Red face Having trouble with Adobe 'update' program.


Hi All,

I have Adobe installed on my hard drive. I get this little icon in the bottom right of the screen saying I have an "update" available to download. But, when I try to download it, it tells me that it's been "blocked" because of some Administor program or setting. I'm the
Admin for the computer and I never set (I don't think) any "blocking" to go on.

Any ideas?

Respectfully,
Regards,

Hi Frank, All,

Sorry I left the important info off, my "bad", LOL!

Well the O/S running now is WIN XP, it Adobe 8? It's on a Del 2400 computer. I'm careful when I do an install and make sure I
don't screw up, but this one has me baffled. Since I have Admin 'rights' I didn't think it would be a problem as I never set anything to 'block' updates.

Hope you and family are doing well. The Orthopedic doctor now
has me putting 20 pound down on the left foot and using a aluminum walker to kinda "hop" around, LOL! I've got exercises that I have to do to strenghten my legs, knees, hips, back and 'balance muscles', Only 3 more months to go, Yippie!

Thanks in advance,
Regards,

"Buck"

Adobe Acrobat Reader?

It's been a long time since I've used XP, but I stopped using Acrobat even longer ago. Try FoxIT reader. It outperforms Acrobat Reader three ways to Sunday.

Alternatively, try downloading a newer version of Acrobat from the Adobe website and install it.

Good luck with your rehab. My girlfriend broke her foot several years ago (she was on a cruise to the Galapagos to see the blue-footed boobies--she turned into one); we still have the walker folded up in the garage.
