Hi, every time I connect to a new network (wi-fi), Acrobat Reader automatically starts. How can I prevent this from happening?

Sorry for not being able to response to your query on time.
Hoping that you have got this issue resolved by now? If you are still looking for the resolution, then check couple of things mentioned below-
1- If you don't wish Acrobat Reader DC to be launched automatically, then you may disable it from Startup menu. Here are the steps-
2- If it still doesn't help, then you may check the application's behavior in "Hidden Admin" account.
Steps for how to create Hidden Admin-
Create a "Hidden Administrator" user account following the steps shared below and launch the application in that.
1-Hold the Windows Key while pressing “R” to bring up the Windows Run dialog box.
2-Type: net user administrator /active:yes
Replace “yes” with “no” to disable the admin account on the welcome screen.
The problem is that it opens not on a system startup but when the network connection (wi-fi on most cases) is restored. So it happens on wakeup for example or just after switching on wi-fi and connecting to a network.
I'm experiencing the same problem with Acrobat Pro DC on Mac.
Mac OS X High Sierra 10.13.6
I am having this issue now too. Adobe opens automatically when I connect to a new/different wifi network. Adobe is not listed in the start up options.
Mac OS Big Sur 11.6
I am also having the same issue! I am using 10.13.6 though. Have you managed to find a solution? If so please help
