: you can Manually download licensing patch from

Also manually download all Acrobat updates (8.1, 8.11, 8.12) from

You will need these patches for futher steps.

. Run msconfig from the start menu; hit Selective Startup and uncheck Load Startup Items. Click Services Tab, hit Hide All Microsoft Services at the bottom of the box; then hit Disable All button. Reboot in Admin Account.

--All steps below must be performed IN EXACT ORDER or this will not work!!--

1. Uninstall Acrobat through Control Panel

2. Reinstall Acrobat through Control Panel, but DO NOT RUN Acrobat!

3. Immediately apply 8.1 patch

4. run the licensing patch, as described on the licensing page

5. Apply the 8.11 patch, then the 8.1.2 patch

Reboot, and then you should be able run Acrobat normally. You can re-enable startup items from step 2 through msconfig again (Hit Normal Startup), and you should be good to go.

Try downloading Revo uninstaller (free) uninstall Adobe reader I presume we are talking just the reader, typical Adobe is very big so more to go wrong. follow the instruction, the beauty of Revo is that it uses Adobe to uninstall then it jumps in to remove Adobe leftovers in your registry, hopefully this way it will bypass "patch cannot be verified"
Download Foxit Reader it only ways in at 10Mb
I presume you checked with your IT dept?

best of luck
