Why the need for reboot?

No other application on my PC needs a reboot after an update.  Only Acrobat Reader mysteriously can't continue its updated life without a reboot.  Is AR a virus scanner that needs root-level access?  No!  Is AR an operating system that needs to do arcane CPU ring changes and kernel installations to make its daily rounds?  No!

 

Yet Reader demands a reboot after its multiple monthly updates.  This is either poor design, or Reader with an inferiority complex thinking it has to do Big PC Things with its user-space app.

 

Why not modularize it so that reboots would only be required on changes to those SEEKRIT crypto parts?  No?  Do I hear a bunch of "I don't care"?  That is what I got from the support department, "make a suggestion" but not "of course that sounds like a reasonable thing to do!"  Becuase in 5 years of persistance on my machine, they've never considered that reboots might be a tedious thing to do for no reason other than to make life easier on Adobe developers.
