I have Adobe Reader X installed, but no pdf's will open.

The problem seemed to start after installing the app needed to watch the Olympics.  That app was uninstalled.  Uninstalling & reinstalling Reader does not seem to help.  Any suggestions?  I get no error.  Reader simply does not respond at all.

    What is your operating system & version?


    What is your Reader version?


    I do not quite get the "watch the Olympics" part; do you mean Flash Player?

    I do not quite understand the connection between Flash Player and Adobe Reader; they are entirely different programs.




    When the answer of any of these questions is no, then please explain what exactly happens instead?


    P.S. if you have problems with online PDFs, what is the web browser you use?

    After you try opening Adobe Reader, can you open Task Manager (tab Processes) and see if there are any AcroRd32.exe processes running?


    If there are multiple, kill them all, then try to open Reader again.
