It's a Windows thing - sort of like expecting a reboot to fix things.

There was a version or two of Adobe Reader that didn't create the
launchers in the 'desktop' menus - that seems to be the case with me
right now (Fedora) as a matter of fact but I'm not all that stressed
about it because I usually open Adobe Reader by clicking a PDF file
anyway. It does seem as though they're finally starting to fix the
erratic memory issues of Adobe Reader plugin running inside Firefox.
