Hi, new here. Hope this is the right place to put this thread.... anyway I have been using Adobe 6.0 effortlessly for awhile now, to make PDF's for my website. Now, all of a sudden, I can't convert anything to PDF. :tazz:
I've uninstalled and re-installed. Any ideas? I'm desperate to get things posted on the web page, as it is the main form of communicating with the members of my association. :)

Hello and Welcome to Geeks To Go

I think in you case that maybe some thing is corrupt.

To start first uninstall Adobe 6. Then please go to C:\Program Files and look to make sure that Adobe 6's folder is gone if not delete if.

Now go
Start < run and type sfc /scannow this will give a blue bar when it goes reboot. This will need the Windows XP CD so have that ready and in your computer. This will fix all corrupt files.

Now reinstall Adobe 6.

Hope this helps.

Michael,
I'm a newbie also, and having problems with Adobe 6.0 crashing every time I go look for a file.

I noticed in this post about uninstalling and reinstalling, so I thought maybe it might fit my problem.

You mention that I would need the Windows XP CD after doing this process, however I don't have a CD! So I'm afraid of following the directions. I purchased a bare bones from the local computer store which is reputable, however, did not received an XP CD with my purchase.

Anyway, making a long story longer, this is my problem:
I take large pictures, high resolution.
I upload them from my camera in smaller indiviual files.
I go into Adobe Photoshop 6 to edit, open the program, click on file, look for a file, and when I get to the folder it is in, the whole program freezes up.
I have to do the control/alt/delete to get the program to shut down

Sometimes Adobe works like a charm, sometimes it doesn't. It's getting to the point where it doesn't when I most need it.

I've tried uninstalling, reinstalling, putting on an external drive, hard boot, soft boot, opening from other means (i.e., through windows explorer, from the desk top, from the file, etc), but it still continues.

If the Adobe program is indeed corrupt, what to do next!

Thanks in advance,
Chris
