    Try Foxit reader: http://www.foxitsoftware.com/pdf/reader/

    Works fine for me on 32 bit system. Can't see why it wouldn't work on a 64 bit version.

    I Use FOXIT on WIN 7 on both PCs - Desktop and Netbook - I recommend it highly - as does Windows Secrets itself.

    David, You should try this yourself. I have had no problems at all installing Adobe Acrobat Reader 9.x om my Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium machine.

    Are you sure? I just now visited the Adobe site and they were still offering me Reader version 9.2. Could you please post the link to version 10?

    Hey Paul (and other Loungers too!)! Be careful if you try Googling on it. I just did a search for "Adobe Acrobat Reader version 10" and came upon a link or two, NOT ADOBE, that look suspicious. I'm not going to mention any URL because I have no proof but I did use Domain Tools to look up one I saw. There's a lot of that kinda crap floating around the web trying to "trick" people about major software like Adobe, Office, Open Office and others. Be careful...

    Well, I must appologize. It is version 9.2 of Adobe Reader on my Windows 7 64-bit machine. It is version 10.0.42.34 of Adobe Flash Player that I have.

    The most recent versions of both (and Adobe AIR) are availble at www.adobe.com
