Let me see. You have removed Reader from your computer and won't re-install it. There is really no help you can get here. I suggest you contact your bank's IT department and have them repair your computer. I'm surprised a bank would let you change the software on their computer. Doing so is surely a security risk.
Thank you for your reply but you have mis understood my situation.
The PC is in fact my own.
The "Trusteer Rapport" software is provided by my bank to ensure a secure link when logging in to your various financial sites.
It was my decision to un-install Reader some years ago and use Foxit instead
Since I don't need the extra functionallity, why would I want to re-install it when Foxit will suffice?
Are you saying that Adobe, or people on this forum would not be prepared to help me to remove this damaged file simply because I don't wish to use "Reader"?
The file you list is not Adobe Reader, but the DLM plugin "getplus". Uninstall it via Add/Remove Programs, or remove it from the IE add-ons.
Hi ʇɐb ɹəuəllıʍ, Tracing what software this file belongs to is way too clever for a simpleton like me!
Thing is, I don't have the download manager you mention on my Add/Remove list, and it's also not listed in IE add-on's.
As you can see from the screenshot of the "General" tab of it's properties, it links to a cab file download:-
(http://) (platformdl.adobe.com/NOS/getPlusPlus/1 ) I hope the brackets have disabled the link!
I did follow it, and there was only a blank page and the usual download window with the request (save/run), no explanation of the content of the download or what it was for.
I actually downloaded it, and it was a .cab file but after scanning it with AVG and finding no problems, I decided to delete it as I didn't know what it was or what it might do!
By the way, ¡ǝןpuɐɥ ǝɥʇ ,uıʌoן
So, do I understand this correctly, the problem is resolved for you?
No, although it would appear you have identified the origin of the file, I still can't delete or remove it which was the purpose of my quest!
It seems I didn't copy all of the link that I refered to in my post of August 4th
Here it is in full:
As I said, I've not installed the ".cab" file download that it points to because there is absolutely no information as to what the file contains, or how it would benefit me.
Does anyone know the answers to the following questions, indeed, are they the right questions? lol
Would it for instance re-install the "GetPlus" software?
If so would that then repair or overwrite the damaged file I wish to remove?
Would I then be able to remove "GetPlus" via Add/Remove....cleanly?
That "getplus" DLM browser add-on should be automatically uninstalled after the download is complete. However, it seems that this is not always the case.
If it does not show in Add/Remove Programs, then I don't know how to manually uninstall it. It is possible that re-downloading the Reader may help in your case, but I really don't know that. (I never use the DLM; I always use the direct download links.)
