Out of the blue Reader would not open. Nothing. I would double click and nothing would launch. While viewing Task Manager I would see an Adobe exe in the list of running programs but then it would just disappear and reader didn't load.
I uninstalled and reinstalled but it still wouldn't launch. Then I right mouse clicked on the icon and went to properties - compatibility mode - and then selected run in Windows NT compatibility mode. I applied those settings and bammmm adobe reader works once again.
Exactly what is going on here?
I have been googling around and seen this problem pop up a lot and no solutions .... why does this work?
Windows XP SP3
