    Good luck getting any answers here.  I just want to warn you - there is a virus that you can get if you clicked on an icon on your desktop that looked like any of the Adobe icons.  This virus asks you to download the latest Adobe updates.  Of course what you download is a virus. 

     

    I have tried to learn if there are any updates to Adobe Reader because that is the icon that recently appeared in my tray.  I downloaded a virus a few months ago so I no longer download anything from Adobe unless I come directly to their website.  As far as I can tell there is no Reader upgrade.  I would suggest running Microsoft Security Essentials to check your computer and hope you didn't download a virus.  But don't expect to get any answers here.  You might contact Microsoft help and allow one of them to look at your computer and they can help you if you did get a virus.

    Please let me know the following:

    1. Which OS are you working on.

    2. Which version of Adobe Reader are you using?

    3. What is the operation that you are performing, that is causing the error message to be displayed?

    Have you tried using Dreamweaver on your phone, it works really well - no error reports!

    Have you tried temporarily turning off your Antivirus and checked if it solves the issue?

    Also, see is repairing the installation from the control panel helps.
