What happens when you start Adobe Reader?
Nothing. I left-click on Adobe Reader 9 (to run it), and nothing happens. I right-click on Adobe Reader 9, left-click on "Run," and
nothing happens. I clicked on the Adobe Reader 9 Installer (folder). There are 5 files in the foilder. One is "Adobe Bootstrapper for
Single Installation" (337Kb), anda somewthing appears to go through a process of "installing" Adobe 9. Afterwards...nothing (still)
happens. The other icon is "AcroRead Windows Installer Package" (3.88Mb). "Running" that produces the same screen displays
as the Bootstrapper...and the same results. Nothing happens. Of the remaining files in the folder, two are text files and one is a
104 Mb data (Cabinet) file. I can still display .pdf files from on-line sources, e.g., our Internal Revenue Service. I'm just unable to
open previously saved .pdf files. I saved a W-4 form. I closed all other applications, went to the file, left-clicked on it to open it and...
I performed a complete uninstall (my 4th one). I installed FOXIT, a free ".pdf"
reader. Didn't do anything else. Works great! Must've been something wrong with Adobe.
Thanx for listening.
