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
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.)
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 know the =ROMAN(number) formula to get roman numerals, but what i have a problem with is getting text in the same cell as the roman numeral
the whole cell, including text has to be a complete formula...
Hope it helps
What is the Excel formula to change text date to 'pipe' delimited Roman numerals (e.g. June 8, 2009 should be converted to VI|VIII|MMIX.)
Rather than my simplyy posting links to quite a few possible solution, if you do the google trawl/search I did using the string (search words):Roman numerals in excelyou'll get some clearly viable results.

I updated to Adobe Reader 9.2 from Adobe's website this morning and when I got home, it said Adobe updater needs attention. It was offering to install 8.1.4. Maybe because I haven't restarted yet. I thought that was weird. Several problems trying to open a pdf file after updating. Said tab has been restored and kicked me out of reader a few times. Finally it let me into the PDF and said it was parsing the data or configuring the file for reading or somesuch. I hope it stops behaving badly after a restart. paj692
Adobe has released some information about some big security holes in Adobe software: http://www.adobe.com/support/security/
You can turn off the updater as follows:
1. Load ADobe Reader
2. Go to Edit, Preferences
3. Select Updater at the bottom
4. Select 'Do not down or install updates automatically'

Don't know whats up with adobe these days --if I could find a decent alternative to Photoshop I would --Note the GIMP is fine but I NEED photoshop unfortunately --it's still the best out there in spite of Adobe's messing up the latest releases of its software.
I've used Foxit reader, but it wasn't totally compatible with Adobe Acrobat created PDF files, but in most cases it sufficed quite well. As for Photoshop replacements, there are a few others available and PaintShop Pro is not a bad alternative, though when Corel bought it out initially, it completely stuffed things up. I understand that it's fixed a lot of update issues etc in that time and it's leagues cheaper than Photoshop.http://www.eightforums.com/general-support/21931-foxit-reader-works-fine-uninstalling-adobe-pdf-reader.html

I'm considering changing from Adobe Reader to Foxit Reader because of all the problems Adobe seems to be having.
Any thoughts on this?

What are your reviews on Foxit Reader?Small Question: Can Foxit Reader view PDF files inside IE just like Adobe Reader?Edit:I was reading one of the reviews in Download.com and the user says:"Danger: Create a restore point if you have to install!"by (Name Removed) on November 26, 2008 Pros: Unknown. In order to do anything that Adobe reader doesn't already do - better, you must install other spyware-laden crap.Cons: Created a toolbar that would not uninstall, even after uninstalling program. Created unasked for shortcuts and entries in favorites.Does it really do this?
I have used foxit reader for awhile now and have not had a problem, I love it.. Yes it does open PDF file in IE as well as in Firefox
And the only reason that guy said about the toolbar is because he installed it!! It does not come prepackaged with it!
SITUATION I created a pdf file from a document that had fill-in forms I used Adobe Acrobat Professional to create the PDF file I then I burned the pdf file on to a CD When I used my Adobe Reader to open the PDF file I could fill-in the forms but not save them I received a message that said I could not save the information only print it unless I enabled the local save capability in the original pdf file I will be selling the CDs and need the buyer to be able to fill-in the forms and then save the document on the CD or the buyer s computer QUESTIONS How do I enable the local save capability on Adobe Acrobat Professional saving the document with the information typed Acrobat Adobe Professional & Adobe Reader into the fill-in forms How can I write protect the pdf file so no one can edit it except for the fill-in fields nor duplicate the disk Has anyone bought a software product from www SoftCaptain com and if yes what was your experience with the Adobe Acrobat Professional & Adobe Reader software product company nbsp
I can't answer all of your questions, but data on a CD is read only, you won't be able to save the edited file on that CD.
It can only be saved on the hard drive & then burned to CD again, if necessary.
I use both Adobe Reader 8 and Adobe Photoshop Elements 5.0. Whenever I open a pdf document, it always defaults to the Adobe Photoshop Elements. Is there a way to change the default so it opens with Adobe Reader? Thanks.
Navigate to where you store your pdf files.
Right click on one of these files and a dialogue will open inviting you to nominate which prog you wish to open that file.
In that dialogue, scroll down to "choose a program", when that opens,?scroll?to?Adobe?Reader,?click?on?that?and?then?click?on?"always?use?this?program?to?open?this?type?pf?file"

I use IE6 and Firefox 3. Do I have to? What are the up's and down's?
I was working on my home computer yesterday and got a notice saying that Adobe Reader wanted to update. I allowed it to update and for the first time I realized that I have PDF Reader on my computer as well. Can someone tell me if there is any difference between the two? Should I go ahead and uninstall one of them? Both are the free version but they do take up space. Thanks.
Adobe Reader (current version is 11.0.13) is the most popular and most used PDF reader out there, but there are several others.
It's one of the "must have" programs that I install in every computer that I own or service.
Most of the on-line guides, manuals, etc. are in PDF format, so you need a PDF reader such as Adobe Reader to be able to open and view them.

i need help my babylon have problem in Adobe Reader
That makes absolutely no sense to me. Could you explain your problem a little better.
I need to know how to delete or clear recent open files fron Adobe reader 9
I'm presuming you're using Win7 ... ?
Below are guidelines I had found online and used before, to get rid of the recently opened files in Acrobat 10 ... maybe the same works for the 9 Reader:
1. Open the Start menu and type "regedit" in the "Search programs and files" field. Press "Enter" to launch the registry editor application.
2. Open the "HKEY_CURRENT_USER" folder on the left side of the window.
3. Open the "Software" folder.
4. Open the "Adobe" folder.
5. Open the "Acrobat" folder.
6. Open the "10.0" folder. (maybe in your case the "9.x" folder)
7. Open the "AVGeneral" folder.
8. Right-click the "cRecentFiles" folder under the "AVGeneral" folder and select "Delete."
9. Click "Yes." This clears the recent document history from Adobe Reader X.
The next time you run the application, it recreates the "cRecentFiles" registry key and begins tracking the document history again.
Hope this helps

I have downloaded Adobe Reader 8, it appears to have loaded ok, but when I view a pdf page on the internet, I can't print it. I can print from within Adobe Reader help menu & other programs with no problems. Can you tell me how to fix this problem? Thanks.
How are you trying to print it? Are you using the IE print icon? If so, that probably won't work (mine doesn't either). Try looking for a print icon within the Adobe window and that should work.
I advised my friend to download the Adobe Reader 9.1 from this site,

Could you please advise me on this as I have not had this happen often enough

I accidently clicked on "don't allow." And worse, I had it set to remember my choice.

I then get the message "the file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the set Associations control panel" . When I tried to open Default programs it gives me the same message.
right click on the file that you want to open and choose 'open with'......then find the appropriate app that needs to open that file (word for .docx, excel for .xlsx, etc) and set it to 'always open' with that app.

You could use Foxit Reader for PDF. It's free and can be run from a flash-drive
Recently I had windows software reloaded and am attempting to install some of my programs back on PC.
I installed adobe reader free, version ll.0 (121 mb) but I think maybe I installed the wrong one. When I click on desktop adobe icon, a box appears and there is mention of creating a PDF file which I thought the free one did not allow. Clicking on help/about Xl is all about copywright and a little box with 'credits' to click.
Isn't 121 mb an excessive size? Before the windows software re-install, the version I had on was 188.8.131.523 - Apr. 12/2012.
How can I cleanly & completely uninstall it? If it is the wrong version, could you please direct me to the one I should be installing?
I am not a computer whiz and would appreciate your help. Thanks in advance.

I bought an electronic digital voice recorder on eBay and had to download the manual into Adobe Reader. The font is so very tiny. I tried enlarging it and it was fuzzy.

so you already have tried zooming in. Try this: OCR the pdf. You could also try selecting the text and copying-pasting it to wordpad/notepad.

I have tried time and time again to remove Adobe Reader 6.0.1 to install the latest version.However when I do this I keep getting this error: The feature you are trying to use in on a CD-ROM or other removable disk that is not available. Insert the Adobe 6.0.1 disk and click OK.
Can somebody please tell me how I can get around this as I no longer have the disk.

Hi, I have a problem with the adobe reader..Would appreciate your help.
How do u combine the pages from 1 file into another file such that there would be page 1 and page 2, cause i realised there is no cut and past option for the page. Hence unable to bring over a page from a file to another file.
Thanks for the help..
beginner to comutors have a toshiba windows 7 i have adobe reader x installed i cannot print of more than the 1st page what am i doing wrong or is it not compatable
What happens when you try to print out several pages?
I know that it's certainly possible to print properly from Reader X on Windows 7.
The first things I would check are
Have you got enough paper in the printer? (It sounds dumb, but I guarantee it gets more people than would care to admit it)
Can you print without problems with any other software such as Microsoft word?
There doesn't appear to be an option to insert pages. Does anybody know what is going on with this?
Are you creating your files PDF files before you try to insert the file?http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/103248/adobe-reader-8/

Can anyone tell me when I create a PDF file I receive an error:
Cannot find or create the font MSShellDlg,Bold. Some characters may not display or print correctly.
What application is creating the file?
I have Adobe Reader 6.0 installed and it usually displays PDF files properly. Sometimes I cannot get the program to run, either by selecting it from the Programs dropdown menu or by opening a PDF file from the desktop.
I have been reinstalling this program each time the problem recurs.
I could use some advice, please.
I hv windows 2000 and i am trying to print a pdf document using Adobe Reader 7.0, it is printing fine, but it is not including the comments.

I have a new problem opening Adobe reader 9. Used to work fine, but suddenly my pc goes into safe mode the moment I open Adobe reader, or click on a pdf file to open. What can be the cause?
What do you mean by "safe mode?" Is your computer shutting down when you open a PDF and then booting back up in safe mode?
Is your antivirus software or firewall software giving some kind of warning?
The reason I'm asking is, there is no such thing as running a program in safe mode in Vista while maintaining a session. You'd have to restart your computer to run Vista in safe mode.
If it's some sort of dialog box informing you of something going on, and it's not the Blue Screen Of Death, can you screenshot the message for us, please?
1) First, open up MS Paint.
2) Open up Adobe or a PDF.
3) When the error message or whatever happens, happens, hit the "Print Screen" key on your keyboard.
4) Go to MS Paint.
5) Paste. <Control>+<V> or from the Edit menu, either way works. You'll see your whole desktop as an image in Paint.
6) Go to the Image menu, select "Crop," and use the cursor to box in whatever it is that's telling you about safe mode.
7) Go back to the Image menu and select Crop again to crop the image to just that dialog box or whatever it is.
8) Save it to a Photobucket account and copy the image's URL location.
Insert the image into your reply to this thread.
Is there any way to get into preferences for this program in order to specify opening percentage size etc?
I have an IBM T43p laptop. In the process of getting rid of programs I never use, I have Adobe 9.3.4 in the add/remove program list. Unlike the other programs, I'm not given the option of removing it. Anyone know why? Thanks
Hi there I'm new to this kind of thing and not very techy when it comes to my computer but here goes Last night my computer told me there was an upgrade to Adobe Reader XI which I duly accepted and it downloaded When I then went to open a PDF it took ages to load the user agreement and then Reader XI Adobe it froze the screen Adobe Reader XI with the 'not responding' message I closed it and re-opened it half a dozen times with the same Adobe Reader XI thing so I decided to uninstall the Reader with the intention of re-installing the earlier version How wrong was I First of all it took me through the steps to download but then nothing happened when I hit the 'run' button The next time I tried a different tact and saved the file on the desktop before running it which got me one step further but once the window came up initialising it just froze again telling me it could not be completed and the 'not responding' message came up again When I then went to close it it just kept freezing even when I went to task manager and end task so in the end I had to just restart I tried this about three times each with the same thing I even tried to go to the control panel to see if there was any way of undoing my uninstall but alas no such luck After ejecting the battery and trying again In the end I shut it down and left it for the night hoping someone could help me this morning as I really don't like using the Windows pdf reader app thing Would now be a good time to mention that although I have windows I don't actually use it as I can't work it so I have a shell thingy which makes the screen look likes windows if that makes sense I hope someone can help Hannah
I don't know why you are having these issues with Adobe Reader, but why don't you try another PDF reader? I dumped Adobe Reader for PDF-XChange Viewer a long time ago. IMHO, it is smaller, lighter and better than Adobe's bloated reader. You should give it a try.http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/557462/adobe-reader-xi/
adobe reader is installed on this HP Mini from factory.
when do u use it?
All I can say is that you had better remove Adobe Reader 9 and install the latest version (Reader X):
PDF reader, protected mode | Adobe Reader X
The link above will also tell you what you can do with the program - its main function is to open and read PDF files.
Adobe Reader 9 caused Windows Explorer to crash on my Windows 7 HP computer. In addition, older software versions are vulnerable to malware - they're a security hazard.
Always keep your OS and programs up-to-date :-)

Are you printing to a printer or to a PDF printer? Some companies encrypt their documents to prevent them from being printed.

trying to download adobe reader 220.127.116.11.I no some bright spark can help me and it would be appreciated!
change my outlook fromthis to this
I ran into this one also, which is why I removed Adobe everything and use Foxit Reader now.
Two ways that I approached this:
a. Adobe has installed so many files in so many places...that it has begun to rank right up there with QT on my hate list .
b. To remove all of those files, I can
1. Use jv16 PowerTools, a program I purchased years ago, to remove all files and reg entries that have "Adobe" in them.
2. Manually use regedit to search for and remove all registry files with "Adobe" in them AND manually remove all files/folders which are even remotely linked to Adobe...being mindful that Adobe Flash can always be installed later (with a more current version).
I don't use CCleaner, but I believe that it is what I might suggest for the average person to use to remove Adobe (or any other) junk files. Someone will come along to clarify my belief.
There are other "uninstallers" that do the job, but I have no experience with them.
Adobe reader wont open pages that have documents on the web with adobe reader attached to them....................If I go to a pdf file on my computer it will open it any ideas..
We've had Adobe Reader 9.3.3 on our 3 WinXP computers for quite sometime.
A day or two ago, when we turned on our computers, we got a (red) pop-up box asking us if we wanted to update or download (we don't remember which) 9.3.3.
We clicked on it and it downloaded but we failed to realize it was 9.3.3. and we already had 9.3.3.
Did anyone else get this pop-up / download?
Could this have been a trojan or virus we downloaded? How can we tell what has happened?
We are now quite frightened that we have done something to damage our computers.
Please, can someone help?
One of our users is having a problem with Adobe Reader 6.0 Professional. When he saves a PDF from Lotus Notes 6.5.1, he gets an error message "A drawing error occurred". After uninstalling and reinstalling 5.0.5, a different error occurred, "Insufficient Data for the Image".
This is a new PC build and everything worked fine before, on his old PC. He is running XP Pro SP2, Notes 6.5.1.
I have uninstalled/reinstalled Notes, give Administrator access to both adobe and Lotus, uninstalled/reinstalled Adobe 5.0.5 and 6.0 Pro.
Nothing we have come up with has worked as of yet. Anyone have an idea that could help us out? Google and various other forums don't give alot of help.
Oh, if I view a web based PDF and save that, there is no error, it works fine. This is related somehow to Notes and Adobe.
OK, fixed it. It was a permissions issue. The user was an administrator of the local machine but he was a power user of his domain account. Made him an administrator of his domain account and he was then able to view and save the PDF's from Notes.

Take a look in the Adobe Reader Program Files folder. If there is a file in there called something like 'uninst. exe' double click that. At the worst nothing will happen.http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/110719/adobe-reader-70/
I am getting VERY sick and tired of Adobe Reader 8 freezing my system every time I run it with that 'updater' thing. If I want an update I'll go to the Adobe website and download it. But I haven't found any way to disable it. Can this be done? Or is there a decent third-party PDF reader available? I tried a few found in random searching, but they seemed clunky and unreliable.

I have adobe 6.0.5 installed now on my computer, they have Adobe 7 out now. Do I have to remove adobe 6 to install adobe 7? I have lots of adobe updates to 6 in my add/remove section, update 6.0.1, 6.0.2 6.0.3 etc to adobe 6.0.5. If I update to adobe 7, can I get rid of the other updates or are they needed? Seems like adobe doesn't override the previous update and keeps it on the computer.
maybe i'm behind the times but here is a link for the adobe 8 reader you can also get adobe photoshop.http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html//Mod edit to provide adobe.com link rather than a direct download.

Can someone lead me thru installation of Adobe reader?
I have removed the old version, which did not work, by deleting it from the program files. Control panel said it did not exist.
If I now ask for the newest version, it gives me DC, which won't install because a newer version is already there. But there is no version there.
If I ask for Reader XI, I get a zip file, and the setup there won't run beause I don't have a specific file in APPDATA.
Can't I pretend I have never had reader and start form scratch?

Unless you're completely in love with and must have adobe. You could opt for an alternative with a smaller footprint and get rid of adobe altogether. But no, if you have reader 10 you don't need 6 unless you have an old application that isn't compatible that uses it. But you can always reinstall the old version if you find you need it from here: http://www.oldversion.com/Acrobat-Reader.html

I downloaded Adobe Reader 8.0 sometime last week and tried it out. Besides sucking 90 MB of memory (compared to 20-30 MB with Adobe Reader 7.0), it has a totally different and impossibly difficult to learn user interface compared to previous versions. I wanted to try a newer version of Adobe Reader... not learn how to view PDF documents all over again.

Is there any way to work with a document that comes in Adobe? I know you can only read it but was wondering if you can export to word or turn on any controls that will allow you to work with the document.

I assume, since your problem is posted in the Win 7 forum, that you are running Win 7. As I see it, you have three choices :
1 Since nearly all of us use the Acrobat reader from time to time, you could just update it to the current version which is 10.1.1 .
2 It does not come with a built-in uninstaller, but you can delete it using Control Panel : 'Start' , 'Control Panel' , 'Programs' , 'Uninstall a program' . This comes up with a list of your installed software, click on the Acrobat reader, click 'Uninstall' . This should remove it, if it doesn't, then :
3 Get hold of a copy of a utility called 'Your Uninstaller' . This is a little utility which is brilliant at uninstalling software, I use it quite a lot and it normally uninstalls everything associated with the program you tell it to uninstall.
Best of luck,
I saw where one should update to Adobe Reader 8.0 because of a vulnerability in the plugin. Like a dummy I uninstalled the 7.xxx and tried to download from here:http://www.softpedia.com/progDownload/Adob...nload_locationsTried in Firefox first and then IE and they both failed to execute. Had to restart in order to delete the corrupt or unfinished downloads. Just wondering if anyone else is having this problem or should I look further as to why I can't install the reader.I tried to update thru the program that I had before deleting, but it was not offering 8.0 even though it is a final release.
