Hi,
 
Just had notification that from Acobe Acrobat saying that another programme has added a new extension that may change the way that Chrome works, it goes on to say that it can 'read and change all the data on the websites I visit, manage my downloads, communicate with cooperating native applications' and asks if I want to Enable the extension or remove it from Chrome.
 
Do you think its OK to go ahead and enable it?  Sorry for bothering you.   :/

Hello Linda,

I got the same extension popping up in my Chrome Browser as well today. It's regular behavior that was included in a recent update to Adobe's Acrobat Reader DC:

Hi, thanks for the link; so if I do remove this extension will it have any affect on the way Acrobat performs at the moment? Things are becoming very creepy on-line don't you think?!

Just leave it and don't worry about it. 😉
