Re: Foxit is nice enough...

+1 for Sumatra. I've been using it for a while and it seems to render everything without a hitch - except for the active documents but I'd rather they went away anyway. It is also fairly small and isn't bloated.

I can't comment on if it's secure or not though, who knows but as it just displays the static files (as far as I know) there should be less opportunity for problems.......

Unfortunately some companies send out active PDFs that require Adobe Reader. HMRC being one of them, it's a PITA having to set up the certificates and open up Adobe Reader to allow the forms to run.
