Exe program – Files with an extension of “exe” are executable programs.
What is it:
AdobeARM.exe is a file which may have been installed on your system by you or installed with another program or package. The actual hard drive location and folder is also listed below for you, as you can always verify where it’s located on your hard drive, as this makes sure it is not spyware, adware, or virus related. Sometimes the spyware or virus writers simply place a similar or same named file elsewhere on your computer hoping to fool you into thinking the rogue software is a good software module instead. This AdobeARM.exe is often confused with mobile related software since Arm is a popular mobile chip that is in almost every mobile device (trades under the armh stock symbol). That has nothing to do with AdobeARM.exe. This file is from Adobe, and it is part of the Adobe reader manager software that manages software updates. I usually like to just manage software updates myself instead of having background programs running and exchanging information with servers. This file is considered a safe file, and it is not known to be related to any spyware, adware or virus related installations. (However as I stated, I prefer to manage this stuff myself so I removed this from my registry startup list). Visit adobearm.exe for complete information on this task or process.
