Hi. Recently replaced my monitor with another (Samsung) and installed the drivers. Now my Reader doesn't launch. In the Task Manager the Adobe.exe does show but Reader is not available. I presume it may have been an update from Win10. Not sure if the screen install can cause such a problem.

 

Any help will be appreciated. I have followed the possible fixes on the internet but no luck

 

Thank you

Thank you for the reply, I have re-installed a few times already and the problem still persists.

 

Suddenly no problem. I checked in Outlook and the icon was for Switch instead of Acrobat PDF Icon. Accidentally clicked and the file opened in Reader. Previously I changed the Always open in Reader option. Will not change that again.

 

Thanks
