Can i get some help? Adobe Acrobat PDF errors

I am doing a project which involves constant use of Acrobat reader but it is frustrating me. Recently i have experienced different sorts of problems relating to acrobat.

When i tried to install acrobat on Vista an error message popped up “The Temp folder is on a drive full or inaccessible” and another dialog box comes up that is saying “ you are running low space on drive and also check that you have the rights to write in the temp folder” I went to the temp folder Users AppData LocalLow Netopsystems Temp Warning AppData and cleared the folder.

This was according to a friends advice, it kind of worked. The installation went through. Many other complications developed after the installation. For instance when i run applications that require acrobat from the internet e.g hourly rate example, it notifies that it cannot find acrobat .

This is weird because acrobat works in my computer. Another problem related to this is that i cannot I cannot download or view any pdf files on my internet explorer. When i try to i get send or don’t send error reports after every second. I am fed up with all this. I am stressed up! Can i get a permanent solution to these problems?

Hi Nick,

I understand the difficulties you are currently having with "pdf" files using Adobe Acrobat and I’ll try my best to give you suggestions on how to solve them. For the installation problem you mentioned “When i tried to install acrobat on Vista an error message popped up “The Temp folder is on a drive full or inaccessible” and another dialog box comes up that is saying “ you are running low space on drive and also check that you have the rights to write in the temp folder”, the temporary files vanish after you click “Run” to install the program.

This is a bug that exists for both Adobe Reader and Acrobat Professional on Vista. Try copying the contents of the temporary files on "C:Users\AppDataLocalLowNetopsystems" to another folder and run the installer from the new location. For your second issue “Another problem related to this is that i cannot I cannot download or view any pdf files on my internet explorer. When i try to i get send or don’t send error reports after every second”. It is just a web browser integration problem for pdf files that can be easily corrected by doing the following:

  •     Run Adobe Acrobat reader
  •     Go to “File>Preferences>Options”
  •     Check “Display PDF in Browser”, allow fast web view, and allow background downloading”.
  •     Run Internet Explorer and open a web page with an embedded pdf.

1. A well known solution is to repair Acrobat Reader by selecting "Start>"Run.", enter "appwiz.cpl" without the quotes on the textbox and choose "OK," which in turn will open up "Add or Remove Programs". Choose Adobe Reader and select "Change." Press "Next" in the "Setup" box, choose "Repair", "Next.", then "Update." Click "Finish" to complete the process.
2. Fix Adobe Reader’s association for pdf files by running windows explorer, right clicking on a pdf file, choosing “open with”, and selecting Adobe Acrobat as the default program to use by the option "Always Use the Selected Program to Open This Kind of File". Click OK to save the changes made.

Consider switching to an alternative pdf reader that uses less resources, has support for browser integration, and is fast enough like Foxit PDF Reader http://www.foxitsoftware.com/Secure_PDF_Reader/ . It has identical features to Adobe and painless to install. Try it.

Dear Nick Howard,
Previously I also faced this kind of problems in acrobat reader and it is really annoying.so I stopped using acrobat.If you want to get rid of these problems permanently and want to use pdf files then you can  "foxit reader",To do this first uninstall your acrobat reader and remove any acrobat reader temp files if left.Then go to this link:-
http://www.filehippo.com/download_foxit/
Downlload Foxit reader and install it.This will fix your problem.Foxit reader is one of the famous PDF reader and in some cases it's even better than Acrobat reader.
Best regards,
Zac.
