I recommend you uninstall reader. Use the Microsoft Installer Cleanup
tool to remove any evidence of any version of Reader, then re-install
the version of Reader you wish to use.
I'm pretty sure the MS Installer Cleanup did not show the Reader after uninstalling, but I'll try again. Do you recommend using the cleanup tool instead of Add/Remove Programs in this situation?
I recommend using the Control Panel first and the cleanup tool
afterwards to make sure nothing was left behind.
In the meantime, I've noticed that this may be a memory usage issue. AcroRd32.exe uses 65MB with no documents open. With a 420KB document open, it uses 119MB.
If I close enough non-Reader windows, then a document that wasn't showing then shows properly. There is technically no shortage of RAM, with Task Manager reporting 1.4GB available with other programs running. Windows sees 2.85GB total out of 4GB installed.
No luck so far, so I'm looking for pointers.
I uninstalled ALL Adobe programs and used the clean-up tool to remove Acrobat.com, then rebooted. Then I manually deleted program file folders and re-installed Reader.
It still has the same problem, and now another program is behaving similarly. I suspect memory management from the AMD X2 cpu driver or video card drivers.
