    i have this problem: every time I right click on an icon, use ctrl+c to copy, use ctrl+v to paste, or supr to delete a file in windows explorer, a window pops up which seems to be an installing wizard. the windows says adobe acrobat 8.1.0
    please wait while windows configure acrobat 8.1.0 and after a few secs another window pops up and say error 1324 the path program files is invalid please enter it again.
    I choose accept and both windows closed. this happens every time i right click copy paste cut delete move etc.. and i have to wait until the error so it has become really annoying.....

    maybe it is because i recently instlaled adobe acrobat 9.0

    please help me to get rid of this annoying thing.... i dont want to format since i recently formatted.....

    thnx in adv..

    I don't think your headed for a reformat. Looks like 8.1 didn't uninstall cleanly when when you installed 9.0. Are we talking Acrobat Reader or Acrobat? Look in Add Remove programs and see if 8.1 is still there and unistall it. Worse case you'll need to uninstall 9.0 then reninstall. Be sure and reboot when ever Acrobat ask (and it will), also after installation run the 'check for updates' and install them if required. I like to go into preferences and turn of the 'auto update' feature after that because it invaribly will want to do a lenghty update when I 'm something important. I then periodically check for updates.
