Windows 7 machine.


This error just started occurring yesterday to me; the fatal error message box appears with the subject message

1) if I try to start the Adobe Reader application, or

2) try to open *any* PDF.


I've tried the following remedies:


1) Uninstalling Reader XI, reinstalling Reader XI, then restarting the computer.


2) Control Panel-->Programs-->Programs and Features-->rt click Adobe Reader XI-->Change; after it's finished, restart computer.


These had zero effect; what are other suggestions?
