When I try to open a pdf, all I get is the little Adobe icon on the screen. I can't open Adobe from Programs and I can't get the Adobe website to open. I went into downloads.com and tried to download Adobe Acrobat 6 and it won't download. What is going on? Is there another program I can download other than Adobe Acrobat that works just as well? Help.

Sometimes the easiest way to correct Acrobat Reader problems is to uninstall current version and reinstall the newer on.

Below the first article is a link to list of Uninstall Instructions for all versions and OS's. Select your current configuratation and follow the instructions.

Article One Listing of Uninstall Instructions

The next article lists common problems and suggestions associated with Install of Acrobat Reader 6.0

Article Two Problems Suggestions Downloading Acrobat Reader

Last Article is the Download Link
Article Three Download Link

Hope that helps you let us know.

I can't open any of those three links! I've had this problem before with other links--not all the time and not all links, but lately, every link that has anything to do with Adobe. What is going on? I uninstalled Adobe from Control Panel.

the links should have little to do with the installation of Adobe on your system. Have you tried deleting all your temp internet files and also trying a repair of IE?

Yes--I've deleted all temp internet files and done the IE repair. No effect.
