Adobe Acrobat 8.1 will not finish the install

I have attempted to download and install the free version of Acrobat Reader 8.1 5 times now and 5 times I have to un install it and try again. That same problems happens each time and that is:
It will complete the download and then begin the install but when it gets to the part about " accepting or denying" the license agreement I can do neither. No matter which of these options I click on I get a screen which tells me " the licensing has been denied, this program will now quit.
I cannot now even use the older version of reader which was on my computer. I do use the Mozilla browser but I did follow the Adobe instructions for downloading using Mozilla. I printed those up and followed them exactly. I am at a loss as to what to try next. I really NEED to be able to have a format for reading and using PDF files. Any ideas on what I can try next???

    Thanks for trying to come up with a solution, but I have already tried this and it too did not work. I also go ONLY to the Adobe site not wanting to try a third party download but at this point I am going to give that a try as nothing else has worked.

    Thanks for the tip and the web site addy. I will give that a try. I am using Windows X P , have a Pentium 2 processor and yes all my virus fighters are current. I also did a complete PC clean up and used the fix wizard too just to be sure all was a ok before downloading.
    As for the online scanners no I didn't because until now I did not have any web sites for them. Now, thanks to you I do and will certainly give them a try too.

    I have come to the conclusion that the problem I was having installing the Acrobat Reader was due to a flaw in the new 8.1 edition and NOT my computer. I went back and downloaded the 7.0 version. It downloaded and installed completely without a hitch!! Thanks to all who have tried to help. I think right now someone should spread the word about version 8.1 so that someone else doesn't have the same problems I did

Try using the following link to download adobe reader. Be sure to put in the correct operating system. There is a chance you are picking up an incorrect version of adobe reader that you are attempting to load.

    This is the adobe site ( for other versions (some non current) of the software -- you can choose a specific version off of this site offering you the opportunity to backaway from 8.1 to another version that might work -- it takes into account OS and assures the version is compatible.

    What Operating System are you running?

    Have you run a virus scanner lately? Is it current?

    Did you get a second opinion using an online scanner like Panda, Trend Micro, Bitdefender or F-secure?

    Yea -- from your first note working is better than not working.

    Good job.

How do i download Adobe Acrobat x Standard for Free?

Acrobat reader is free. Acrobat pro is not free.
There are other free programs to create PDF's. Really, Adobe is offering the readers for all systems for free. Be aware sometimes PDF files are password protected. You even can't read them with acrobat reader, if you don't have the password. Just visit the Adobe website to download a free version for your system.
Now you can get the 11 version here:

Ensure that you only have one version of Adobe Acrobat installed. I've found that often enough, if Reader and the full version of Acrobat are installed at the same time, it can cause problems like these.

If that is the case, try uninstalling Reader, so that only Acrobat Standard remains.

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 .
-- If you use Reader, go to .
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

Cannot use reader 8.0,cannot remove it or install 9.0

oddly enough, you may find that updating the version 8.0 you have to 8.x will then allow you to remove it (or it will work correctly) can you open the reader manually in the programs list? if so open it, then go to help and check for updates. apply the updates. If they work you should be in good shape.
