Try doing the following:

1. Uninstall Adobe Reader thru the Control Panel's Add/Remove Programs.
2. Delete the Adobe directory in the Program Files directory.
3. Restart your computer.
4. Download and reinstall Adobe Reader.

Please let me know if this doesn't work.

Thank you for using Fixya and Good Luck

    From another guy

    Try holding down the left-shift key right after
    launching Reader. This disables plugins. If the error goes away, figure
    about which plugin is vexing you.

    The plug-ins folder is Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 8.0\Reader\Plug_ins

    In
    my case after a clean install of Reader 8.1.0 a plugin called
    AI2Z_PDFAHOI.api was being added by something. I could not find any
    info on google. I found the plugin by looking at plugin creation dates
    (not modification) and noticed it had been created after the time of
    Reader installation. I removed it and made a folder with the same name
    to prevent it from being put back; plugin folders already existed so I
    figured another one won't hurt. That worked to quell the error.

Pdf file cannot open


What version of Reader are you using? Some newer .pdf files ure using formatting codes that older versions of Reader cannot decipher and thus fail to open. Older files will still read regardless of the version of reader. Ensure you have the most recent version of Reader and try again.

What must I do if when I open adobe reader it say me: invalid plugin detected. Adobe reader will quit. ????


tried up-issues (Adobe Reader 8.1.2+) and got the same error "invalid plugin detected. Adobe Reader will quit".

I fixed this error by following laborious steps described in the Adobe Technical Support Home.
Not sure if this helps you guys; but worth a try. Developers should say if this the real cause.

You can find these in the "plug-ins" folder. [C:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader 9.0\Reader\plug_ins]

"HAEvents32.api" is the main culprit. Along that, I removed "Helmant32.api" and "Helmbkmk32.api".
Without deleting these two, an error or two might come but still PDF will work. I tried all these combinations.

Note: Delete these files if present anywhere else in the system else they recreate themselves.

Thanks every one.

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 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

When I open an attachment-pdf for instance. or any attachment for that matter. The windows media player opens, with an error message saying it cannot open this type file. is this an adobe reader problem


Sounds like your files are not assigned to the correct program.

Open Windows Explorer and find a pdf file.

Right click on it and choose Open With...

Select Adobe Reader and check the box at the bottom that says:

Always use the selected program to open this kind of file.

Click OK.

All pdf files should then open in Adobe.

You can do the same with any other type of file by choosing the program you want to open it with.

Thanks for using Fixya.
