I had been using an earlier version of Adobe Reader & last week a window popped up & I installed the new version 8.1. Today a window pops up stating Adobe Reader encountered an error --received over & over when attempting to use Adobe Reader. I removed Adobe Reader via the Control Panel, add/remove programs, & rebooted. Went to install Adobe Reader 8.1 and receive the following error message: Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file document\David T\locals\temp\Adobe Reader 8_______\setup.exe

I receive the same error message no matter what version of Adobe Reader I attempt to install. Searched the Adobe Reader knowledge database & found nothing.

How do I correct so I can use Adobe Reader again? Running Windows XP Media, Version 5.1, Service Pack 2

Thanks....Dave

You may close this problem since I have resolved after spending over a day banging my head against the wall. I resolved by going into the PRIVACY tab in ZoneAlarm and adding the name of the website which I was attempting the download from (i.e. geeekstogo.com, adobe.com). I have been using ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite for almost two years now and this is the first time I have enountered this which confuses me since I have done downloads within the last 3 or 4 months without enocountering this problem & those websites are not listed in PRIVACY.

Take care.....Dave
