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

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

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

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.)

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
2. Go to Edit, Preferences
3. Select Updater at the bottom
4. Select 'Do not down or install updates automatically'
5. Click OK

When I am surfing the net and open a pdf, Adobe Reader begins the updating process which goes on and on and on - it never finishes! Any idea why this might be? At the moment I just eventually cancel the update so as to get rid of this winking updater icon on the task bar. (We're taking hours and hours!) I've trawled through the Adobe forums to no avail, but someone on BC will be able to help, I'm sure.
I'm running Vista Business. Thanks !

A:Adobe Reader 8.0 Updater

Don't know if I'm that someone, lulabelle,

but I will ask -

did you go to the Adobe site and download the current version, uninstall the one you have, and re-install the new one?

This might resolve the issue.
It's possible that your firewall is preventing the update. You might want to check it first, before you do the download/reinstall thing.

Let us know, OK?

Adobe Reader updater is getting on my nerves. I can't understand why there are so many updates.
What is really annoying is that everytime it updates it has to restart your computer. It takes an age to download and install as it is.

I just don't see the point of all these updates sometime 2 or 3 a week. I have now disabled it and also blocked it on my firewall.
Does anyone know if this is a dangerous thing to do? After all it is only a PDF reader.

Anyone else fed up with Adobe Reader Updater?

sometimes my machine slows right down and when I look on Task Manager under `processes`, it says that the Adobe Reader is working and using almost all of my CPU in the process.

Even if I try to click on it and try and `end the process`, it won't close and just keeps running.

Three questions!

Firstly, what is happening and can it be stopped?

Secondly, I hate Adodbe and only have it to use PDF Files with. Is there another programme that will do the same thing, just read and produce PDF Files? I thought I saw something somewhere that was a programme that did all of this without any of the hassle.

Lastly, is there a programme that will convert PDF format bck to a word document?

Regards, Tolshar.
 

A:Adobe Reader Updater

Hi tolshar,
Are you actually using Adobe Reader when you get the slowdown? Sounds to me like maybe it's in your StartUp programs and is always running. If it is there, you can safely delete it from StartUp and have it open only when you need it.

As for alternatives, take a look at Foxit or CutePDF and see if they do what you need.

Hope that helps.

Hello, Eight Forums.

Okay, this is what happened.

Yesterday, my Adobe Reader updated to Version 11.0.11 from version 11.0.10, which surprised me cause I didn't know there was a newer version out. When they changed to Version 11.0.10, they removed the Adobe Reader and Acrobat Manager/Adobe Reader Updater from the Start-Up entries and had put in a Scheduled Task to run the updater whenever the computer was idle. I found out this was to improve performance.

Alright then.

However when they updated to 11.0.11, they re-added the Start-Up entry. Which leads to the same executable as the scheduled task with no difference in target or whatever. Which is confusing. Especially since its set as a HKLM:Run entry.

So I've got Adobe Acrobat Updater as a service set to Automatic.
I've got a Scheduled Task set to run the updater whenever the computer is idle to check for updates.
Now I've got a Start-Up entry again which affects my boot time.

...

Can I use CCleaner to delete the Start-Up entry and just have the Scheduled Task again because it seems kinda pointless to have two different things check for updates.

Would this have any ill effects?
And yes, my Adobe Reader is set to Automatic Updates.

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.

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!

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?

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.

If I select open with Protected Mode disabled, Adobe still crashes for certain operations. My default EMET settings for AcroRd32.exe are everything checked except ASR.
If I disable all mitigations in EMET 5.5, Adobe Reader works normally.
If I return mitigations to default and then additionally disable EAF+, the problem persists, although I found a post saying that fixed the issue in earlier versions of EMET.

Sam is the only voice that comes with Windows.

If you can wait until Windows Vista comes out Sam will be replace by Anna.

Although there are other voices MS offers with its other software such as Microsoft Office and Microsoft Reader additions such as Lernout & Hauspie but they went out of business.

A:[SOLVED] Adobe Reader will not open

Hello and Welcome to TSF

Try using the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility. As long as you installed the application using the Windows Installer, this utility will remove all the folders, files, registry keys, and entries from your system and allow you to start over with a clean slate.

Download the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility
Locate and run msicuu2.exe to install the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility.
Locate and launch the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility on the Start menu.
From the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility window, locate the application in the list and click the Remove button.
Once the application has been removed, click the Exit button to close the utility.

You may now reinstall the application or at least have piece of mind that it is gone

This version of the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility works correctly in all 32-bit versions of Microsoft Windows. The 32-bit versions of Microsoft Windows are: :
Microsoft Windows Server 2003
Microsoft Windows XP
Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition
Microsoft Windows 2000
Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 with Service Pack 3 or later
Microsoft Windows 98
Microsoft Windows 95

Hi,

I have Windows 8.1.

Previously, when I opened a PDF in the Adobe reader,
if I took my mouse pointer up to the top right corner,
the dash and x would appear so that I could either
minimize the window or close it. The last few days
however, when I go up to the top right corner, those
options don't appear. Right clicking brings up
various other things, but I don't see any way to close
the PDF.

So in order to close them, I have to open Task Manager
and click end task. Can anyone help me close the PDFs
from inside the PDF document?

Thanks.
 

A:Solved: How Do I Close PDF in Adobe Reader?

Try pressing the Windows logo key- the 4 panel flag bottom left of keyboard and tap the M key- that will minimize the document. If it does, you should also be able to right click the icon for the PDF document down on the taskbar and select Close window to close the file.

I am having issues with my Adobe Reader. When I run it, I get a "Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library" Runtime Error box popping up. The message says "The application has requested the runtime to terminate in an unusual way. Please contact the application resource team for more information." Reader quits then and off goes the error report to Microsoft. I have sent an email to Adobe, and have posted an item in the support forums, but no answers after a week. I am not sure what to do because the error message doesn't leave a lot of information to work off of. I have tried a repair, and a re-install but no luck. I can't access the Adobe Reader menu bar so I can't update or access anything in the program. Any suggestions?
Thanks.

I was wondering if somebody could help me with my adobe acrobat reader program, it seems to be using a lot of memory, as shown in the screenshot i added, i wasn't sure whether that was normal or not.
Here's the situation I was playing an internet game. which normally runs smoothly, then it started running really slow, so I brought up my task manager and saw that 'AcroRd32.exe' it was using over 17k of memory.
Any help would be much appreciated!

Hi Folk
I purchased my wife a new laptop recently as a present with Windows8 Pro, but she cannot open PDF docs. The docs open fine on my Windows7 and XP machines.
On hers when attempting to open a PDF she gets the message: "The application cannot be started because it is currently updating". Going on-line to see if possibly it is waiting for an update to complete does nothing for the situation.
Can someone please help before she gets real mad with me.
Thanks,
Ken
