    Downloading Adobe on a Dell--Open Office software?

    griffkm

      I have downloaded Adobe Reader on my Dell Inspiron N5010 laptop (Windows 7 operating system, 3 GB RAM, Intel Pentium Processor) on three separate occasions, hoping I will be able to use it to view PDF documents.  This would help me enormously in viewing time-sensitive documents.  Each of the downloads have failed. The predominant issue I can think of is that I do not have Microsoft Office on my laptop--instead I have OpenOffice, which may be the problem.  Each time, when I attempt to open PDF files, they convert to WordPad and appear as gibberish.  Is there a solution to this, apart from installing the various Microsoft Office programs?

       

      Thank you for your feedback.
