I apparently got stung with the Adobe flash virus and now I cannot open any Adobe .pdf files from the internet.  Fix?

Go to F_Secure's Flashback Removal Tool web page, download their Flashback trojan detection/removal tool, and follow the instructions you find there.
Also install the latest java update which also tries to remove these trojans.
Java for OS X Lion 2012-003
And only download the adobe flash plugin from the adobe site.
Just because you cannot download pdf may not be an indication of the trojan.  There's been a number of reports about problems like that with pdf's.  Look at the More Like This section on the right side of this page.

  • Adobe Acrobat 9 installed but cannot read any PDF file from a Browser window

    I have a new(-ish) PC running Vista and had Adobe Acrobat v9 installed.  However I cannot open PDF files when trying to view from a Browser on a web site.  IE8, Firefox and Chrome all produce the same error that claims I need to install Adobe 8 or 9.  Have searched "Manage add-ons" and found Adobe enabled.  Have hunted around but cannot seem to find a way to fix this.  Any ideas?  This seems so fundamental that it is difficult to believe that (a) it happened in the first place and (b) that there is not an obvious way to fix it!

    Are you on a PC with a profile setup?
    Assuming you are,
    Rename your profile to something like PROFILE.OLD and then relog into the PC.  If the PDF's open without issue, you can remove the Abode folders in the old profile under Documents and Settings\%profile%\Application Data and Local Settings\Application Data.
    Rename the new profile to yet something else like PROFILE.NEWOLD.   Then rename your PROFILE.OLD to its original name.  Confirm that you have removed the above folders from this existing profile.   Perform MIGWIZ I.E. Export files and settings to a folder. Now rename the profiles so that the .NEWOLD is the active profile and run migwiz there - bringing in your old settings.  These steps are only needed if you wish to preserve all the data and settings from your old profile.
    Hope this helps!

    there are much more options for using and viewing the options native in Acrobat than in Safari, obviously.

  • Opening a pdf file from the internet.

    Everytime I try to open a pdf file from the internet a window pops up and tells me that my adobe reader has a problem or gives me a blank page.  I have ie 10, adobe reader XI and adobe acrobat 8 pro.  All this is on win 7.  When I installed the acrobat 8 pro it could not find the adobepdf.dll.  I searched the disc, and tried to direct the installation to it but it would not accept it.  What can I do to correct this issue?

    Yes, unlike earlier IE versions, IE10 has only one executable, but it can run in 32-bit or 64-bit mode.

    After updating silverlight, i'm unable to open any pdf files in the system

    According to your User Agent you posted this question using Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 8.1. Are you having a problem with Firefox? What Firefox version?
    You said you are having a problem opening PDF files on your system. Can you explain that better? Mozilla Support can help you with opening PDF files in Firefox, which uses a built-in PDF reader. Maybe one of these articles will help?

  • I DL ver 9,10,11 of Free Adobe Reader - cannot open any PDF file.

    I get an error message "The instructions at xxxx referenced memory at xxxx. The memory could not be written." What is wrong?

    tI did as you instructed and got no good results. I even restored my Adobe files from several weeks ago from Carbonite and could not load Adobe REader nor open any PDF file that I was previously able to open.
    When I try to open a PDF file, I get a web page that has two panes. One pane on the left has a red box area with some options. The pane on the right is grey and has some options. The web page disappears after about 5 seconds so I can't read it all.
    I tried opening three files after reinstalling Adobe Reader and after restoring my Adobe files. One folder that I restored as "Cache" and had a file inside called "AcrobatFnt11 then another file called AdobeCMapFnt11 and the other file called AdobeSysFnt11.
    I'm extremely anxious to be able to open and load all my PDF files like I was able to for years before.
    Thank you.

  • Unable to open large PDF file from the Attachment list.

    Hi Gurus,
    Users had attached 10 PDF file in the work order attachment list and his supervisor is trying to open the PDF file from the work order attachment list and he is able to open 9 PDF files without any issue, but 1 PDF file is giving the error message as "Database error for <GET DATA FROM KPRO>" and then select ok, we are getting the below message.
    Window cannot find u201CC/Documents and Settings/b2m/SaoworkDir/5015851 Vendor data sheets B&P 2010 SDown XXX .PDFu2019. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click the start button, and then click serch.
    Looks like this particular file is not transferring to the SAP work directory.
    Could you please check and suggest us as to how to fix it.
    Thanks & Regards,

    Thanks for your reply.
    We verified  your OSS notes it's not relevant to us Because our issue is while opening the PDF aatchement it is not transferring to my SAP Work Directory because of that reason we are getting the KPRO error. When I'm opening the other PDF files it's transferring to my SAP Work Directory and it's automatically open without any issue.
    Please check and suggest.

    But it does appears as if the default open is Print; what I would recommend is to uninstall, then reinstall the Reader.

  • Is there any other solution for Adobe Flash plugin crashing than the posted one about updating Flash and Mozilla? I cannot open any PDF files online and updated both Mozilla and Flash player to most recent with no change in the crashing.

    I was able to open PDFs online until version 8. Since upgrading to version 9 and now 10, I have crashes every time I try to open a PDF online and can see the form briefly for about two seconds before the plugin crashes. I followed instructions on the solution to update Adobe Flash and Mozilla, and they are both to the most recent version and it still crashes every time, no dent in the symptoms with the upgrades. I tried also downgrading to version 3, and it sill crashes. Although in some cases I can get around by saving the PDFs for reading them through Acrobat on my PC, it is a hassle as I do not want to save everything to my drive just to see what it is, plus sometimes forms are generated on a click and I cannot see these forms at all.
    I had to migrate to Chrome as I needed the PDFs and could not wait any longer - any suggestions to make Mozilla work again would be appreciated.

    Please check if this happens in [https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Safe%20Mode Safe Mode] after enabling only the PDF plugin in '''Tools''' ('''Alt''' + '''T''') > '''Add-ons''' > '''Plugins'''. You can also '''Disable''' the PDF plugin and try an alternative, for eg. [https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/pdfjs/?src=cb-dl-created pdf.js].

  • I have Photoshop CS2 vsn 9.0 with the Camera Raw 3.7 update and the Digital Negative Converter.  I cannot open any RAW files. Does the fact that I've opened them in Lightroom 5.0 before make a difference?

    When I try to open the RAW file (CR2) from the Photoshop application or from the Bridge (even while holding down the shift key) I get a message saying it's not the right kind of file. When I try to convert using the converter, it won't recognize the files.

    Which operating system are you using?
    Which camera are the camera raw files from?
    Did you convert the files to dng using lightroom or the standalone dng converter?
    If using the standalone dng converter, which version?
    In the dng converter did you try setting the Compatibility for Camera Raw 2.4 and later
    You should also be able to send the files from lightroom to cs2 without converting to dng, either by using Photo>Edit In>Photoshop or setting cs2 as an external editor in the lightroom preferences
