Q: Adobe Reader 10 (or X if you're into Roman numerals!)

If you have to use Adobe (or just want to), the latest version (which includes Sandboxing protection) is now available;http://www.adobe.com/products/reader.html

Interesting piece about why you should probably upgrade (if Foxit or the other alternatives don't appeal to you) here at Sans.org;http://isc.sans.edu/index.html

Preferred Solution: Adobe Reader 10 (or X if you're into Roman numerals!)

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Adobe Reader 10 (or X if you're into Roman numerals!)

Thanks for the alert. It is a very useful security feature to have.

I'm now very annoyed with Adobe for sticking their McAfee scanner onto my machine without so much as a checkbox of permission, but at least that uninstalled cleanly.

I have had my ASUS G51VX laptop for a couple years now and it's still going strong. However, just recently the built-in SD card reader has stopped reading cards for some reason. When I pop in a card Windows will make the sound that a USB device has been plugged in and then a couple seconds later it will make the unplugged sound. The "Removable Storage Device" does not show up in Computer. I've tried looking through the Device Manager to find the card reader and re-install the driver, but I can't seem to find it anywhere. I suppose it is one of the USB controllers. I've also tried multiple SD cards so I know it's not the card.

Anyone have any ideas? Thanks!

I have an Asus CG5270 with a built in card reader and my card reader worked when I first ran my PC after a while it quit working, yet my ms reader works, strikes me as odd is the ms reader and the sd reader are on the same physical board. I am running Win Vista X64.

I have Dell Optiplex GX620, P4 3.4ghz tower. I'd like to install an internal USB card reader in the unused 3.5" drive bay. The problem I'm having is locating the USB port on the motherboard to connect the USB drive to. Has anyone done this or has a similar machine that has a factory card reader installed. I already have a multi card reader with the pin connectors.

Any help would greatly be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

There are only so many places for it to hide on the motherboard and if you can't find it, it isn't there. Actually, I looked up the manual and it doesn't appear to have an internal USB header. You'll have to install a PCI USB card with an internal header.

So I have an SD card reader slot on my laptop, an Acer Aspire 3690, when I put a memory card into the slot, it doesnt read it or even acknowledge it. When I open My Computer it doesnt show up at all. I can see and read it on my pc, but seem to have trouble with it on my laptop, where I want to use it.

Hi

if its an SD card reader then there is a size limit it can read, usually 512mb is the most, if the card is a 1gb or higher then it needs a SDHC reader which your PC probably has.

Quick one this:

I've a slightly dated machine with a A8N-SLI Deluxe Asus motherboard. My 5-in-1 is an old floppy one with SD bla bla. The issue here is that the connector that comes out the back of the 5-in-1 is not a USB two row jobby.

Instead its a single row of 4 pins with...

+5V
Data-
Data+
Gnd

...written on.

Now I don't know how generic card readers and motherboards are with regard to this issue but I don't know what I'm doing here. I'm eager to sorting this out cos doing data transfers from the reader is massively quicker than doing so via USB cable!

Cheers and hope you can help!

It sounds like you're describing the power connector which is the same as what's found on the back of 3.5" floppy drives. If so, it plugs in to the PSU-internally, but you still need an interface cable.

The card has slid all the way to the back of the reader. I did try using a tweezer like most people used to solve their problem, but i bought 3 different sized tweezers and they don't fit because the card has went above the rail that you slide it in.
Any ideas on how to remove it?

If you don't understand what i mean, i can take a picture and attach it. Just ask.

A:8-in-1 Mem Card Reader Dissapears from Device List at Times

I doubt the anti-static wristband is helping much, but it doesnt hurt. Have you tried cleaning the port you're having issues with? Sometimes dust and dirt builds up and causes the contacts to... not connect anymore. Use one of those compressed air cans you can buy at Staples, or just blow in there with your mouth and see if anything comes loose, then try again. Cleaning with IPA would be ideal but normally these ports are too small to get anything small enough in there

I'm not sure if that has something to do with the Reader/Burner problem. Also it's a 2 in 1 if that might be good to know. Sorry for most of the stuff on the image for being Swedish. If there's something specific on it wich you want translated just tell me and I'll translate it for you.

Thank you really much for your time,
Dealman
 

A:Reader/Burner Drivers Problem?

Try reinstalling the drivers for the drive. If this doesn't help then it sounds as though the drive is broken.

Is there a way to get it to not show multiple drives when there's no cards inserted? Meaning showing the drive in explorer only when something is inserted.

This is an internal card reader by the way. Thanks!
 

A:Card reader showing mutiple drives

I don't think you can do this. It's kind of like removing the DVD drive when no DVD is inserted. Is it necessary?

I bought and install a 19-1 Internal Card Reader. It shows up in My Computer and Windows Explorer as 5 different Storage drives along with the USB icon in the System Tray, similar to when I plug in my Flash Drive Device in my USB socket. My problem is when I put my computer in the Standby or Sleep mode and at a later time Awake my computer, the USB icon is gone and my computer no longer sees my Card Reader. The only way I can get it back, so far, is by removing my side cover, unplugging the connector from the USB header pins and then reconnecting it. Is there a way to have the computer re-recognize the drive without having to physically unplug and replug the connector?
 

A:Card Reader disconnects itself

You could check the manufacturer page in case they supply newer drivers for the cardreader.

Also, you can go to Device Manager and tell Windows not to turn off cour cardreader device to save power.

My dvd/cd reader does not read anymore, it tells me to insert disc, or disc not found. my pc does acknowledge the drives existence, so do you recon that its time for a new one ? or could it be a repairable fault?

Do you have any cds or dvds that are bootable? If so - put that in and reboot (make sure its set in BIOS to boot off cd before hard drive). If it won't boot off the disk its time for a new drive. If it does then something in Windows is screwed up.

This product is more for fun than actual security. You can use this for boot but you can still type in the password making it nothing more than a convience to log in. The only other thing that it does is remember login and password information. If I where to guess it creates a file of these passwords actually making your system a little less secure. However, saying you have a fingerprint scanner is cool in an odd sort of way.

A:Whats a Good Graphics card for Gaming and using Adobe Software-Graphics

7...

I've done a lot of research on this because I built a new system back in August. While I am not much of a gamer, I needed a very good NLE machine. However, the card I chose is quite the gamer card but had all the extras I needed to run Adobe Video Collection.

I picked the Connect 3D Radeon X850XT Platinum card from Tigerdirect. At the time it was $350 but I know it's cheaper now. It's got everything you need for a demanding application like Premiere Pro 1.5 and its related software. 256MB of GDDR3 memory and dual DVI outs. I highly recommend this card. I've been using it since the start of September with Adobe and it's great.

Your CPU and memory are a bit more of an important factor with rendering and burning though. My new PC has a 3.4Ghz P4 and 2GB of 533Mhz dual channel RAM. It's an exceptional increase in speed and productivity over my old 2.4Ghz and 512 Rambus.

Greetings,
I'm building a 'puter to use solely for digital image editing (with PhotoShop) and am uncertain if I can just buy a motherboard with a video chipset on it or will I really gain anything by buying a high-end video card? I will not be playing games.

Thanks in advance,
Ken
 

A:Video card for Adobe PhotoShop?

it sorta depends mostly on what type of editing but i would suggest going with a video card as well. that way you won't come unstuck... look for an ATI 9600/9800 at least... Nvidia has some good ones too, go with at least a fx5700..

you should also post the specs of the motherboard, is it PCI-Express or AGP 8x?

Oke problem I have:

I got a sigma mcr 100 card reader 2 card(2in1), this works fine on a windows Me, but this does not work on a winXP or win2000(needs to work under 2000).

When i plug it in, it windows finds a mass storage device, and i get 2 extra partitions in windows explorer(like it thould be). but then, when i insert a card, i can't access it. All i see is an empty card and can't write to it.
Also i don't see it in device manager. I only see my hard drives/cd-rom stations.
Shouldn't this be there aswel?

Any help is welcome , this card reader is from a friend and they use win2000 on there laptop(winMe on destop). So it works perfect on the desktop(winMe) but not on the laptop or any of my comps with winXP.
 

A:Card reader problem

Could it be a difference between USB1.1 and USB2.0?
The cardreaders should manifest themselves as extra hard-disks, NOT partitions.
In W2K you must Unplug/Eject first before you take it out again. In XP you can plug/unplug at will, don't know about ME.
In W2K, check that the motherboard USB-drivers are properly loaded, as well as the motherboard-chipset drivers (e.g. VIA all-in-one).

One of the progams she is running is Adobe PhotoShop Album 3. I have never used this program but from what I have read on Google, it shows thumbnails of various photos.

Can anyone tell me if the actual photos which the thumbnails depict are stored in the Adobe program on the hard drive; or are they stored in a separate location such as My Pictures, or on a web site, or wherever?

I'd be most grateful for any help on this as I don't want to lose any data in reloading Windows.

or

Hi all,

My flash player plugin keeps crashing. I have XP professional sp3, firefox 3.6.4 and flash player 10.1. Windows has all updates, I've uninstalled and reinstalled flash player and I reinstalled firefox. My computer has all updates, ad blocking software is not shutting it down and I have no malware.

When I go to a website with flash, my browser freezes for about 15 seconds, then it kicks back in. Then I usually get the message telling me that the flash plugin has crashed. I can watch videos on youtube and some other places, but some other websites will not play flash. The places where I can watch flash are jerky. If I disable all the flash player components my browser works fine, I just can't view flash then.

Is this an incompatibility issue with firefox and flash? Anyone else having these problems?

Thanks

Adobe Reader works inside of Browsers but will not open a PDF file, it 'Stops Responding'.

After uninstalling, cleaning up adobes crap with a tool they provide then installing Adobe Reader again it worked for three days then stopped responding again.
There are several posts about changing the Protected mode but that can only be done if the Reader is working, its not responding so you can't access the setting.
Edit the registry
HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Adobe/Acrobat Reader/11.0/Privileged/bProtectedMode and set the Data to 0

Adobe had me re-install twice then clean by install with a tool they gave me then install again but they never fixed the issue!

A:Adobe Reader Stops Responding

I have similar issues with Adobe Reader, but for me, all it does is just lag a lot while scrolling, but it doesnt stop responding. I have heard of that protected mode fix, but I do not know if it works.

Try this:
1) Download the Adobe Cleaner tool >>here<<.
2) Download the latest version of Adobe Reader, which is 11.0.06, >>here<<. This may help since it seems to me that you are running Adobe Reader 11, not 11.0.06. This release could solve your issues. If it doesnt, I am afraid I am out of options since I am not too familiar with Adobe Reader.

Every few minutes a get I UAC popup asking me if I will allow Adobe Flash Player

to change settings on my computer. I don't even have Adobe Flash Player

installed because when I did I couldn't open SWF files with it so I uninstalled

Adobe Flash Player 10 and the Plugin and used the portable version of Adobe

Flash Player. I even suspected the portable version as the cause of the UAC

popups but deleted that too and I still get them. All I have of Adobe's product is

the Adobe Reader yet something interpreted as Adobe Flash Player by Windows

7 pops a UAC every few minutes. I used a registry cleaner also so I have no idea

what is causing it. I could turn my UAC's off completely but that may not be a good

idea. Can anyone help with this?

I have having trouble with the Adobe browser plugins (e.g. youtube along with other sites will not load video). It will tell me that the plugin has crashed and here is what I have tried:
Uninstalling the products (flash and shockwave) then reinstalling (several times)
Uninstalling and reinstalling my web browsers (Firefox and Chrome)
Reset IE8

No luck at all

Please help.
 

A:Adobe browser plugin products

yes, lots of folk (me included) are having trouble with Adobe. two updates in one week, for a start....Adobe have lost just about all the credibility they ever had....like Symantec.

First off, note there is a separate update for Firefox.

Go here http://www.adobe.com/support/flashplayer/ and try some of the options offered. Somewhere or other (can't find it now), I found special instructions for Firefox, with a link to download FP_PL_PFS_INSTALLER.exe which does the job correctly.

Hi,

I don't know what changed this but now the adobe acrobat icons I have on my desktop have changed to show the first page of the document. How can I change it back to the red and white default icon? I have Windows Vista..

And this is happening only on my desktop. The PDF files I have in my folders are still the default red and white.

Might be easiest/safest to simply uninstall/reinstall Adobe. (it would only uninstall / reinstall the software and icons. It won't touch any personal files)

I ve been running Adobe Bridge start fails to CS4 Bridge Photoshop CS fine for many months but all of the sudden Bridge won t start I get the error quot Bridge has stopped working Adobe Bridge CS4 fails to start quot from Windows before anything pops up I have done lots of research into this issue and a popular solution is to Ctrl Click the Bridge shortcut and reset all the settings and purge the cache but after I click quot OK quot it just crashes again I have also tried uninstalling and reinstalling Photoshop amp Bridge Photoshop opens and runs fine The only possible cause for this I can think of is a couple days ago I accidentally shorted out a USB port by putting a stereo plug in it the headphone jack and USB port were very close together which instantly turned off my computer and ran some kind of hardware diagnostic recovery utility during bootup When the computer was done booting there were a few things that just didn t seem quite right although nothing was noticeably wrong my web browser settings were reset and desktop icons were rearranged etc The computer s been running just fine since then with the exception of this Adobe Bridge issue Any ideas Thanks nbsp

A:Trying to use Adobe Illustrator Magic Wand tool

Unfortunately I don't have experience with Adobe Illustrator. The program I work with has layers. If the layer with the object is not selected, the wand will not select correctly. I am confused as to why there is an object on the left side that looks as if it is selected. But yet you are trying to select an area on the right side.

I just tried your web site you posted. Its not working. For me. But if I pull up another site that requires Flash it works. I am leaning towards the website not your Flash. Try another web site that plays videos. See if that works for you.

Am I to guess that is Windows Vista, or what architecture?

I think uninstall it and install a slightly older version, and then update it, but make sure you download it from a known source say like Hippo files, TechSpot or Adobe's website.

I hope that helps...

Naturally, I have no such CD-ROM. I'm running on a year old Dell XPS 15 laptop with more bells and whistles then I know what to do with..lol.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

Got the Flash uninstaller and ran it to clean out old versions per the Adobe site, then downloaded & run the new version. The Adobe site said the install was successful. I rebooted as directed.

Tried to open a saved RealPlayer flv video download, didn't open (I've uninstalled RealPlayer). Instead the "choose app" window opened, and the Flash 10 wasn't listed.

Went into Start Programs and it's not in there.

Did a Search and nothing came up.

Went into Remove Programs and it does show in there, but is listed
as a Plugin. Don't understand exactly what that means.

Why doesn't it show up in Programs, or in the Select Application window?

Where does it say it's always got to be so complicated?

Thx for explaining things to me!!

A:System Errors after trying to install Adobe Acrobat

There are two easy options available to you (i'm assuming you are talking about acrobat reader):

1. Try using system restore and go back to pre-acrobat period.

2. Or, you can try out foxit pdf reader ....... which is far superior in performance than acrobat reader anyway.
Goodluck

Ok, originally on this older comp using XP home it originally had macromedia flash on it. But now its adobe flash anyway, I updated it and everything but when I would try and play a flash game from the desktop it wouldnt play properly using flash/shockwave so I would have to open it with internet explorer to make it run correctly but this was hindering an in program save, so to fix the problem I had to fix flash/shockwave, so I removed all flash and shockwave I could find and reinstalled the new flash. Well now when I click on the file it brings up an open with prompt without an option to select flash to open it with. Where is it installed to or how can I open it and make it run correctly .
 

A:Adobe Flash playing problem

Questions:

Are you using the flash plugin for your browser.?
Which browser were you using before you changed to IE?
What version of Flash is installed?
If you are getting the Open With screen, it means that Flash isn't configured correctly.
The current version of flash automatically runs a process named plugin-container.exe on startup.

Please do this: Reboot the computer> Right click on the Taskbar> Select Task Manager> Click on Processes tab> Double click on the frame above the 'image' names to sort the column> do you see the plugin-container.exe there?

Let me know please, then we'll go from there.

Please don't try to make any more changes until I find the cause of the problem.
