I'm trying to download the free Reader DC on my Windows 10 desktop PC and it fails every time. Any help please?
I download and the installer won't install - after about 6% it asks me to retry and when I do it fails and says there was a connection error
I tried to download from the address given on the reply and it said file corrupt or invalid signature so it wouldn't inatall

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?

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.
