If you cannot remove the program try re-installing it and then uninstalling. Finally use a registry cleaner to remove all traces.
I have used 8.1 on winXP without problems though it keeps trying to update itself automaticaly.

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

Trouble Opening PDF files in Firefox 8


Could be you need the latest Adobe pdf file reader on your computer to open the files. Software can be such a PIA. Can also be because you are using firefox 8, a real old version of the browser. Update the browser!

Help with PDF Documents Some documents on Maine.gov are provided in PDF format. In order to view or print PDF documents, you need the free Adobe Reader. Generally, you will find an alternative format is also provided for the document, such as Microsoft Word, HTML, or plain text. If you cannot access a document in PDF format and there is no alternative version, please contact the agency or contact the Maine.gov webmaster for assistance.

We've provided solutions for some common PDF issues below.
General Tips: Problem 1: Blank Page in Browser You have selected to download a file and you receive a blank page with a "Done" message at the bottom of the browser. This may be because you do not have enough space in your temporary internet file folder to complete the download.
Solution: Internet Explorer: Tools> Internet Options> Temporary Internet Files> select Delete Files
Netscape: Edit> Preferences> Under Category on the left Advanced> Cache> click Clear Memory Cache
Problem 2: Blank Page "%PDF" You received an error message containing "% PDF" or you have received a blank page while trying to download. This is due to a problem with your web browser not opening .pdf documents correctly.
Solution: Adobe Acrobat Reader 5.0: Edit> Preferences> General> Options> Web Browser Options> make sure the Display PDF in Browser box is not checked.
Adobe Acrobat Reader 6.0 and newer: Edit > Preferences > Internet > make sure the Display PDF in Browser box is not checked.
Problem 3: "Error Locating Object Handler" You receive an error message that says "Error Locating Object Handler" while trying to download a document. This is because there is a dependency with a plug-in for Adobe Acrobat while using Internet Explorer.
Solution: Please go to the following website for detailed instructions: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;q262213
Problem 4: Unable to Print You have successfully downloaded the pdf, can view it on your computer screen but are unable to print. This is due to a post script error with your printer.
Solution: In any Acrobat Reader program: File > Print > check the Print As Image box > OK
Problem 5: "Adobe Reader could not open file" You received the error message "Adobe Reader could not open 'filename.pdf'" because it is either not a supported file type or because the file has been corrupted (for example, it was sent as an email attachment and wasn't correctly decoded).
Solution: Adobe Acrobat Reader 6.0: Edit> Preferences> Internet> make sure the Display PDF in Browser box is not checked.

I've tried downloaded updated versions of adobe reader; have done so, but there are older versions which now interfere. I'm unable to open any version at this time. Can you help?


The only recommendation i could make for you is just uninstall the previous versions then re-install the one version you would like to use...That's the only solution I know so far...

Adobe Acrobat 8 error 2711


Sounds menacing but it’s fairly easy to fix.
Heres how to fix it:
  1. Download msicuu2.exe (Windows Install Cleanup Utility) from Microsoft, or by clicking on the file name.
  2. Run msicuu2.exe
  3. You will then get a message asking if you wish to roll back the in progress installation. You do.
  4. Install Adobe Acrobat or Reader 8.

Adobe’s more intrusive way of fixing it:
  1. Click Start>Run, type in regedit then hit enter or press ok.
  2. Back up your registry (not actually mentioned by adobe but a good idea whenever you’re about to make changes to the registry)
  3. Look for Key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Installer\Inprogress
    and delete the key if it exists.
  4. Install Adobe Acrobat or Reader 8.

Office 2007 professional and Adobe 8 Professional problem


Very simple fix. Now and then after an Adobe Acrobat update Office will disable Adobe Acrobat as it is an add on. All you need to do is re-enable Adobe Acrobat. In Office 2007 goto Word Options, Add-ons, and at the bottom of the page is Manage. Click on the down arrow and select Disabled Items and click on GO. Re-enable Acrobat and you should be fine. In Office 2003, goto Help and selects disabled macros and re-enabler Acrobat.

Adobe Reader


This is a nice little FREE utility you can try. Install Microsoft "Windows Installer CleanUp Utility" http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301/en-us
If you find (PROGRAM NAME) listed just hit the delete button.
This will take care of the MSI problem.
Then do the normal Uninstall.
Uninstall Adobe Reader, do a search for all "Adobe" files and delete them. Go to the Adobe website and install the newest Adobe Reader 8.1 program.
http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html
CLEAN INSTALL needed here.
This time after the Uninstall, shut down completely for at least 30 seconds, and then restart.
Then do a search for 'all files and folders' - search for both 'Adobe' and then '7.0', with the options "Search system folders", "Search hidden files and folders" and "Search subfolders" checked. Delete all of those related files found.
You should do this search and delete whenever you Uninstall any programs. It will remove lots and lots of leftover junk files and corrupted files taking up room on your hard drive. It will also give you a "clean install" when you reinstall or install an updated program. (Do this ESPECIALLY when re-installing or updating to a NEW anti-virus programs and “Internet Security Suite” programs such as McAfee or Norton etc.)
BEFORE RE-INSTALLING Adobe 8.1 it's the NEW VERSION!
Download and install "Registry Mechanic" then do the updates prior to running it and removing anything for the first time. This will get rid of all your current Registry errors, prior to installing or reinstalling.
