    I used LapLInk's PCMover to transfer Adobe Acrobat Standard v8.0 to my new computer. I'm now getting the "Error 1606: can't locate network startup" and was told by PCMover that I have to undue the entire migration, install the software, then redo the migration from old computer to new.

With many thanks to rlessmue on CNET forum... this is what worked for me (for both Acrobat Standard 8.0 & Photoshop CS2):
...I found an easier fix for "Error 1606" by rlessmue - 9/12/08 11:44 AM In reply to: Your suggestion worked! by jarjar467-news
Receiving "Error 1606: Could not access network location Startup"
To fix, Adobe seems to be having a conflict with Microsoft Office.
NO need to remove Microsoft Office (if you are having problems with install, upgrade or removal)!
Follow these steps:
1) Open Regedit, (Start -> Run -> (type in) regedit
2) Inside Regedit go to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> SOFTWARE -> Microsoft -> Office
3) Right click on "10.0" folder and select "Export" (and save a copy to your desktop).
(You can do this for the other number folders (like 9.0, 11.0, 12.0) if you want to be sure).
4) Verify that the file(s) have been put on your desktop.
5) Next, delete the folder "10.0" (or the folders you exported) from with in the registry (right-click - delete, confirm)
6) Install, upgrade or remove Adobe Acrobat 8.0...when done...
7) Go to the desktop and click twice on the "10.0" file (and each of the other files) and add back to the registry!
8) You should verify that MS Office products still work, and Acrobat should work too! That's it!

No Adobe programs will work on my computer. They either say it has stopped working or I get error message 1606. I need help!

If its the reader or the flash I would go to the control panel and uninstall adobe reader and or flash and reinstall only from adobe's web page. If you have high speed the download is pretty fast anyway.
