I have tried repeatedly to install Adobe reader 10.1. I have Windows 7 64 bit OS. I use Internet Explorer 8 or Mozilla Firefox. I have enabled scripting in the security section as well as the intranet section of my tools>advanced settings. I have also changed the security settings to medium or medium low. I have disabled my AVG Security and do not have Windows Security enabled at all. I also downloaded from the "direct" download site.
Here are 6 screenshots of the steps I took and the results. If someone could tell me the solution to this, it would be greatly appreciated.
You have not completely disabled AVG, it is there on your screen. I have found that AVG is more trouble than it is worth. However, I doubt that is the issue. Try downloading from the Adobe ftp site. The problem is that your download timed out. You never got to the install stage.
Download the file, then try installing with AVG not running at all.
I disabled AVG like I have a dozen times before, but this time I save your link and then installed it, instead of the direct link on Adobe website link. This link worked!!! Thanks very much for your help!!! Happy New Year!
