if language bar disappear, try ctfmon.exe. see

windows drag underneath taskbar may not be able to restore, use stack windows to show them.

does not have transliterated|homophonic russian keyboard, see on installing .kbd

may lose trust relationship to domain, un-join and re-join (if you cannot do it. e.g. not knowing local administrator password, regwizard before 6/21 w/o using password manager to change password, change Network ID instead)

... Foxit Reader 4.2 adds the digital signature verification function and supports ASLR & DEP to protect the security of PDF files, which forms two more defensive walls to keep the valuable information from maliciously falsifying and revealing. ... - security fix
Foxit Reader fixes the crash issue caused by the new iPhone/iPad jailbreak program efficiently and prevents the malicious attacks to your computer.
What's new in Foxit Reader
· Fixed the crash issue when opening certain PDFs.
· Optimized the reading engine and fixed the issue where the scrolling becomes very slowly when reading large PDFs.
· Users will not be prompted to set default PDF reader when either or both Phantom and Foxit Reader is installed.
· PDF icons are reverted to other Reader’s PDF icons when Phantom/Foxit Reader is uninstalled, if those exist.
· Fixed the issue where the system sets Foxit Reader as the default PDF viewer without user permission when Foxit Reader launches.

What's new in Foxit Reader
Added a advanced set of professional features:
· The New Reader 4.0 now includes Comments tools, Text Viewer & Text Converter, Form Filler, Spell Checker and Advanced Editing Tools; and it is still free. No additional licensing is required for more features with PDFs.
Enhanced Safe Mode Setting:

Reader's Javascript does not work on some form PDF (like purchasing requisition), no javascript for the calculate field shows in document javascript even it works in Acrobat and LiveCycle Designer. Only version check scripts show.

you may see this error (browsers war all over again? "you have to use IE to view this page")

XDP files (server-side processing, flexible layout forms etc.) may give you this error (potential other XFA - XFDF, FDF etc. also)

Foxit Reader 3.3.1 2010.05.20 strengthens the security of PDFs and protects users from misleading pop-up.

Security Enhancement The New Foxit Reader has implemented a new screening process which protects end users from misleading messages embedded within the parameters of a pop-up dialog box. A pop-up dialog contains an area which is reserved for a message that is generated by the rendered PDF. Due to Foxit's concern that this message may mislead users to take an unadvisable action, Foxit Reader will no longer display the content of the message and removes any parameters within the Pop-up message that can be manipulated by the PDF.

In some forms, Windows 7 TIP may come up when you try to enter things in some fields.

Also may have problem with Aero in VS2010, Ps. Supposedly if you use Verde or HP's driver (now up to 258.96) instead of lenovo (currently 189.55) nvidia driver, it solves some of the problems. You have to modifiy NVLT.inf/NVBL.inf to get it to install.
