Adobe reader affects my screen!

After recently installing adobe reader, the monitor on my computer switches off after approximately 1.5 seconds of idle time. Can anybody help? Is it the reader thats affected my computer or is it likely to be something else?

 

I run a lenovo T500 with 4 gb ram.

 

Hope you guys can help!

 

Jock

    From where did you download Reader? I ask because your problem looks like a virus to me...

    Hi Jock,

     

    As Claudio Gonzalez says, it is probably a virus. If you have downloaded the reader from a site other than adobe then it is almost certain that the software has a virus.

    My advice to you is to completely delete it from your machine and re-install it from the adobe website.

     

    Hope this helps!

    Well then it means your computer has a virus. Where did you get your computer from?!! Hey, where?

    Sounds like a very reliable place to get a computer from.
