    It was all over the place before but new images have 8.1.2 with a custom MST on it to disable all the crap...

    Version 6 because it's much more lightweight than the newer versions, and works fine for us!

    I was using Adobe Reader 8.1.2, but now use Adobe Reader 9.0.0 and so far so good. Definitely worth looking at sooner rather than later. Speed hasn't changed at all which is good

    Version 8.1 here but I'm considering deploying Foxit instead over the summer. Version 9 looks so bloated!
