If you have problem with GDT then you should reinstall it. If this dont solve your problem then some file is missing from your pc. Remove it from Add/Remove programs in control panel and then reinstall it. For missing file you need to reinstall your operating system then try again

Un-install it and re-down load from a "trusted" website directly from Google. Then re-install. Should work.

    When you do this do you have your anti-virus program turned on? Turn it off momentarily while you connect to Google to get GDT. It might be interfering with it. If you still are having trouble and you absolutely want it, contact the help desk at Google. They'll figure out what is wrong.
    Also when you download you have two choices, save to disk or install. Try both ways then contact Google.

At the top left side of that second window should be a "save" icon. It looks like a floppy disk, right next to the print icon. Click on that icon and a Save dialog box will open. Just pick where you want to save the manual to.

Documents load into notebook instead of pdf(adobe)

right click on the document you want to open, select "open with", it will bring a window up asking what programme you would like to open the document with. If there is nothing in the window click on "browse" then choose adobe and click on the adobe reader icon, make sure you check the box that says "always use this programme to open this type of file"

all your pdf's should now open in adobe reader from now on

let me know how you get and please rate my help

Google Desktop will not start.

The shortcut on your desktop maybe the old one you said that you reinstalled the Google Desktop BUT you did not uninstall the first one. The Icon on your desktop still refers to the old installation when somewhere while you use that programm CCleaner it wipe Google Desktop. Delete the icon on your desktop and reinstall allow google to place the icon again on the desktop. I can tell you another way to go and get it but that takes another explanation.
