By chance did you just download IE 8. This version is known to cause problems with Vista. First I would suggest if you have to uninstall it and reinstall version 7. If that doesn't fix the problem try this:

Click Start, and then click Run.
* In the Open box, type regedit, and then click OK.
* Locate and then click the following registry key:
* HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders
* In the right pane of Registry Editor, double-click Common Administrative Tools.
* In the Value data box , type the following line, and then click OK:
* %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Start Menu\Programs\Administrative Tools
* On the File menu, click Exit to quit Registry Editor.
* Restart the computer.

Down load adobe reader 9.3, i have 6 user on this computer, but on one of the user her reader get this error 1606 could not access network location %APPDATA%. WHAT DO I DO ABOUT THIS. OH I try reinstalling...

The program is trying to access the network from the application data file. You can try to copy and paste a working application data file to replace the application data file that is errant.
You can try this by going into your application data file that works and copying the whole adobe reader folder and then switching back to her data file and replace her adobe folder with your working copy. Good luck.

You can also try to find out what "network location" is not being accessed for one user and is for another.

You can also try making her an administrator just long enough to make the program work correctly.

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.
