Can anyone reccommend a lightweight bloat free PDF viewer ? I want to try and avoid installing loads of different Adobe bloat on this system but I just tried to open a file and realised I had nothing to view it with lol !

Not sure how lightweight it is, but I prefer Foxit Reader over Adobe.

I use Foxit as well, good balance of features and also has a plugin for firefox which is what sold it for me over Sumatra.

I used foxit, reinstalled windows and now use sumatra. Really, either works, though Sumatra is lighter and more about the document than the program I think.

I use IrfanView with the plug-ins and Ghostscript to read PDFs. It works great!

Just install everything from the links and then open your PDF with Irfanview.

I've always just used Adobe reader, never felt the need to do otherwise? Mine seem to just open inside Google Chrome nice and conveniently.

Evince is really lightweight and nice. No ads either (it's open source). It's bundled with a lot of Linux distros (there's a Windows version too, of course).
