This is my first time to post here and im hopeful to get some relevant replies regarding my problem. I have this problem wherein each time i click to open MY COMPUTER or any other folder on my pc, an acrobat installer appears :blink: so i have to cancel thE acrobat installer all the time and after that the contents of MY COMPUTER opens. I dont know if this is due to some kind of a virus in my computer...sad to say i have unistalled my antivirus software on my PC. Does installig another antivirus solve this or do i have to reformat my computer in order to avoid that annoying thing :whistling: . .please help

Is this the version you have

http://filehippo.com...acrobat_reader/

Have you tried letting it install what it wants? Or at least seeing what it wants to install

Open Adobe Reader, click help / check for updates

Or

Let the installer run, it should not run after this

Or

Uninstall it and then re-install it
