Gave it a second chance because sometimes updates don't take the first time and on re-opening IE again I started recdeiving the update notice again every time I opened a new web page. Clicking no did no good because it just popped up again.
Finally went into Adobe to see what was going on and maybe find a way to stop the upgrade notices and discovered that the upgrade they were trying so hard to give me doesn't work on 64 bit systems - and they would tell me how to set my IE back to 32 bit so I could get their update. What??? I don't want to set my IE back to 32 bit. ---and they won't stop hounding me to update. How can I get this pop-up to go away????
You could try using a browser that doesn't fail in every benchmark possible
. Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Opera outperform the crap of IE, better support current standards, and set the curve for functionality.
IE is terrible. There is no arguing with this.
