"Reading Tagged Document"...how to turn that off?

Acrobat Professional 8 today for some reason started popping up a "Reading Tagged Document" window, every time I open a pdf.  How do I get it to stop trying to read the pdf documents? See the attached file for the popup window message.

Try this answer from the Adobe forums


Remember Adobe 8 was not much good after XP and the advent of 64-bit operating systems,

Thanks John.  I tried that one and what it does is just not pop up the window.  It is still "reading" the document. I don't know why it started doing that today. I have this installed on three machines and the other machines are not doing that.  Would like to figure it out, but if I can't, I'll just switch to a different company like Nuance.

Or a much newer Adobe Acrobat version . I do not have this issue (Acrobat V19)

On the problem machine, make a new, test Windows User Profile (Account). Log into the new Windows Account and test again

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

Did you recently (yesterday or today) install or update Nuance's Dragon Naturally Speaking? If so, that could be the reason that it started today. This Nuance Knowledge Base article addresses the issue:
Adobe Acrobat prompts that the document is untagged and must be prepared for reading

Keep in mind that Nuance uses Flexera's FlexNet Connect Common Software Manager for its upgrades (Section VII in this EE article), so that could be how you got the Dragon upgrade. It could also explain why the other machines are not doing it, i.e., they may not have gotten the Dragon upgrade. Regards, Joe

P.S. The title of your question should say Untagged, not Tagged.

Actually, this machine has Adobe Acrobat 8 Pro on it.  And it only did that yesterday after an employee forwarded a pdf.  and thereafter, every pdf would trigger that popup. I notice it didn't do it at all today, so makes me think it was something about that one pdf that somehow caused there to be a temporary thing where Adobe was trying to "read tagged document"?
