I believe this to have been patched with 9.1. However,can you run foxit reader in liu of adobe reader and simply uninstall from add/remove entirely? Making Foxit the only pdf reader

If like many U only use Adobe Reader to read web pages & email attachments in the PDF format U only require a reader.

The updated Adobe (9.1) has put 3 elements in add/remove
Adobe Reader
Acrobat.com
Air
in all a total of 41.1MB!

Foxit is about 4MB

If U prefer Foxit U can uninstall all 3 Adobe elements and still read any PDF document perfectly.
