    Daneii, you might try what Brink said in a previous post on this. Go to Programs and Features and Uninstall the older version and then download the newer version. It would appear there is a problem somewhere with reference to the download speed. Please post back with the results. Also read some of the posts on this site as it is the best that I have found on Vista.

    Re: Latest Version of Adobe Reader


    okay I am trying to help a friend who has a Dell Inspiron 1720 with Vista Home Premium OS.

    Somehow she managed to unistall her Adobe reader. Everytime I try to download it for her (she's on dialup and I have high speed so she brought it here) when it completes all of the desktop icons change to the Adobe icon and it tries to open the files with that program. When I unistall it goes back to the way it was. I did a system restore to the farthest point I could in case when she was fooling around she did something. However, it does the same thing!

    help!

    Hello Bambi, and welcome to Vista Forums.

    I'm not certain what you are trying to ask. You say that it "tries to open the file" after reinstalling Adobe Reader, but did it work like it was suppose to?

    You might also check to see if your friend may have just disabled the Adobe Reader add-on in Internet Explorer.

    Re: Latest Version of Adobe Reader


    sorry to be vague! once the adobe is installed every single icon on the desktop becomes an adobe icon. when I double click on one (eg.,. 'my computer') adobe tries to open it and of course it doesn't work.

    To solve her immediate problem I installed the foxit reader but would love to know why this happened. I will check her internet explorer to see if that caused the problem.

    Bambi,

    It sounds like Adobe Reader may have been selected or become the default program for all shortcuts somehow.

    Clicking on the lnk item in the box at this link will give you a download that will restore the default shortcut associations.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn
