Make sure your user account has administrator rights.
To determined your user account:
For Windows XP:
1. Click on Start then select Run
2. type control userpasswords2
3.Click on OK

For Vista and Windows 7:
1. Click on Start then on the bottom to search for Program or files
2. Type run
3. Click on Run then type control userpasswords2
4. Click on OK

If your user account has an administrative rights then there is problem on permission or ownership on the hard drive or a folder.
How to take ownership of a folder loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); You must have ownership of a protected folder in order to access it. If another user has restricted access and you are the computer administrator, you can access the folder by taking ownership.

To take ownership of a folder, follow these steps:

  1. Right-click the folder or the hard drive that you want to take ownership of, and then click Properties.
  2. Click the Security tab, and then click OK on the Security message (if one appears).
  3. Click Advanced, and then click the Owner tab.
  4. In the Name list, click your user name, or click Administrator if you are logged in as Administrator, or click the Administrators group. If you want to take ownership of the contents of the folder, select the Replace owner on subcontainers and objects check box.
  5. Click OK, and then click Yes when you receive the following message: You do not have permission to read the contents of directory folder name. Do you want to replace the directory permissions with permissions granting you Full Control?All permissions will be replaced if you click Yes.

    Note folder name is the name of the folder that you want to take ownership of.
  6. Click OK, and then reapply the permissions and security settings that you want for the folder and its contents.

Please let me know the exact error message when you try to install Adobe reader.

Why wont adobe acrobat reader download to my pc? i need it to do my online classes for school


Hi,

This is probably because your user account type is limited meaning anything you try to download won't.

If your account is set as administrator then try to download Adobe Reader instead. Try to download Adobe Reader from the link below.





http://get.adobe.com/uk/reader/






If your computer still won't allow you to download Adobe Reader then ask whoever gave you the computer to download and install it for you.


Good luck.

Acrobat.com won't let me uninstall


It's installed as part of Adobe Air or Acrobat Reader 9 upgrade. Try these steps to manually remove acrobat.com, which most people don't realize they are installing because Adobe went the route of SPYWARE. - http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/407/kb407354.html
