Some people might actually want to use the software they're asking for help with.

Adobe Reader works just fine on Windows 7 64-bit. Can you describe the problem your having in more detail?

Why don't you let the OP decide that?
Or are you the decider on these forums, geez!

Adobe's vulnerabilities are well known and are predicted to get worse.
"Adobe Systems took its share of security hits in 2009. It changed its update schedule and took steps to improve application development, but still ended the year with a prediction from McAfee that the number of attacks against Adobe products would surpass those against Microsoft Office. "

Foxit is a wise choice for the moment.

But it can be somewhat important to people like the poster and someone like my dad.
He always uses Adobe Reader and dosent even takes a glance at Foxit Reader.
BTW,Foxit is the best lightweight solution at this time .
RobR,
Have you downloaded the x64 version for adobe reader?
It will auto detect the correct version of windows.

What 64-bit version are you talking about, antech? I don't see a version on Adobe's site, and I certainly didn't install one.

As far as I know there is no 64 bit version. I am using version 9.3.1 on my Windows 7 64 bit machine.

Can you post a link to the site where you are trying to download this 64 bit version?

There is no 64-bit version of Adobe Reader. antech just linked to a discussion about what version to install on a 64-bit operating system, and the main download page detects your version of Windows and offers the appropriate version which is the same for both a 32-bit and 64-bit version of Windows.

The favourable comments regarding Foxit are true. It is slicker, by far. Ditto applies to the full version, against the Adobe full version.. But the OP asked a question. Perhaps mumbodog's post was not the appliceable answer?
I am running Adobe reader (9.1.0) on the 64BIt windows 7 (Ultimate) I have not experienced any problems

We had nothing but crashes from Adobe Reader 9.1-3 on Windows 7 Pro 64 bit.

After much troubleshooting, the best solution we found was to download and install Adobe 8.2 which works flawlessly. It is the fully patched version of version 8 so security is not a big problem.
The issue is to download version 8.2, you have to tell the current Adobe downloader that your OS is Windows 2003. If you do, it gives you the option of downloading Reader 9.3 OR 8.2.

Installed 8.2 and everything works.

I have been running version 9 since I installed Windows 7 64 bit. I have upgraded through all releases and now at 9.3.2 and still no issues.
