Scanning problem to .pdf

Before I scan to .pdf format I have to open Adobe, click help and do a repair of the installation. If I don't do this my text is only partially legible (large chunks have lines going through, much like a bar code you scan at the store). I've tried doing the repair, scanning/saving one set of documents and then scanning/saving another set right away. The first scanned/saved image is fine; the second is as described above. Should I just uninstall and reinstall the adobe? I have installed the most recent free version and checked for updates as recently as 3 days ago (none). Thanks in advance.

    No. I scan and send a lot of documents anywhere from 10-40 pages 2-4 times a week. If I were to use FoxIt Reader, how would it work if the person on the other end uses Adobe? Is a .pdf, a .pdf, a .pdf? If they need to be able to edit the document will it matter if I use FoxIt and they use Adobe?



    Thanks -

    Also, Do you have a FAX?
    If you do their are ways to FAX 2 EMAIL as PDF

    Remember all this is up to you if you like how adobe works I wouldn't change it
    your probably going to have to reinstall if you stick with adobe

    now that I double Check you would need FoxIt Creator for that which is free but would put Evaluation at the top of your file so that is up to you. But, yes a pdf is pdf no matter what program you use it is only their to tell that computer your sitting at what program to use.

    If you're using the free edition of adobe successfully for this long at that rate I would stick with it and do a complete uinstall from add/remove programs in the control panel and reinstall from adobe

    Some Scanners also can directly Convert Scans into PDF it depends on what scanner you're using where it say's save as type see if it has pdf

    If you do decide to reinstall adobe make sure you remove it using add/remove from the control panel

Keep geting low memory and blue screen


You need to add more memory for the low memory message.

For the blue screen problem you need to run the check disk utility.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc or a operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot from it. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with white letters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice the percentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run to completion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows. Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair when the options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recovery console and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

If you get it working you might try downloading and installing MalwareBytes to run a Quick Scan for viruses and infections.

Go to www.google.com and in the search box type: "Download cnet Malwarebytes" (without the quotes). Download and install malwarebytes from the sites download.cnet/malwarebytes. When the site opens up click on the Green Download button on the left. Do not click the Red Download button, that's junk. When it finishes installing the Gui Interface will open up with an offer to Accept a Trial Version or Decline. CLICK DECLINE you want the totally free version. Run a QUICK SCAN. As it scans, if it finds infections the number will be in red. When it finishes scanning, click SHOW RESULTS. A notepad text document will open up showing you the results. You can close the text document and go back to the Gui Interface where you will click REMOVE SELECTED RESULTS. The objects will already be selected for you. When it finishes removing the objects click ok and it will sometimes reboot your machine.

New computer very slow


LOL, If it's new it's probably bloated with all the junky software that you don't need or want.

Scan Docs in pdf


Unless you have Adobe Pro, there's another way to accomplish this task. Scan the document into Word or Open Office Writer (open office is a free download) Once the document is scanned, Click on File and select Publish to PDF.

How do I convert my PDF files to JPG files? These are pictures.


lacking the expensive adobe acrobat (not the reader) .. then they make it hard to do .. but here is a simple way .. display the photo you want as large as possible on the screen ... then push the "PRN SCR" button (print screen) .. now an image of the whole screen is in the "copy buffer" (clipboard) .. now open any photo editor (if you dont have one you can use "microsoft Paint" , that comes with windows) click on "paste" now you have that screen image as a picture ... you can use the magnifier to display the image bigger or smaller (alt click makes it smaller) .. then in paint you select the portion of the picture you want to keep (selection tools) then click on "crop" now save that as a JPG or other file format that is supported .. now you have a JPG of the image that was in the PDF ... the resolution of the final result depends on how big you were able to make the object before you pushed "PRN SCR" it will look just like what you see on the screen ... you can also paste into Microsoft Word if you have that .. Gimp is a really nice Free photo editor if you are willing to learn a lot .. it will take a while to get into but is worth while .. does a nice job for things like this ..

I just recently purchase a Brother Printer - MFC-685CW and I have a Dell PC. There is a scanning feature and no instructions. Could you please send me the scanning instructions via e-mail -...


Hi Denise, I can't send you the instructions but if you log into Brother I presume www.brother.com or www.brother.co.uk they'll have them, possibly pdf format so make sure you have Adobe acrobat installed.
God Luck!

Encoded email


Hi Charlie,

Yes, you cannot just open a .pdf file (Adobe format) by opening it as a text file. It will look like a bunch of strange characters if you try to open it on Notepad or Word.

Did you reboot your computer after installing Adobe Acrobat Reader? After installation any .pdf files will be opened automatically by Adobe Reader, but only after your computer is restarted.

Also, if you look in your email on the list of files attached, the file should have a name ending in .pdf. That's how the system recognizes it as an Adobe Acrobat file. If it doesn't have the correct extension, you'll need to save it and change the file type. The way you do that depends on which Windows you have an if you're hiding the extension type (which is the default setting).

Worstcase, you can just have your friend open it and print it for you.

By the way, I wish you hadn't rated my answer as "Inappropriate". I got a score of 40/100 instead of 70/100 for a "Thanks for Trying"... :-( Anyway, hope that helps you out.

Unable to read Adobe Reader attachments


If you are saying that you can't read .pdf files? Then go to Adobe.com and click the "get adobe reader" button to download the latest free version.

Good luck.
