Run the normal uninstall program, shutdown and restart, then do a search for 'all files and folders' - 'Adobe' then delete.

You should do this search and delete whenever you uninstall any programs. It will remove lots and lots of leftover junk files taking up room on your hard drive. It will also give you a "clean install" when you reinstall or install an updated program. You could also download then update and run Registry Mechanic too, prior to reinstalling Adobe.

If you get this error message when you try to open a particular file. the problem could probably be in the .pdf file and not the software. if this is not the case, uninstall adobe reader completely and reinstall it. if this docent work. download the latest version of adobe reader from the adobe site and try installing it again.

.pdf files in adobe reader 8.0

Hi Jim,

While I can't tell you why adobe 8 wants to save files before reading or printing, I can suggest that you try again to go to:

control panel in XP
add/remove programs
pick adobe 8 and uninstall it

If you still have the older version installed try to see if it works now. You may need to restart pc to get it working.
If not then uninstall all versions or READER you may have.
Restart computer.

Now go to ADOBE.COM and install VERSION 9, the latest, and try it out. Its best to go directly to the site from your browser rather than follow links of dubious origins.

If it STILL won't work right for you, then try the following.
Go to the link below and install the older version of READER that you liked. Its a fine website with OLDER versions of many programs.

http://oldversion.com/program.php?n=acrobat

Good luck Jim, and I beg you please don't vote for me unless I was able to FIXYA!
Thanks.
