    Ever since I installed Adobe Creative Suite, a little adobe acrobat toolbar has been popping up in the top left corner of the Microsoft Word workspace. I went into the toolbar menu to remove it (view>toolbars>customize) but it continues to show up! It's not a huge issue, but it's failry annoying and I was hoping someone here might know how to remove it! Thanks very much!

    Man, that drives me friggen nuts. I've tried everything under the sun to remove it permanently to no avail.

    Eternal gratitude to whomever solves this one.

    Yeah, it's really annoying, isn't it? I hate apps that insinuate themselves all over my system, and this is a prime example.

    1. Launch Acrobat.
    2. Go to Help in the menu bar.
    3. Select Detect and Repair.
    4. Deselect PDF Maker and press Continue.

    That should solve it. Unfortunately, every time you update Acrobat, I'm fairly certain that PDF Maker reappears in Word.
