    Unable to open PDF - not a valid windows image


      Every time I start up my computer or try to open Adobe Reader 9 from my desktop I receive the following message: AcroRd32.exe

      The application or DLL C:\WINDOWS\WinSxS\x86_Microsoft.VC80.CRT_1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b_8.0.50727.3053_x-ww_b80fa8ca\MS VCP80.dll is not a valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette.


      It happened after I downloaded some windows automatic updates and a recent update from Adobe.


      I have tried de-installing and reinstalling Adobe Reader twice.


      I have Windows XP home and use Mozilla Firefox.


      Please could someone help me with this problem as I haven't been able to contact Adobe for techincal support because 'I have not registered my product' and when I try to it still doesn't register.


      Thank you
