Problems with Reader

I have a problem with Adobe Reader.  Having tried to install v 8.1.0 I recieved message 1714 saying the older version of reader could not be removed and thus it could not be installed.  In the meantime I cannot read pdf files at all.

Re: Problems with Reader

Look under the Run the Microsoft Clean Up utility before you install Acrobat or Adobe Reader header at


DK50, your problems seem to stem from corrupted registry key(s).  While this should fix your issue in the short-term, bad registry values are never a good sign.  I would suggest you visit microsoft's site and search for a registry repair utilities for your operation system version such as (windows 2000).  As a rule of thumb I always recommend a complete fresh install every 2 - 3 years (at least) and of course only after backing everything up.  Hope this helps.  =)

How to install adobe reader 9

First, Download it if you don't already have it..

Click the install now, Follow the prompts with allow, yes, I agree, etc etc..

My only advice is that if it asks to install a google toolbar/etc. Uncheck the option.

The installation of adobe reader should be pretty straight forward.
