    Get rid of Adobe reader & get Foxit--faster, much smaller & less complicated.
    Been using it for 2 years with no problems, even when message is "must have
    Adobe...."

    Unless Foxit has change their stance on PDF packages in the past few months
    I won't be using their reader - I have a large number of PDFs that I use on
    a regular basis that are in PDF package format, Foxit just shows a message
    stating that Adobe Reader is required to read the file.

    My advice to the OP is to uninstall Adobe Reader, and then reinstall it, as
    it sounds like there's a problem with the Reader plugin. I'd also be tempted
    to disable to the Reader plugins, I did that on my own PC at home because I
    prefer to open PDFs in Reader separately rather than in a browser.
