Windows In previous OS News articles, I described how mature computers up to ten years oldĀ can be refurbished and made useful. One article identified and evaluated different approaches to refurbishing. This article tells how to performance tune a mature Windows computer to make it serviceable again. I hope it will interest anyone who wants to tune Windows.

It's not a good idea to install an old Acrobat reader because of the security risks

Indeed, that's what jumped out at my eyes too from the article. Acrobat Reader is well-known for all the holes it has and thus it's obviously a very bad idea to use non-recent versions. A really bad suggestion from the author!

About Foxit.. while true, it's fast and easy, I actually find the Windows version of Evince much faster. And it's completely free, too.
