comes up with the message that it can't find a connection to the internet?!

    Many thanks for that link! Good info. I misread it as seconding the question,
    while actually it has the answer!
