Hello AZZA

Click on the Fill & Sign button, that is in what you have highlighted in the image and after that the tool will disappear.

Thanks

The method is described here
http://www.adobe.com/devnet-docs/acrobatetk/tools/ReleaseNotes/11/11.0.09.html

"HKLM’s cServices\bEnableSignPane set to 0 removes the Fill & Sign Pane from the user interface."

The full Registry Path is HKLM\Software\Policies\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\11.0\FeatureLockDown\

Although I have Reader version 11.0.09 I do not find cServices\bEnableSignPane  there.  I suppose it can be added manually.  See
