Adobe Reader installation problem

Adobe Reader installation problem I am trying to reinstall Adobe Reader (which some kind person removed for me) and at the end of download it repeatedly comes up with "Error 1327 - Invalid Drive D:\" Any suggestions? Or shall I just pitch this machine off the deck?

save the file elsewhere, d:\ was possibly a removable drive.

Ummmm? How do I do that?

when you choose "save" it asks for a location, change it.

why do you want adobe reader? foxit is much faster and nicer to use and free [ http://www.foxitsoftware.com/pdf/reader/ ] use the "free download" button not the "get it free" button.

# 4 ok - I'll see if I can do that # 5 - Cause Vodaphone refuse to send me a paper statement and I have to access on line and it comes as pdf which says I have to open with Adobe. Will foxit do the same thing? I've found that if I forward the statement from Outlook Express to my Gamil account, I can read it there. I have no idea why?

foxit can do what you are wanting to do.

Oh excellent ! I'll give that a go first then. Thanks so much. I'll come back and annoy you if it doesn't work *cheers*

not "first" just forget adobe reader exists.

Gawd but you're a bossy bunch ! But it worked ! *runs round in excited circles* Now can you tell me how to get rid of its task bar?

Not off hand but heres the lessonnext time you are installing something READ the boxes CAREFULY and UNtick anything you dont want. Many free applications now-a-days 'want' to install extras.

"task bar"? you mean toolbar? the one it asked you if you wanted to install, and you chose "yes"? that one =p i believe add/remove programs lets you do this.
