I have a friend who only has a dial up connection. He was trying to download Adobe Reader (free program) but could not because of his slow connection. I tried to download and save it on a disk for him (i have broadband) but couldn't because instead of giving me an option to "run or save" it just automatically installs on my computer. Is there a way I can just download the installation program and save to disk?

I can give you a direct link which you can right-click and save.

Which OS/Version?

Click the link to "other operating systems" and follow instructions. Make sure to uncheck the button that selects Google Toolbar unless you want that too.

Thanks, I managed to do it by cancelling the download then clicking on the bit that says "if it does not start click here to download"
