Hello Experts -
I've finally reached my limit with Adobe Reader's bloat and endless, restart-required upgrades.  Can anyone recommend a lightweight, clean PDF reader, one that:
     - Loads quickly,
     - Can view, search, print, save PDF documents - that's all I need,
     - Has been around long enough to be trusted stable and bug/malware-free,
     - Is reasonably feature-complete (infrequent updates/upgrades),
     - Is not a teaser version of a larger 'premium' product - no nag windows or 'special offers'.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks.

-- Rick

I use Fowit Reader. It's free and faster than Adobe.

Look at PDF-XChange Viewer http://www.tracker-software.com/product/pdf-xchange-viewer

Foxit was good but now it seems a little awkward to me.

Also see http://www.techsupportalert.com/best-free-non-adobe-pdf-reader.htm for more alternatives.
