    Opening ReaderX causes "This program wants to make changes to your computer" warning.


      I'm using Windows7.


      Previous Adobe Reader versions worked fine on this computer; and when I first updated to Adobe Reader X it seemed to run correctly, until recently. Now everytime I try to open a .pdf file or the Reader X application, the screen goes black briefly and a "User Account Control" warning box pops-up with the message, "This program wants to make changes to your computer."


      I have uninstalled Reader X, downloaded new install file from Adobe.com and re-installed the program, but it still does this everytime. I've designated Reader as the default program for .pdf files.


      Can anyone tell me what's causing this to happen and/or what I can do to remedy the problem?
