Better update UX
Acrobat will sometimes generate a pop-up that says "Update completed!" with two options: "Restart Now" and "Cancel". Naturally, I assumed that "Restart Now" meant restart Acrobat. Because that's what it means in every other application on my computer, from Firefox and Chrome, to Intellij, to Microsoft Word, to Steam, and so on. In reality, that innocuous looking button immediately restarted my entire computer, without any sort of warning or confirmation prompt. I've twice lost work (from other applications, like my web browser) because I forgot that in Adobe's world, a user is going to want to immediately restart their entire computer and stop everything that they're working on just to update a PDF editor. I'm unclear on why Acrobat even needs a full restart to update, but if it does, it should at least warn me that it's going to do something so drastic.
Thanks for your suggestion. This is being worked upon to reword this dialog and button labels.

I would call this a BUG!
I can think of NO reason for not giving at least a modal dialog with more info and choices, like "You must restart your computer for this update to take effect." "Restart your computer now," or "Restart you computer later," at the very least.
