Windows shutdown permission error
After latest update to Acrobat DC, dated 2/4/2020, users get the following error when shutting down or restarting their computer: "You don't have permission to shut down and restart this computer."
The problem seems to be isolated to shutting down/restarting via the start button. The computer can be shut down via command prompt, or red button on login screen.
If I disable the 3 Adobe services relating to license check and updates, then restart, the problem goes away.
Well, if you read a lot of the posts, it seems that people are having success by disabling the Adobe services that they just upgraded to. So I respectfully disagree that it's a Microsoft problem. I'd like to note, that I have several computers that have the Microsoft updates, and not the latest version of Adobe, and they work fine.
