Hey guys,

Ive been having issues opening up documents in ADOBE Acrobat reader.

I have tried to uninstall/install numerous times, and the troubleshooting from adobe is no help

I would like to try to remove any instances from the registry and re-install, but I am leary of messing with registry. Does anyone have information on what could be causing this trouble?

I am using ZoneAlarm (purchased) for my firewall/spyware/virus

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

I had that problem with Adobe 7 so i just uninstalled it and went back to using version 6. There are a few websites that won't let adobe 6 open the pdf so i just skip them. On this computer that has the same motherboard but a different hardware setup adobe 7 works just fine. One thing i don't do is the little upgrades that the reader trys to get you to download. That was the reason adobe 7 quit working on the other computer. The update crashed the computer pretty badly.

I'm running ZA on all my puter so i don't think its a factor.

My Motto: if it works don't mess

Yes, That seems to have solved the problem.

I loaded Adobe 6.0.1 and it works like a charm.

Thanks
