Adobe Reader is free, and there is no "trial" for Adobe Reader. Maybe you had Acrobat preinstalled? Or downloaded the update for Acrobat?
Tell us what version of Adobe Reader you want; the English version 9.1 for Windows can be downloaded from http://download.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/win/9.x/9.1/enu/AdbeRdr910_en_US.exe
I don't mean to chime in. I did downloaded the file from your hyperlink for 9.1. The size is 25 MB, the size from the adobe reader download is 41 MB. Is your link without air or acrobat? I ask because I have 9.0 installed and removed air and acrobat. Not sure if I should install the 41 MB and remove again or go with your link.
Sorry for omitting that information; yes, this is the installer without AIR and Acrobat.com - I recommend that you use this download (above) if you don't want the additional tools.
The full installer can be downloaded from http://download.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/win/9.x/9.1/enu/AdbeRdr910_en_US_Std.exe (41MB).

Maybe it was just the Reader. I don't remember. I just know we at least need the Reader in order for my husband to view his direct deposit info online. And there are several documents I need to view that are .pdf
Thanks for the download link....I don't know what was going on, I just know we had a link on our desktop to continue or restart a download and then I would get a pop-up saying it'd cost me like after 40 days.
....not to sound like a complete idiot, but what is AIR? Obviously Adobe related... but never seen that acronym before.
Adobe AIR is a new runtime that is required by some online applications (like Acrobat.com?); see http://www.adobe.com/products/air/
If you encounter such an application, it will probably automatically install the runtime, so you do not really need to bother about it.
Thank you, Pwillener, I installed only Adobe Reader version 9.1 from your link. Then, I removed the Adobe Air/Acrobat from the 9.0 version. Everything seems to be working. Now I have just the Reader.
Even after many years of computering, these upgrades make me nervous when installing.
