When I first purchased my new pc, regrettably, I was given Windows Vista. There have been a lot of problems. Of late, Adobe Reader gives me an error message when I try to open a downloaded file. I uninstalled and reinstalled Adobe Reader but with no success. Could this be a Vista security issue? I can download and read the file on my work computer which used Windows XP. Also, this problem getting an error message opening and reading a file just recently occurred. I haven't made any changes to my system except automatic program updates. Can you help me?
I also am experiencing Adobe 8 (8.1.2)problems. I have Vista version SP1. When I click on the "properties" or "preferences" link in the printer window when attempting to print a PDF Adobe crashes. I contacted Adobe twice to no avail. If anyone has any ideas on how to resolve this I'd appreciate hearing. John L.
I stumbled on a solution: Download the PDF file and instead of saying yes to open the file (because you know you'll get the error message), simply go to where you saved the file (i.e. AOL downloads) and open it there. I have no idea why I suddenly cannot open PDF files but at least I found a way to still get my information. Hope this helps.
