Question about Adobe Acrobat 7.0 for PC
I cannot open any programs because an adobe error message pops up saying adobe reader could not open file because it is not a supported file type or has been damaged.
In Internet Explorer, when you click on a link to a pdf file,
you get the error message “Adobe Reader could not open ‘filename.fdf’ because it is either not a supported file type or because the file has been corrupted.”
This error is due to an issue with Adobe Acrobat viewing PDF files in a web browser.
Try the following:
1. Open Internet Explorer, go to Tools -> Internet Options and on the General tab to erase all temporary files, cookies and history data.
2. Under Internet Explorer -> Tools -> Internet Options, on the General tab click on Settings and make sure you select the option “Automatically” for checking for newer versions of the stored pages. Then attempt to open the PDC file again.
3. If solutions 1 and 2 do not work then uninstall Adobe Acrobat, then reinstall it again.
It seems that Acrobat 6 is more prone to this error so upgrading to Acrobat 7 may solve the problem.
All d best.
Any furthur help feel free to ask me again i will be more than happy to assist you.

Uninstall Adobe reader and download it again from http://www.adobe.com/support/ if that is not where you got it the first time. Those icons and messages all indicate a virus or malware so go to Windows update and ensure that you have their free malware removal toll installed and do a full system virus scan. Steve

It is possible that somewhere along the line adobe reader became conflicted with an update from something else ect.
First thing you should try is uninstalling adobe reader completely in add/remove programs. Then Install the latest version of adobe reader.
This should put an end to the error messages and restore functionality to normal.
