I had Adobe 9.0 installed but I am no longer able to open pdf files. I uninstalled 9.0 and tried to install Adobe 10.0 but am blocked from downloading. I switched from Firefox to Explorer but same thing happened. I think it wants me to install ActiveX Control but I am not familiar with any of this and I'm not being given the option to click/select anything to proceed. Need help---have been going around in circles for the past 2 hours!!
You can try below link to download Reader X build which will install in UI mode.
you need to install Reader X manually after the file has been downloaded completely.
