    Adobe has security issues on different service packs,

    Have you emailled adobe to ask them for a solution?

    I have had ADOBE issues on one of my ACER Aspires a while ago,and I came to the assumption that the quickest and best solution was to wipe the drive and reinstall after saving all my important stuff first,that pop up is cyclic and so annoying and I didnt want to chance a viruss corrupting any of my stuff,

    if you need help with the reinstall check my tips and tricks link

Trying to open attachments using Adobe Acrobat Reader but keep getting error message { Adobe Acrobat Reader has stopped working ,try again later 523:523 } any one with any solutions gladly recieved.

One of the easies ways to fix this problem is to delete the adobe reader. Also remove from registry, if you do not know how to do that, stay away from it. Restart your computer and then reinstall the adobe reader, allow updates. Be careful, if your not then you'll also get the AVG tool bar installed. Read every install page and uncheck all other downloads EXCEPT auto upgrades. Hope it helps

I need an owner's manual for my new computer HP Pavilion dm4-2165dx. The product number for the computer is QE375UA#ABA. I have tried downloading it and run into problems with acrobat reader ...

Hi Julie: Manuals for the HP Pavilion dm4-2165dx Entertainment Notebook PC are available from the HP website.

This is not an uncommon problem; have experienced similar problems after running updates of Adobe Reader.

If you are having problams with Adobe Reader opening your documents check to see if you have the most current version. Adobe Reader X is now available on the Adobe website. The HP webpage above has a link to the Adobe download site. If you have had problems after installing the most current version, it is recommended you uninstall Adobe Reader from your computer and then download and install a fresh copy of Adobe Reader X.

Please give an new updated install of Adobe Reader a try. If this does not resolve your problem, please reply with any additional details and will see if I can provide further direction.

Thank you for using FixYa!

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.

I'm currently trying to install my Canon IXUS 115 HS onto my laptop but the installation keeps failing as i keep getting the message "adobe reader is required to view the PDF manuals." Thing...

All you need to do is to go to the Adobe website(link below) and download the latest version and install it. After the installation of the Adobe software, you can then re-try to install your camera.
Adobe download link
Make sure you do not change the default download path for the Adobe software while installing it. The default download path is C;/Program Files/Adobe.
Better still, if you do not understand anything through the installation process, comment on here and I would get back to you soonest.
