Your problem is that you are 9 updates behind. The Acrobat patches will usually only work with one or two levels behind. There are links to all the updates here: http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/product.jsp...

You need to start at 8.1.5 and work your way up.

Aha! I had uninstalled/reinstalled Acrobat because of a problem I had with my HP 4280 printer-scanner yielding over-sized PDF scans, so I reinstalled both the HP and Acrobat. I updated Acrobat at the time, not knowing that it would only go up one step.

After reading your post, I opened Acrobat, updated and rebooted multiple times until there were no more updates; a little simpler for me than going to Adobe each time. The final patch satisfied Secunia.

The scan size issue was resolved, and reinstalling Acrobat may have been unnecessary, but turned out to be instructive. Thank you for clearing things up.
