Installed Acrobat Pro and uninstall Reader does not work defaults back to Reader

I've installed Acrobat Pro, after installing Acrobat Reader.  After I uninstall Reader and click on a PDF file, it automatically opens it in Reader.  I've clicked Acrobat 9 as my preferred software, but next time, it reverts back to opening in Reader.  I'm using a lenovo Yoga laptop with Windows 8.1.

Thank you very much for your reply.  This didn't work.  As you can tell, this is not a high priority for me, just annoying that I have to uninstall Reader every time I open a PDF.  It will open in Acrobat after that, 'til I shut down my laptop.
Here's the order:  I installed Acrobat Reader.  Then I installed Acrobat Pro.  Then I uninstalled Acrobat Reader.  But when I click on a PDF file, it reopens in Acrobat Reader (I don't use Microsoft Reader - at least on purpose!)  Somehow Acrobat Reader is not completely uninstalling and reactivates.  Our computer consultant tried to fix it, but couldn't.   He said he thot some of his research showed this was a problem in Windows 8 and 8.1?
I just tried going into Programs in the Control Panel and Acrobat Pro 9 only shows Uninstall/Change, not Repair.  However, I clicked through and got to Repair.  Tried that (which I've actually done before) and still didn't work.

    Are you using any MS Office third party Add-ins? Test:  Remove third party Add-ins other than PDFMaker.  Test to see if the MS Office apps run afterward.
    Did you attempt to repair MS Office?  Test:  Go to Add/Remove Control Panel run Repair.
    Finally, have you tried testing to see if it's PDFMaker?  Test: Use the Add/Remove Control Panel to modify the Acrobat installation to remove PDFMaker.  See if MS Office applications launch and behave correctly?

  • Can I get rid of 36? It installed an update and now firefox does not work at all

    firefox 36 is seriously broken
    It updated on my computer and now does not work at all. I've tried all the suggestions and no help.....going back to IE

    Hi wskossack, I am sorry to hear that you are having problems with Firefox 36. I am also sorry that we have not been able to get that working for you yet.
    If what you really want is to uninstall Firefox we can do that. Of course I have to ask if you would be willing to let my help you to get the most up to date version of Firefox working. But, Firefox is all about the ability to customize. If you want we can install the last version of Firefox and you can use that until the next version comes out or while we work to get Firefox 36 working for you. I will try to cover every option in my reply.
    First I will cover uninstalling Firefox. If you want to look at the [[Uninstall Firefox from your computer|article click here]] this can be done in about 7 steps
    I would recommend that you completely uninstall Firefox and install it again. This will most likely fix any problems you have right now. Because you are asking how to do this I am going to assume that you have not tried this.
    If you have Vista or Windows 7:
    1) close any open Firefox windows.
    2) from the start menu click on control panel
    3) click on uninstall a program
    4) from this list chose Firefox
    5) click on uninstall (this is located turds the top)
    If the Uninstall Wizard does not run, you can start it manually by running helper.exe, which is located in one of these locations by default:
    (32-bit Windows) C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\uninstall\helper.exe
    (64-bit Windows) C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\uninstall\helper.exe
    6) in the Firefox uninstall wizard click next and on the next page click uninstall then click finish
    7) to remove other files and folders that may not be removed by the uninstall, you must manually delete the Firefox installation folder, which is located in one of these locations by default:
    (32-bit Windows) C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox
    (64-bit Windows) C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox
    The uninstaller does not remove any user data such as history or bookmarks. To completely remove this data, you must manually delete the Firefox folder containing your user profile:
    Click the Windows Start button.
    Type %APPDATA% in the search field and press enter to open the hidden Roaming folder.
    Open the Mozilla folder
    Delete the Firefox folder.
    Now I am going to go over how to get the last version of Firefox installed on your computer. If you want to look at the [[Install an older version of Firefox|article click here]] . If you decide that this is what you want to do please look at the article for some impotent security information.
    Firefox 35.0.1 was the last version of Firefox and you can get it by [https://download-installer.cdn.mozilla.net/pub/firefox/releases/35.0.1/win32/en-US/Firefox%20Setup%2035.0.1.exe clicking here] . The link is also in the article. If you do this you will have to disable the auto update. To do this go to options, then go to advance. Under advance there will be a sub tab. You want to go to update. Then you can select to never check or to have it tell you when there is an update.
    So the only thing left is for me to help you with any problems you are having with Firefox 36. I hope you will give me a chance. In any case, if you need any more information or help with anything that I went over please let me know.

    Hi irenedix,
    After Adobe Download Assistant is installed, you can start it at any time and select a product to download at the bottom of the window. The list updates as new products become available to download with the Adobe Download Assistant.
    Please refer : http://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/policy-pricing/download-assistant-faq.html#main_How_do_ I_download_a_trial_version_of_Creative_Suite_or_Elements_software_
    Alternatively you can try downloading it from the direct download links available at: http://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/acrobat-downloads.html

  • Trying to install iTunes on Windows 8.1.  Apple Application Support was not found.  Error 2.  Uniinstall iTunes and try again, does not work.  Is there a fix?

    Trying to install iTunes on Windows 8.1.  Apple Application Support was not found.  Error 2.  Uniinstall iTunes and try again, does not work.  Is there a fix?

    Let's try a standalone Apple Application Support install. It still might not install, but fingers crossed any error messages will give us a better idea of the underlying cause of the issue.
    Download and save a copy of the iTunesSetup.exe (or iTunes64setup.exe) installer file to your hard drive:
    http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/
    Download and install the free trial version of WinRAR:
    http://www.rarlab.com/
    Right-click the iTunesSetup.exe (or iTunes64Setup.exe), and select "Extract to iTunesSetup" (or "Extract to iTunes64Setup"). WinRAR will expand the contents of the file into a folder called "iTunesSetup" (or "iTunes64Setup").
    Go into the folder and doubleclick the AppleApplicationSupport.msi to do a standalone AAS install.
    Does it install properly for you?
    If instead you get an error message during the install, let us know what it says. (Precise text, please.)

    just installed iOS 5 and my phone does not ring and i can't hear my keys stroke sounds is there any solution to this problem

    If KiltedTim is correct I agree with him. If the phone is not hacked try temporarily disabling your antivirus and firewall that may be blocking access to gs.apple.com. See also this article from Apple: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS3694#error3194

    Try a hard reset and go from there. You might try a manual install (using DFU Mode), as outlined in the link below.

  • I keep upgrading and it still does not work - call me with a solution - now !!

    I just need to take a few pages to take out of a document and create a new doc.  I had the software and now it does not work.   So i keep buying what I am told, by Adobe, will work, twice.  Is this a continual scam to keep buying ??????????????????????????????????????
    I need a solution now.  If you can not help do not contact me, if you do not contact me I am going to discontinue the services I have.  You have 24 hours.  Today is 11/10/2014 6:34 EST.

    Hi Paul,
    I'm sorry for your frustration. You have an ExportPDF subscription, which you can use to convert PDF files to Word format. It does not allow you to remove pages from as PDF and create a new PDF. It looks like you may have placed an order for an Acrobat subscription today, but it has not processed. Once it does, you can download and install Acrobat, and then use it to extract pages from a PDF (choose Extract from the Pages pane on the Tools panel).
    Best,
    Sara

  • 7.1.2 update failed. Now my iPhone 5 is in recovery mode and hard resetting does not work for me. iTunes also will not detect my phone now

    I did my 7.1.2 update via iTunes. Half way through it stopped working saying it does not detect my phone. Now my iPhone 5 is in recovery mode and hard resetting does not work for me. iTunes also will not detect my phone now

    Thank you SO very much for posting this. I had the exact issue with my iPad Mini after the same upgrade. Hard reset failed, computer would not recognize iPad. I had read all the other instructions and nothing worked.... YOUR SOLUTION WORKED FOR ME - with a slight variation.
    I followed your lead and connected my iPad Mini to another computer, fired up iTunes, it saw the iPad Mini in Restore Mode and allowed me to go into Restore (yes, it wiped all of the data but I have a back up on the other computer that would not see it after the failed update). It installed the latest iOS 7.1.2 as well. I then disconnected it from that computer, reconnected it to the computer that would not see it prior and it then saw it as a new iPad and allowed me to Restore my backup and now it's all good!
    I detailed my steps only because you downloaded the previous version - 7.1.1 whereas I downloaded the latest version (7.1.2) and then restored my back up.

    I have downloaded windows support software from Apple 3 time with the same result.  Where can I get a clean copy of the Windows support software?

    Did you correctly format your usb stick in accordance with the Boot Camp installation instructions? Go here to the Boot Camp System Requirements page, http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5634, look for your computer model/year and download the correct version of Windows Support software.
