Adobe Reader Malfunction

I have just installed Adobe Reader XI. Although it tells me that the install was successful whenever I try to open Reader it is unresponsive and then shuts itself down after about 10 seconds. I have tried this twice, I have tried Adobe Reader X with the same result, I have tried in another browser and also the IMI download!
I have a lenovo W520 laptop using Windows 7 Pro 64bit
Any suggestions please?

Go to: C:/Programs/Adobe/Reader 11/Reader
Look for a file named eula.exe (or just eula)
Double click it and accept the agreement.
Launch Reader

  • Windows Installer malfunctioning: Is there a workaround to install Adobe Reader?

    AFter hours on the phone with Microsoft to remedy this situation, the advice is to re-install Windows XP Pro.
    This is an attempt to avoid that action, if possible.
    Does anyone have a suggestion. All the methods outlined by Microsoft have been attempted.
    Another install programme would be appreciated if Adobe will address it.
    ANy assistance is greatly appreciated, Thanks.

    As you are asking your question to an audience of ColdFusion developers, you may not get very good answers.
    A) These forums are not an offical Adobe support channel.  It is a resource provided by Adobe for users to share experience and knowledge.
    B) You asked your question in the ColdFusion -> Getting Started forum, rather then a forum populated by Adobe Reader knowledgeable users.

  • Help with opening Adobe Reader and downloading updates

    I can not open Adobe .pdf files any longer (this started yesterday, prior to that I could open adobe files).
    When I double click a .pdf file I get this notice on my screen: Windows cannot access the specified device path or file. You may not have the appropriate permission to access file.
    So I went to the Adobe download site to download a new copy of Adobe.  When I start the download I get this on the screen:  The instruction at "0x0e3a0068" referenced memory at "0x0e3a0068."  The memory could not be written.  Then two options are listed: click OK to terminate or cancel to debug.  So I click on cancel and I get this on my screen: Internet Explorer has closed this webpage to help protect your computer.   A malfunctioning or malicious addon has caused I.E. to close this webpage.
    I don't have AVG running, I do have avast but I've disabled it.  I ran Registry Mechanic and an I.E. erasure program but nothing helps.
    I have gone into I.E. and reduced the security level to its lowest state but no joy.
    So, any ideas or suggestions on what's the problem and how to overcome it would be appreciated.  Thanks, in advance, for your reply.  Jim R.

    Hi Mike..tried that as well but no joy.  A friend of mine was looking at it all and noticed that it was an I.E. thing as far as not letting me redownload the reader so I went to Mozilla Firefox and I could download a new version but....whenever I attempt to open a .pdf file I get that message, "Windows can not open the specified device, path or file. You man not have the appropriate permissions to access the item." 
    Damn...this is irritating as I need to get to some of thos files as I need them for a Journal I'm working on as editor-in-chief. 
    It all worked just fine last Saturday but starting Monday when I was on my flight out to D.C.  no joy. 
    Sigh...Jim R.

    Under the help menu, there is an option to repair the installation of reader. Did you try that?

  • Cannot download adobe reader

    I get the error message' I.E. has closed this webpage to
    protect your computer. A malfunctioning or malicious add on
    has caused I. E. to close this page.

    Hre's the link to the 9.3 installer. This is a straight up FTP download so if this doesn't work, you'll need to investigate your security settings (it could be your anit-virus or anti-spyware app) further.

  • Cannot download adobe reader.  Have microsoft explorer version 8. pop up screen notes malicious item

    Have Microsoft explorer 8.  pop up screen notes that there is either a
    malicous item attached to the download or a malfunction with the web site.
    Will not download for my protection.

    Try downloading the installer without DLM from http://ardownload.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/win/9.x/9.3.3/enu/AdbeRdr933_en_US.exe

  • Adobe Read Out Loud feature not working

    Anyone else run into this.  We activate it, it scans the document looking for tags, then does not read it.  Any ideas?

    Hey there hdilios,
    Just been trying to sort this one out myself, I noticed that you tried re-installing Adobe Reader with the same result.
    Could it be that, when you installed the first time / updated and then re-installed, Adobe Reader Protected Mode was automatically re-applied by default. Read Out Loud will not function while in Protected Mode.
    You must disable it to hear Read Out Loud document reader, it is quite safe to disable this additional security function, and the only way to make it work.
    To disable Adobe Reader XI Protected Mode
    - Open Adobe Reader
    - Click menu item Edit
    - Select Preferences
    - Preference panel opens
    - Select Security (Enhanced) in Categories list
    - Uncheck Enable Protected Mode at Startup
    - Dialog opens Click Yes
    - Close Preferences
    - Close/Restart Adobe Reader
    - Open a document you wish to read
    - Activate Read Out Loud
    - Choose Option to read Page or Whole Document
    - or setup for Reading with the Accessability Assistant.
    Hope this is the answer you are looking for, my Read Out Loud feature is functioning fine now it had me baffled for a while, thought my sound card was malfunctioning.
    Cheers Jethro

  • Adobe Reader Search function fails

    @@I'm using Adobe Reader Version 11.0.10 under Windows 7 64-Bit SP1 with all actual updates. When i try to search any word or Phrase of contained in the text of a specific PDF File, then the search Fails. It does not come up with the search item i have keyed in. I did not misspell the search item and it is definitely contained in the text, but the search function does not find it. i am absolutely surethat the search item is in text Format and it is contained in the PDF file, because i can Access and search it when i open this PDF file on an iPad for instance. there it works, but not in my Windows envioenment.
    I guess that this problem will not be completely new for you, because other users are discussing this Problem in the Internet as well.
    Can you help me with an answer and hopefully with a recommendation on how to overcome this Problem.
    thanks in advance and
    Kind regards
    Guenther
    p.s.:
    sorry, i am new on thjis platform... how  when aproximatrely does one get an answer here?

    Hello Pat,
    i followed your advise and have used the link contained in point 3 of
    your recommendations --- for reference see your response as appended
    below (https://cloud.acrobat.com/).
    So, in case i made no mistake (?), then you can access the PDF file we
    are talking about when you follow this link here:
    https://files.acrobat.com/a/preview/0f9d2ce4-b4b9-4223-8fd2-723441d7d2ab***
    This PDF file contains a description of an olympus camera. When you open
    this PDF file please go to page 6.
    Directly under the picture on top of the page (which shows a dark blue
    car driving from left to right) you can read the word "Mitziehmodus"
    (without parantheses). This german word is one of those search items
    which the PDF search function of my PDF reader installation does not
    find. There are many other words the search function does not find as
    well, but let us use this word (Mitziehmodus) as an example to
    demonstrate the malfunction as i experience it on my pc.
    Meanwhile i have installed a completely new windows-system 7 from
    scratch. The PDF reader (11.0.10) is currently the only installed
    software. I made this windows 7 installation only to assure that there
    is no other software eventually influencing the search function. But the
    search function fails again when searching for this word "Mitziehmodus".
    One remark still to your statements concerning accented characters.
    Character like ä, ö, ü or ß are quite normal characters in writing
    german language text. But these characters can not be found also! In
    general it does not make much sense to serach for a single character (at
    least in my understanding). Searching for ä or ö or ü results in finding
    something completely meaningless. But this behaviour shows additionally
    that there is something wrong with the search function as it ist
    implemented in Adobe Reader.
    In general i am convinced that this PDF file will be correct ,
    because i can search any search item and find correct search results
    when i access this file on my iPad regardless in what so ever combination.
    i hope that you can access the problem PDF file following the link i
    sent you above.
    And i would be happy wehen you could find thze reason for my search
    problems.
    thank you so far. i appreciate to heare from you soon.
    kind regards
    Günther

  • Adobe Reader changes system color depth settings to 256 colors

    I am writing here for a friend who has a Windows 7 system and Adobe Reader in version 9.4
    Each time he opens Adobe Reader the system settings for color depth are changed to 256 colors, which makes  PDF documents barely readable. It is possible to change the color depth back to normal in the system settings, but each restart of Adobe Reader switches the system again to 256 colors.
    Does anyone here have a clue how to stop this behaviour of Adobe Reader?
    My friend has tried to remove Adobe Reader and reinstall it, but the problem remains.
    Since I am a Mac user my Windows abilities are very limited and I am very grateful for any help.
    Thanks a lot,
    macvet

    Could be a hardware malfunction. Maybe you should take that MacBook to an Apple store and have it checked out.

  • Adobe reader "save as" function is not working

    screen tells me the adobe folder is empty and that the "save as" function is malfunctioning when I try to download pdfs from a particular site. If I'm using EI - it freezed EI on the blank download screen.  I have deleted and redownloaded Adobe Reader but that didn't fix the problem. Any idea where the problem lies?

    "screen tells me the adobe folder is empty" - exactly what do you mean by the "adobe folder" and what does the screen tell you?
    "the save as function is malfunctioning" - exactly what happens?

  • I am having trouble with pdf files  continuously get damaged file message when try to open downloaded pdf with adobe reader

    Cannot open downloaded pdf's with adobe reader. Have latest version of adobe program  continuously get damaged file message.  Anybody else having this problem?   Using imac with osx10.7.1 (latest lion)

    I am having the exact same problem. This is very disturbing.
    Lately I have been deluged with adobe update dialogues. I don't know whether this is real or some kind of bugus malware phenomenon.
    Imagine my surprise when I looked here in the forum and I am not alone.
    Kaufmann's remark that we shouldn't be using adobe reader doesn't explain why it is malfunctioning like this. I have been using the reader on Mac  OS for years, and I don't get what's happening now.
    Does anyone realy know what is going on?

    My system updated yesterday to Adobe reader 9.1.3 and now when I have a pdf document displayed on the web from my gas utility Company that I wish to down load to my PC and I click on "SAVE AS" it does absolutely nothing. Am I doing something stupid or has anybody else had a similar experience?
    I have tried my other sites that give me access to the information in PDF Format and I can save them successfully?? Need help?
