  • I have MS XP Service Pack 2 and had the same problem.  I downloaded it several times to no avail.  I looked in the Adobe forum for a solution and there were many more people with the same problem which made me feel a little better.  A number of them contacted Adobe and the techs were of no help at all.  After much searching, I did find on the Adobe website (after much looking) a download of Adobe Reader 7.0.9.  I downloaded it and everything runs fine.  That has taught me that the new updated version is not always the best and I will not download anything advertised as "new and updated" except from Microsoft.  Hope this helps.


    My guess is that if it is not running right on many Windows XP systems, that it might have problems running on websites using Adobe Reader also.
