    Adobe Reader Installation problems

    System runs Vista SP1 HP on Quad Core 2 gig memory 320 gig hd 30% full. Ran into a problem with Adobe Reader last time used about a week ago all ok - now it loaded but indicated many of it's start up files could not be located, so I uninstalled and reinstalled from Adobe web site the latest version all appeared ok until I tried too open it same problem with files missing so I closed the program and then tried to open IE7 to investigate and guess what opens Adobe Reader with all it's missing files same thing happens with Outlook Express. So I uninstalled Adobe and all is fine with Browser & mail. Any suggestion appreciated.

    Save the downloaded file - do not run from the download dialog. Then right click the downloaded file and 'run as administrator'.

    I right clicked on AR 8.1.2 there was no option to run as Administrator so I clicked the compatibility tab and ticked the run as Administrator with exactly the same result as before. I also tried to run in XP mode same result, A one point in trying to open up my browser it said that file acrord.exe was not found. So I have uninstalled it again and all is ok again.

    Try downloading the full version from one of the Majorgeeks links at |MG| Adobe Reader 8.1.2. That should be an EXE which you can right click and select 'run as administrator'.
