  • I'm done with Foxit software

    Every time I update Foxit Reader it installs Foxit Cloud on my computer WITHOUT ASKING ME. That is horrible practice. I am done with Foxit software forever and I will not recommend it to anyone. I cannot stand it when a company thinks it can install things without your permission.

    By the way, the amount of crap left over in the registry and on my hard drive from Foxit after uninstalling is ridiculous.

      Hi Krusty545,

      1) Currently there's no option offered to disable Foxit Cloud during the installation, but we've already added it to our to-do list. I've also forwarded your comments as feedback to Reader PM team for processing. Feedback ID#: SERVER-402. For your current workaround, please go to "Control Panel"->"Add/Remove Programs" to uninstall Foxit Cloud Reading.

      2) For current 6.x versions, Reader does leave registry in your computer after un-installation. This is meant to save your customized settings in Foxit Reader in case you need it for re-installation. Since Reader 7.0, after the un-installation, Reader will ask you if you want to delete the registry, then you could make the choice according to your requirements.
