How do I change PDF's in Reader X to READ ONLY for viewing by someone other than myself?

I just upgraded to Adobe Reader X. It changed my PDFs so they can be altered by readers other than myself.

How do I change it so that the files are exported in READER ONLY Mode?

Adobe Reader can not edit a PDF. Only filling form fields and adding comments is available.

You can add security to the PDF to prevent form filling, commenting, and editing by Adobe Reader and Acrobat user. Not all 3rd party PDF viewing/creating products always respect Adobe's PDF security.
