I recently formatted and reinstalled Windows XP on a family members computer. It's an older Dell machine, Dimension 4700, if I recall.
Everything installed fine including Officer 2007 and Bitdefender 2011 virus protection however when I go to install Adobe Reader the install hangs at about 50% and never moves again. The Adobe downloader installed fine and downloaded the app but when it goes to isntall it consistently hangs at about the same spot.
I downloaded Firefox 3.6 and tried to install via that but had the same result.
Anyone have any ideas?
Can you please let me know, which version of Adobe Reader are you trying to install on your system?
If you are trying to install Adobe Reader 9.3.4 (Which is the latest released version for Reader), can you try and install the same from the following location:
Hope this works.
