I am unable to download/open any pdf with reader x. I get a mesage afterwards about being unable to open in protected mode. Followed instructions and tried to disable under preferences, etc. It shows it as disabled. It must default back because when I try to load a pdf after doing this I get the same cannot open because of protected mode. I can not open anything
Thanks for your help.
Could you please let me know if you have Adobe Acrobat installed as well on your system?
Also, could you please try opening Adobe Reader and then opening the PDF by using the File > Open menu.
Can you launch Adobe Reader and choose Help > Repair Adobe Reader Installation.
