Heya. I would be really happy if someone could help me to figure out one problem (or three or four, i don't know) with my computer. Whenever I want to open Windows Live Messenger or Adobe Reader, it gives me that "This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem" error. And I did tried to reinstall it and it didn't help. So now, I have no idea what to do.
Any clue?

Thanks for any response :)

Hi anotheruser ...welcome to Geeks To Go... :)
lets start with going to add/remove programs in the control panel...uninstall Adobe reader
Foxit Reader will replace Adobe reader
Foxit Reader is a free utility that includes some tools that Adobe lacks, including a "typewriter" tool that lets you type text over any PDF, and edit any of the text they contain. not just files that have been set with form fields.
Foxit launches very quickly (in about one second) and it requires no installation... It allows you open, view, print, and change the page layout in PDF files. For some functions, such as the typewriter function, FoxIt Reader shows an ad for FoxIt Reader Pro. However, these functions still work with minor limitations.
get foxit reader
