Acrobat Reader 5.0

Fri Aug 23, 2002 1:03 pm

Hello. I am having trouble with my Acrobat Reader 5.0. Everytime I try to open a file, whether from a link from a web site or directly from the program, my computer restarts. I tried uninstalling the program and installing a new one from the internet but the same problem persists. Does anyone know how to fix this problem. Any advice you might have would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance! :)

What if you just save the file to the hard drive then open it?

Is it Reader 5.0 or Reader 5.0.5?
I would suggest to update to version 5.0.5 because it fixes Office XP and Windows XP problems.
If you have 5.0.5, no idea what your problem is. But I would suggest to delete and reinstall it and see what happens.
