      Hi, please help me

       

      I want delete the Digital ID

       

      when I open the menu "Advanced"----"Security Settings"

       

      in the dialoge I chose Digital IDs, then Windows Digital IDs

       

      there is a list and I can see many iterms of digital IDs

       

      I want delete each of that

       

      when I chose one of them and click the button "Remove ID"

       

      the softeware tell me that "Removing a digital ID is only permitted if the ID was created by Adobe reader or acrobat version 8.0 or later "

       

       

      what should I do ?

          You can delete only self-signed digital IDs that you created in Acrobat.

            Hi Koalar2010why,

             

            I know it's been a long time since you posted your question, but if you are still interested here is what you need to do.

             

            • Launch Internet Explorer
            • Select Tools > Internet Options (you can get to Tools either from the menu, the toolbar button or Alt+X)
            • Select the Content tab on the Internet Options dialog
            • Click the Certificates button in the middle of the Contents panel
            • Select the Personal tab on the Certificates dialog (it's usually selected by default)
            • --Before continuing I'd recommend exporting the digital IDs to a file in case you ever need to get an old one back again)--
            • Highlight one or more digital ID(s) and then click the Remove button

             

            The next time you launch Acrobat and go back to the Security Settings dialog the digital IDs will be gone.
