  • Bug FoxitPDFReaderUpdateService running after uninstall.

    So, I have uninstalled Foxit Reader for a couple of days now and today I checked the Activity Monitor on my Mac and noticed that "FoxitPDFReaderUpdateService" was running. I have noticed this many times even after I force quit. What is this?
