Many here already told you a few of the best options... but I don’t believe anyone has mentioned the problem that got you in the mess in the first place..

ANYTHING Adobe, update/upgrade direct from their site... NEVER let it do an auto-update.
It can cause instances like this... AND there are many exploits that people fake you into installing virus/trojan/loggers through the Adobe update pop-up.

I wish you the best of luck, and remember to NOT use the auto.. cancel and go directly to their site if there is an update ;)

Just asking but is it not wise to turn down anything offered unsolicited from anyone

Bikkuri wins! Since everyone has to use Adobe, it’s a frequent target for trojan attacks.
