Thankyou but I'm not tech savvy and I'm not sure how I complete the installation process from the download address you gave me. I get  an FTP Directory with 7different addresses on it. Which do I click to install?

Hi Anand,

I Adobe Reader wasn't opening pdf documents so I uninstalled Adobe Reader to re-install. I have been having difficulties re-installing as I kept getting the message that the newest version was found. I came across this community and ran the cleaner file. Then I tried to install the file you suggested above and got another error message 1722. "There was a problem with this Windows Installer package". It said to contact the package vendor. 

 

I have several pdf files that I need to open. I am so desperate to get this resolved.

I followed your instructions and cleaned Reader from my system but when I download the setup it says The signature on it is corrupt or invalid. So I can't install.

Any further suggestions?

Anand,

Can you tell me how to create a new profile with admin rights? Maybe I need to have full admin rights for the download to work.
