- Every time Acrobat will be updated (using Adobe Updater for
example), all "self-heal components" (mostly the Adobe PDF plugin, the
PDFMaker add-on to Microsoft Office, and the Adobe PDF virtual
printer) will be reinstalled without asking.
- Every now and then Acrobat checks whether these components are
present, and if so asks whether they should be reinstalled. Once I
think I was offered a check box "Don't ask again", but now I can't
find it anymore.
- The above check can be initiated manually from within Acrobat, using
Help > Repair Acrobat Installation.
You can see what the self-heal components are by Ctrl-clicking the
Acrobat application, and navigating to
/Applications/Adobe Acrobat 8 Professional/Adobe Acrobat
(or similar for Adobe Acrobat 7 or Adobe Reader).
