I tried installing Adobe Reader 8.1.2 but halfway through I get this.

Error 1402.Could not open key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Browser Helper Objects\{06849E9F-C8D7-4D59-B87D-784B7D6BE0B3}. Verify that you have sufficient access to that key, or contact your support personnel.

If anyone can help that would be great.

Are you using Spybot or some other security program that blocks browser add-ons?

I've already tried turning off Norton and installing it but I get the same message.

The problem is that the website I need to get to automatically uses Adobe Reader and the current version I use (Adobe Reader 5.0.0) cannot access the information I need.

I do not use anything else in terms of security except for Norton.

Run regedit and se what permissions are on that key.

I can't imagine a web site that requires Adobe Reader. It's only a PDF reader, like the others.
