Adobe Reader X Finally With a Sandbox But Turn OFF Your Antivirus???

Adobe had tried pretty hard to improve their security image with the new Adobe Reader X (now with kinda sandbox). But take a look at this...

Its a bit small, but the line highlighted in yellows says "You may have to temporarily disable your antivirus software". Suddenly I feel so safe... Don't you? Why would a software like Adobe Reader requires the user to turn off their Antivirus? This is only typical for installation of malwares!

Because some of the anti-virus products are not prepared to support our Sandboxing technology. Just as happened when Chrome and MSFT introduced theirs, the AV products need to update. See KB articles from the various AV folks about it.
