Quite simply, my Adobe Acrobat reader doesn’t work!
When I open a PDF, Abode flashes up on the screen for less than half a second and then closes. I cant access any PDFs. I cant view any Adobe Acrobat files.
I tried to delete Adobe from my PC, it wouldn’t let me!!
I tried to re-boot, nothing changed.
I tried to re-install Adobe Acrobat Reader, and it says its already installed (after it installed a whole bunch of other rubbish that I dont want or need like Chrome!)
Please help me!!!!!??
