  1. Ridiclous… You post 2 different PDF readers & both PC Decrapifier & CCleaner?
    They do the exact same things.

    How about taking it just abit serious instead of just making a article for the sake of making one?

  2. Nice list. Just one comment. There does not exist word “updation” as in your sentence “because Adobe reader undergo constant updation”. It should be just ” because Adobe reader undergoes constant updates”. Thanks!
