What’s the difference between Adobe Acrobat and Reader?

Adobe Reader is a PDF viewer software that lets you view and print documents. The software is free to use, and it’s one of the best tools for this task.

Sadly, the application doesn’t support any editing so if you want to create PDF files or edit them, you’ll need to use Acrobat Pro software.

The application has all the features of Reader, but it supports editing, scanning, signing, and file conversion. All these options don’t come for free, but you can test the software for a week and see if it suits you.

Is LogTransport2.exe dangerous?

LogTransport2 is perfectly safe, and it belongs to Adobe Acrobat. If you notice it, you won’t have to worry about it, since it’s free from malware.

The main purpose of this file is to send logs to Adobe, and while it’s not harmful, it does collect some of your data, so you might want to disable it.

Can I stop applications from sending data to Adobe?

The data sharing option is turned on by default, and all collected information is used to analyze user behavior. Many users don’t approve of this and want to stop their data from being shared.

Fortunately, this feature is fully optional, and it can be disabled from the Adobe Account Privacy settings page. However, most users won’t even know that this feature is available, so they’ll keep it enabled.

These are some of the solutions that you can use if you’re getting a Logtransport2.exe error while trying to shut down your computer.

This issue isn’t serious, and it won’t cause Adobe Acrobat Reader crashes on your PC, but it can get tedious since it appears frequently.
