I am on an Asus N series computer. I put on the Adobe Reader on my computer because I like it better then what was installed. Everytime I open the program, it loads and then disappears. I can't get it to stay open to use it. I am using Windows 7 home Premium x64. Please tell me how to get this program to work? I have installed and uninstalled this to try to get it to work.
Can you open Adobe Reader by itself? If so, try to disable Protected Mode (Edit | Preferences | Security (Advanced)).
If not, you may need to change the setting in the registry; do you know how to use regedit?
The value that needs to be changed is HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\11.0\privileged\bProtectedMode from 1 to 0.
Be sure you make a registry backup or System Restore Point before editing the registry. If you are unsure how to proceed, I can make a little procedure for you to change that value.
I actually already have that little procedure (.reg file); see attachment.
Download the attachment to your disk, then double click on the protected.reg file. I still recommend to create a System Restore Point before proceeding.
