Does Windows 7 contain it's own PDF reader?

Does Windows 7 contain it's own PDF Reader or do I need to install Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Reader to view PDF files?
Answer
Answer

No, and there is a lot of issues with Adobe Reader of late. I recommend this PDF reader that is more lightweight and more Windows friendly than Adobe.

Foxit Reader
