      Give up unistall adobe reader and go to http://www.foxitsoftware.com/pdf/reader/ for a solid solution for .PDF within minutes and NO worries of security attacks via adobe holes/security flaws.

       

      I have given up...adobe do nothing microsoft do nothing

      i have got rid of adobe and gone to foxit for a free reader with zero probelms download here http://www.foxitsoftware.com/pdf/reader/

      Suggest you all do the same for reader problems rather than waste your leisure/working time trying to unravel this probelm with no help or even acknowledgement in any of these forums from adobe..disgusted. stamp your feet and migrate..enough is enough.this has been going on for months.

          Thank you, but no thank you!  I installed that Foxit Reader once, and it installed spyware (Ask toolbar) on my system.  There was a prechecked checkbox for that toolbar, which I unchecked, but it installed it anyway!

           

          Very sneaky!

           

          I have used Acrobat Reader | Adobe Reader since version 4, and I never had any problem with it.

            Nice spam, but the fact is that if you didn't have a bunch of junk on your system that probably keeps a lot of other software from working right as well, your Adobe Reader would work just fine.

             

            I've used Adobe Reader since version 4, on Windows and Mac, and have never had a problem with it in either format.
