    A user on here suggested I try this software. I downloaded and installed and it said it installed. I try to open it and it gives an error saying "Sorry, no suitable JRE version found on your system". I have a big map in pdf and only want to print a small portion of it...any ideas?

    Looks like you don't have Java on your computer. It's a requirement for using PDF Split & Merge. You may need to download and install the latest Java Runtime Environment 1.6.0_23.

    OK, I will ask this first. I was on a friend's website and it asked me to update or do something with Java and it somehow changed the look of my computer as far as colors, etc go...it was really odd. Will that likely happen again? Also, I was able to print a portion of the pdf I wanted.

    Personally, I couldn't image using the Internet or many applications without Java. It once was part of Microsoft operating systems. However, a dispute between Sun and Microsoft disolved that partnership.

    Java is needed on a lot of websites for proper functioning or if you want to be able to take advantage of all that the Web has to offer.

    I can't imagine how updating Java would change your desktop so I suspect it was your "friend's" website. I'd be leery of friends who write apps that change my PC without my informed permission.
