Multiple RunOnce registry keys created for Acrobat and Reader versions 11.0.10 and 10.1.13

New RunOnce registry key created on every user login

With the Acrobat/Reader 11.0.10 and 10.1.13 update (on Windows), every time a user logs on to a computer, a new RunOnce registry key is created. While this new key is not actually launching an executable and would not slow down system startup, it does cause third-party programs that monitor such key changes to display an alert. 

This problem does not appear on Mac OS.

Solution 1: Logoff from your computer and log back in

Solution 2: Manually run the msi installer

Run the msi installer posted here. Restart your computer, if required.
