2. Click the Cross-Platform icon on the left of the Preferences dialog box.
3. Select Never in the Convert text files to Macintosh format section, then click OK.

Hello
Just update your reader version to Adobe 10.1.1. It is now on air, and is for free. Get into by google search. You can see the download. It cannot be saved to anywhere, but can be installed by cliking "Run". Will take about half an hour to finish. The installation wizard is there to help you. It will replace your present Adobe-8 by Adobe-10.1.1
I've downloded the same a few while ago. Seems to be very very good than Adobe-9, I was using before. Check it. You will like it and can work with no more problems. OK.

Every time I need Adobe Reader it says: "Invalid plugin detected. Adobe reader will quit." How can I fix this?


Go to Control Panel - Add Remove programs and remove Acrobat Reader. Then reboot your computer and open Internet Explorer and Google search the latest version of Acrobat Reader (version 9), then download and install it.

I keep getting messages ..could not find acrobat External windows handler; . brand is e machines ..error messages,,


Hi Kate1958. I found this for you. Do one or more of the following solutions:
Solution 1: Remove all versions of Acrobat or Reader, and then reinstall one version.
If multiple versions of Acrobat or Reader are installed on the system, remove all versions and then install only one version. See the documentation included with Windows for information about removing programs.
Note: If you need to have multiple versions of an Acrobat product installed, remove all versions and then reinstall them starting with the earliest, installing the latest version last.
Solution 2: Start Acrobat or Reader, and then open the PDF file in the web browser.
If an error occurs when you try to start Acrobat or Reader, refer to Related Documents below, or search the Adobe Support Knowledgebase:
-- If you use Acrobat, go to www.adobe.com/support/products/acrobat.html .
-- If you use Reader, go to www.adobe.com/support/products/acrreader.html .
Solution 3: Make sure that the External Window Handler file (ewh32.api) is in the Plug-ins folder.
If this file is missing, reinstall Acrobat or Adobe Reader.
The default location of the Plug-ins folder is:
-- For Acrobat: Program FilesAdobeAcrobat [version]Acrobat
-- For Reader: Program FilesAdobeAcrobat [version]Reader
Solution 4: Disable Web Browser Integration.
Disable Web Browser Integration so that PDF files open directly in Acrobat or Reader instead of in the web browser.
To disable Web Browser Integration in Acrobat 6.0.x -7.0.x or Reader 6.0.x -7.0.x:
1. Open Acrobat or Reader.
2. Choose Edit > Preferences > Internet.
3. Deselect Display PDF in Browser.
4. Click OK.
To disable Web Browser Integration in Acrobat 5.x or Acrobat Reader 5.x:
1. Open Acrobat or Acrobat Reader.
2. Choose Edit > Preferences > General.
3. Click Options in the list in the Preferences dialog box.
4. Deselect Display PDF in Browser.
5. Click OK.
To disable Web Browser Integration in Acrobat 4.x or Acrobat Reader 4.x:
1. Open Acrobat or Acrobat Reader.
2. Choose File > Preferences > General.
3. Deselect Web Browser Integration in the General Preferences dialog box.
4. Click OK.
I hope this helps. Please dont forget to rate and provide positive feedback for our fast-free support today. Thank you :D

Aobe won't let me use user guide


What version is the Adobe Acrobat Reader on your computer? If it is version 9 and you are trying to see the user guide from within a browser window (like Internet Explorer), you will have problems because of a known issue with Adobe Acrobat Reader 9. If the above is true, you will need to uninstall Adobe Acrobat Reader 9 and install Adobe Acrobat Reader version 8.1.3
(Click Here) to download for version 8.1.3. If you are unsure how th uninstall version 9 and install version 8.1.3, please post a response to this an I will give you details based on your operating system.
