I'm pretty sure the solution you're looking for is here: http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/404/kb404082.html
If that isn't correct, then you need to dump all of the Adobe Reader and Acrobat folders from
- com.adobe.Reader.plist, and
wherever you find them in the HD\Library\Preferences or User\Library\Preferences folders.
Once you've done that, empty the trash, and install Reader 9.3.1.
Thank you for great advice. I followed your instructions and it worked perfectly. I have Adobe Reader v9 open and working.
My adobe reader does not start (not when I am trying to open a pdf file nor when I just try to open AcroRd32.exe)
I got a strange update this morning and then it stopped working. I could not remove this update using add/remove programs in windows (I am using windows XP). So I removed adobe reader in reinstalled it via the adobe website. But still it does not work. I do not even get an error, just nothing happens when i try to open reader.
(When i removed adobe reader the strange update part also disappeared in add/remove programs, so I assumed it was gone too)
Is there anything I can do to make it work again?
Thanks for the help!
