A note about Adobe update

Today, when I came back from the movies and restarted my Dell XPS cold, Adobe Reader updated successfully, and called for a second restart, after having failed several times because of not having some Windows 7 (Professional) permissions.   The only thing different was that I accidentally restarted without the power being on, just battery.  Windows had updated Defender today, that's all.

So far, it seems to work.  Strange.  Adobe forums link is here.

I never ran into this on the Toshiba Windows 7 notebook.  But it has a pw on the only account.  The Dell is set up with an Owner and I am the only possible user.  Perhaps this goes away if I set up a formal Administrator  (Microsoft link here).
