Adobe Confusion, Where Did Adobe Reader 5.0 Go?

Q: Adobe Confusion, Where Did Adobe Reader 5.0 Go?

Hi all, I need help. Strange things are happening. My computer freezes when I open a web page and click on a link. Sometimes the link will partially load, sometimes not, but if it freezes, I cannot X out of the whole thing. I have to use Control/Alt/Delete. Also, Adobe Acrobat has disappeared. It shows in the Add/Delete programs in the Control panel(Adobe Acrobat 5.0) but on the list of programs shown is I put the cursor at Start, Adobe name is there but it is empty. I tried to update it yesterday thinking that was part of my
problem but I was told there was no program to update and I cannot find it on-line anywhere to install again.

That is the difference between Adobe Acrobat 5.0, Adobe reader 7 and Adobe Flash Player 9? I am a new user (and an old granny) and am having real problems figuring a lot of this out. I have cleaned up everything I can think of and do not know how to address this problem. Any help is appreciated.

Preferred Solution: Adobe Confusion, Where Did Adobe Reader 5.0 Go?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I updated to Adobe Reader 9.2 from Adobe's website this morning and when I got home, it said Adobe updater needs attention. It was offering to install 8.1.4. Maybe because I haven't restarted yet. I thought that was weird. Several problems trying to open a pdf file after updating. Said tab has been restored and kicked me out of reader a few times. Finally it let me into the PDF and said it was parsing the data or configuring the file for reading or somesuch. I hope it stops behaving badly after a restart. paj692
 

A:Solved: I'm using Adobe Reader 9.2 why is the updater offering Adobe Reader 8.1.4

Adobe has released some information about some big security holes in Adobe software: http://www.adobe.com/support/security/

You can turn off the updater as follows:
1. Load ADobe Reader

SITUATION
I created a pdf. file from a document that had 'fill-in forms'. I used Adobe Acrobat Professional 6.0. to create the PDF file.

I then I burned the pdf. file on to a CD.

When I used my Adobe Reader 9.0 to open the PDF file, I could fill-in the forms, but not save them. I received a message that said I could not save the information, only print it unless I enabled the ‘local save capability’ in the original pdf. file.

I will be selling the CDs and need the buyer to be able to fill-in the forms, and then save the document on the CD or the buyer’s computer.

QUESTIONS
1. How do I enable the ‘local save capability’ on Adobe Acrobat Professional 6.0, saving the document with the information typed into the fill-in forms?

2. How can I write protect the pdf. file so no one can edit it (except for the fill-in fields) nor duplicate the disk?

3. Has anyone bought a software product from www.SoftCaptain.com and if yes, what was your experience with the software product company?

 

A:Adobe Acrobat Professional & Adobe Reader

I can't answer all of your questions, but data on a CD is read only, you won't be able to save the edited file on that CD.
It can only be saved on the hard drive & then burned to CD again, if necessary.

Do you guys remember when Adobe Reader was just this nice simple little PDF file reader. I had such a problem with Adobe Reader 9 and the site that I manage with all of Adobe Reader 9's add-on crap, that my once fine Adobe Reader 8 that came in at 60 MB's, with version 9 came in at over 200! I kid you not!

I'm sick of software companies piling on all this extra crap that has nothing to do with the performance or enhancement of the product. A PDF reader should be to read files....That's it. I don't need some graphic enhancing garbage, window washing, calender, singing man, Find Blimpy The Clown game, install the optional toolbar crap.

Luckily I was able to uninstall version 9 and go back to version 8 with the 8.1.3 within the program. Than I read at Adobe's site that there were some critical security patches for Reader 9. Well Adobe, if you would focus on the product necessities rather than the unrelated garbage, performance might be enhanced instead of hindered.

I can't wait to see what Blimpy The Clown does in Version 10! UGGHHH!

A:Foxit Reader works fine -- uninstalling Adobe pdf reader

I've used Foxit reader, but it wasn't totally compatible with Adobe Acrobat created PDF files, but in most cases it sufficed quite well. As for Photoshop replacements, there are a few others available and PaintShop Pro is not a bad alternative, though when Corel bought it out initially, it completely stuffed things up. I understand that it's fixed a lot of update issues etc in that time and it's leagues cheaper than Photoshop.

Adobe Acrobat 4.0 was on my computer when I bought it. I have Windows ME. Recently I downloaded a free copy of the Acrobat Reader 6.0 but Adobe Acrobat is not free. Is Reader a part of Adobe Acrobat? Should I buy an updated version Adobe Acrobat and if so, what would be the advantage of doing so
 

A:What is the difference between Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Acrobat Reader

Adobe Acrobat is the full version which allows you to create and edit pdf files. Reader is free and is just the viewer that allows you to read pdf documents someone else has created. If you still have the full version of 4.0 it should still work fine for creating simple pdf documents. The advantage of upgrading is that 4.0 is no longer supported by Adobe and the more recent versions (they're up to 7 now) have many more features. You should keep your version of the Reader current because older versions of the Reader may not be able to open documents created with the newer versions of Acrobat. But if you don't use Acrobat very much for creating and editing (and it sounds like you don't), I don't see any need to purchase an upgrade. Hope that all made sense.

All I can say is that you had better remove Adobe Reader 9 and install the latest version (Reader X):
PDF reader, protected mode | Adobe Reader X

The link above will also tell you what you can do with the program - its main function is to open and read PDF files.

Adobe Reader 9 caused Windows Explorer to crash on my Windows 7 HP computer. In addition, older software versions are vulnerable to malware - they're a security hazard.

If I try to download a older version of Adobe, it tells me I alreaady have a newer version on my computer and will stop at that. I have seasrched Adobe Forums , sent Adobe Support messages, and noone seems to want to give a clear suggestion as to what is causing this problem and how I can fix it. Is it true that some PDF programs such as Cool PDF, Foxit, etc will not open some PDF files?

Last night my computer told me there was an upgrade to Adobe Reader XI which I duly accepted and it downloaded. When I then went to open a PDF it took ages to load the user agreement and then it froze the screen, with the 'not responding' message. I closed it and re-opened it half a dozen times with the same thing so I decided to uninstall the Reader with the intention of re-installing the earlier version.... How wrong was I?!
 
First of all it took me through the steps to download, but then nothing happened when I hit the 'run' button. The next time I tried a different tact and saved the file on the desktop before running it which got me one step further, but once the window came up initialising it just froze again telling me it could not be completed and the 'not responding' message came up again. When I then went to close it it just kept freezing (even when I went to task manager and end task) so in the end I had to just restart. I tried this about three times, each with the same thing, I even tried to go to the control panel to see if there was any way of undoing my uninstall but alas, no such luck!

Version 9.1.0 is out to replace version 9.0.0.
