Okay, time to start from scratch:

  • Back up your data
  • Reinstall your OS
  • Install AVG or Avira Antivirus
  • Install Spyware Terminator
  • Install Spyware Blaster
  • Install Adobe Reader or Foxit Reader
  • Install Comodo Internet Security Suite
With that base you can then install what you want and should end up with a responsive system. Takes a few hours, but the overall benefits are worth it.

There's a discussion of this problem on Adobe's forum at
http://forums.adobe.com/thread/771034.
Maybe some of the ideas there will help.

Have you tried Foxit Reader? It's for .pdf files and I've had very good luck with it. Download it for free:

I access my school email account and try to download PDF files and a message comes up that there are fcp protocol not associated with the files. Hence I can not read the files. What do I do?


You need to have a PDF reader installed if you don't already. You can use Adobe Reader from:
http://get.adobe.com/reader/

Or my favorite is Foxit Reader from:
http://www.foxitsoftware.com/downloads/

But the error message you are getting, maybe it refers to FTP. For File Transfer Protocol, an easy to use program is FileZilla. You can get that here:

Good luck!

I get a Runtime error message constantly then a crash. can't open my pdf files.Using A Reader X


If your only intention is to open .pdf files and not Adobe Reader X problem, then there is a easy solution to open the .pdf files. You can use Foxit Reader or Nitro PDF Viewer as a PDF decoding software, These can give you the same results ( in some cases, more than you want!!!) with respect to Adobe Reader X. Amongst these PDF viewer, I recommend you to use Foxit Reader, as this is very much lightweight with respect to Adobe Reader (About 14 times smaller) and handy.

You can download these PDF readers by clicking over the following links:
And if you still want to use Adobe Reader X, then you should uninstall it and try re-installing it again, because it may be the problem of file corruption or improper installation of Adobe Reader.

Hope this helps,

I have another software program that allows me to read in PDF files. This worked great in Adobe 9 but once I upgraded to Adobe Reader X 10.0.1 I can no longer see the PDF files when browsing the directory...


Im a little confused by your wording but I think you mean that Adobe Reader 10 doesn't recognize the file as a PDF or compatible file format, try right clicking on the literal file and open with Adobe Reader, or left click on the name once, and then change the ending of the file to .pdf, hope this helps.

Cannot open attachments from emails.


Hi There.
If you can not open attached documents it might be because programs are missing on your computer.
As an example:
for a file xxx.PDF you need a PDF reader installed eg. Adobe Reader.
Can be found here: http://www.adobe.com/downloads/
Download Adobe Reader and install it and you can read PDF files.
If the document is a Microsoft Office document you nee the whole Microsoft Office Package - but this package is not free - must by it.

As an alternative to the Microsoft program you can use Open Office.
Can be found here: www.openoffice.org
This program is compatible to Microsoft Office and it is free to use.

Other type of files need other programs etc.

A try download a particular pdf file but each time after i download it, i get this reply when i try open it 'pdf file damaged and cannot be repaired' what exactly is d cause?


May be the file is actually damaged, or may be your PDF Reader is actually damaged.
First try to download the PDF file from different source(s) and then try opening that file.
If it doesn't work, go for different PDF Readers. Like you may try the Adobe Reader or Foxit Reader to open that file.

1. Download Adobe Reader 10.0 here
2. Download Foxit Reader 4.3 here

Help with PDF Documents Some documents on Maine.gov are provided in PDF format. In order to view or print PDF documents, you need the free Adobe Reader. Generally, you will find an alternative format is also provided for the document, such as Microsoft Word, HTML, or plain text. If you cannot access a document in PDF format and there is no alternative version, please contact the agency or contact the Maine.gov webmaster for assistance.

We've provided solutions for some common PDF issues below.
General Tips: Problem 1: Blank Page in Browser You have selected to download a file and you receive a blank page with a "Done" message at the bottom of the browser. This may be because you do not have enough space in your temporary internet file folder to complete the download.
Solution: Internet Explorer: Tools> Internet Options> Temporary Internet Files> select Delete Files
Netscape: Edit> Preferences> Under Category on the left Advanced> Cache> click Clear Memory Cache
Problem 2: Blank Page "%PDF" You received an error message containing "% PDF" or you have received a blank page while trying to download. This is due to a problem with your web browser not opening .pdf documents correctly.
Solution: Adobe Acrobat Reader 5.0: Edit> Preferences> General> Options> Web Browser Options> make sure the Display PDF in Browser box is not checked.
Adobe Acrobat Reader 6.0 and newer: Edit > Preferences > Internet > make sure the Display PDF in Browser box is not checked.
Problem 3: "Error Locating Object Handler" You receive an error message that says "Error Locating Object Handler" while trying to download a document. This is because there is a dependency with a plug-in for Adobe Acrobat while using Internet Explorer.
Solution: Please go to the following website for detailed instructions: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;q262213
Problem 4: Unable to Print You have successfully downloaded the pdf, can view it on your computer screen but are unable to print. This is due to a post script error with your printer.

I have problem opening adobe pdf files. I have adobe 9 and 9.3 but does not open adobe files. It asks for adobe 4 and 7 or 8. I tried to download adobe 4,7 or 8. It says I have that version on my computer....


try the steps below:
1. Right-Click on the PDF file.
2. Select Properties
3. On the General tab,
3.1. Check the Opens with: if its set to Adobe Reader
If not, click the Change button and select Adobe Reader

If the same thing happens, Uninstall all Adobe Reader installed on your computer. It is an indication that the installation is corrupted that's why it is not being detected.

I suggest that you can try to use Foxit PDF Reader instead which for me I find very convenient in opening PDF files.

Please let me know if the following has been helpful.
