Adobe Reader Problems

It seems that some folks are having troubles installing Adobe Reader’s newest upgrade to version 9.

It appears that there can be a conflict depending on the operating system you are using:  Windows 98, XP (with Service Pak 2 or 3), Vista, MAC, Linux etc.

The Adobe 9 download page   http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2_allversions.html allows you to choose the appropriate operating system.

I have also heard that your browser may confuse Adobe 9 as well…..If, for instance, you are using Firefox, Safari or Opera.   I dont know if this is so but will keep an eye peeled for information.  (How the heck did the phrase “keep an eye peeled” come about?!)

Foxit Software also offers a Free PDF reader.  Some of you may find you like it better than Adobe Reader.  http://www.foxitsoftware.com/pdf/rd_intro.php

My suggestion is to stay with version 8.1 for now.  🙂

Please let us know if you hear of any more difficulties or solutions.

Cheers, Ann

  1. Would you give me a hand with this:
    Can´t upgrade or unsinstall Adobe Reader because of
    THIS POP UP: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\OptionalComponents\MSFS

    For worse, I found out it might get into banking transactions, really?
    tks for time and attention

  2. Check out Adobe’s instructions at http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/400/kb400769.html if you’re using v.8 of the Reader.
    Or try this MS tool for Windows http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301.
